This product is poorly designed and i regret buying it. Build quality lackingI have just been diagnosed with a skin problem and now need to use a shaver for sensitive skin. In my view the shaver is poorly designed and the build quality is not the best. Not happy with the clip on beard,moustache and sideboard trimmer. I just would wonder how this clip on mechanism for it will last. No blade protector or stand seems to be available . Also it gives me a poor shave compared to my old razor. I have always used Philips shavers but i absoluetley regret buying this model

Good, but missing some featuresAs a long-term user of Philips shavers featuring the built-in gel dispensing systems, when spares for my faithful 8420 became unavailable (why, Philips?) I decided on this shaver at Christmas 2016 as being likely to give the most comfortable shave of the current range.
After 2 months of use, I'm impressed by the battery life and the charging time, and the trimming head works well, while the shave itself is a little closer than my old razor - although you would expect that, as those heads had done nearly 2 years.
My main gripe is the need to apply pre-shave gel manually, and another annoyance is that I haven't been able to find a gel that comes even close to the Nivea pre-shave balm used in the 8420. Another minor gripe is the size of the surrounds to the heads, which make it difficult to achieve a close shave around lips and nose. The shaver does not have a stand, but my old charging stand has been pressed into use - though not for charging.
Overall, this a well-designed shaver, robust and easy to grip, and head cleaning is a doddle. Nice case, too. But if Philips ever introduce a direct replacement for the 8000 series, this one will become an immediate stand-by. In the meantime, it does a pretty good job.

Fantastic shaver for sensitive skinEasy and simple to understand instructions were included in the box. I love the additional extras of the beard trimmer and face brush which are included with the Series 7000 shaver! Both are a real bonus. The face brush was of great use. It’s handy for exfoliating your skin and prepping the hair pre-shave. The travel case that's included for the shaver unit is also fab. I was a little disappointed that the shaver come with no charge at all on taking it out of the box, as most electricals these days will come with at least some charge in them.
When it comes to shaving, it was an extremely comfortable shave. There was no sensation of tugging at the longer hairs, as I’ve experienced this with numerous other electric shavers, so I’m glad to have finally found one which doesn’t add unnecessary discomfort. Post-shave I can honestly say there was no ‘razor burn’ sensation at all, which as someone with extremely sensitive skin I’m used to feeling. One slight negative while using the shaver, is that it can sometimes prove to be quite difficult to grip onto while wet if you’re planning to use it in the shower, although it’s not a major flaw when compared to its almost flawless shave for a sensitive electric shaver. The battery life is also great. I’ve been using it for around 10 days so far and haven’t needed to re-charge the shaver yet...

Poor design of headPhilishave shavers used to be well designed. No longer is is possible to easily replace the heads and the retaining rings. I made the mistake of buying a 7000; remove the orange circlar rings so that you can clean the head and will be impossible to get the rings back in place. Instructions come with pictures that apply to a multitude of models which don't seem to guide you through the cutter removal and replacement procedures. Impossible to use without the orange rings.

5 STARS - Best Shaver EverThis is the best electric shaver I have ever owned. It is very well designed, comfortable to hold and on your face. The shaving heads angle nicely, with no noticable iritation on the skin, even though mine is very sensitive there is no rasor burn at all. The cleaning and grooming attachments are of the same, high quality - comfortable to use with the same great results. Excellent battery life. This product makes shaving a pleasure, not a chore.

Best shaver I've ever hadI've had numerous electric shavers over the years, from different brands but this one tops the lot. I've got sensitive skin and the microbead coating really does help the head to glide smoothly over the skin whilst still giving a great close shave. I've never felt my skin so smooth after a shave. The clip-on razor is great for trimming my goatee and eyebrows. The quick charge is great too and easy to clean.

Poor shaveCompared to my old Philips the 7000 series is useless.
brought it 15 months ago. Because it was so bad used a wet throw away razor instead. Contacted Philips they said you need new blades, It has less than a 100 days use. my old one lasted 10 years before replacement. still under warranty but they expect me to buy new blades. do not buy this product if you want a shave.

Good but no blade cover as standard!!Been interested in this razor for a long time, finally decided to upgrade from my 5 series and upon opening found the most basic cover to protect the blades wasn't inside, further investigation shows they don't come with one?? Putting the razor in the case every time I've used it will become tedious. Razor very good though
