High end style, close shave and less irritated skin!
By far the best electric shaver I have used, it gives me the feeling on my face as if i have had a wet shave, but without the hassle. No longer do I need to run a bowl of hot water, soak my face and apply shaving gel, or wash down my face and sink after and dry off.
As a result my face is not red, rough with cuts or nicks and i no longer have rashes from the shaving gels. A real plus for me is that I can have one shave a week, normally on a sunday night and it sees me through work until Thursday due to the clean shave. By friday when i work at home i have some stubble and this grows until Sunday when i shave again. To get this close a shave from this shaver on one hit is amazing, it cuts really well. I can shave my face in about 10 mins, not bad once a week!
The feel of the shaver is phenomenal, its design is sleek, its made from a quality metal product and has a decent weight to is. The travel pouch makes it easy to pack in my suitcase, although the battery charger is quite big so I would charge before I travel.
I like the idea of the wireless charging and its my first wireless charging device in my house so its new to me, but i expect this will make life easier as the technology becomes more commonplace. Having said that the battery lasts a long time. I have shaved 6 times now and the battery is only at 40%!

The S9000 Prestige is by far the best electric shaver I have ever used and matches any wet hand razor for closeness of shave.
I have always founds Philips shavers to give me a comfortable shave and have over the years had several.
In replacing my current Philips shaver of 6 years with the S9000 prestige I was not prepared for the wonderfully close shave I got in using it for the first time. It was something I had not experienced before in an electric shaver and am highly impressed.
The ability to use the shaver in all wet conditions is exceptional and can be used with lotions for sensitive skin which I found a real bonus.
The ergonomics of the shaver's design makes for a very comfortable feel and control when using it. The shaver is blessed with 3 speeds which aids the quickness of shaving and also a battery charge usage indicator.
The charger itself is wireless flat pad and charges very quickly. I also found I could use the pad for charging my mobile phone, which was a real plus.
The complete contents are housed in a very nice protective case but I was disappointed to find there was no protective travel pouch for the shaver itself for travelling away for a few days where the charging pad and other contents would not be required.
Considering the price this should be inclusive in the package and an upgrade/enhancement Philips should make sooner rather than later. It does not appear to be something you can even purchase separately on the Philips website either. For people that like to look after their purchases and protect them when traveling this is an oversight that could easily be remedied.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend the S9000 Prestige to any electric shaver user. You will not be disappointed.

The best electric shaver... ever!
Best electric shaver I have ever used. I have been using this shaver for a few weeks now and it shaves today as good as it did as when it came out of its box the first time. It glides over my face effortlessly without causing any irritation...every time! I was surprised that an electric shaver gives me a really close shave, like a wet shave but with no mess. No more do I need to decide upon the best shaving gel to buy or wait until the razors are on offer. No more mess and fuss that goes along with a wet shave including cleaning the sink after use. The only maintenance required is simply to rinse under the tap and leave to dry - works perfectly. The shaver has three speed setting and I have found that the first setting, lowest speed, suits me just fine, the third setting is more suitable for beards and the cleansing brush attachment. It has a good battery and battery readout that works well for me. I haven't recorded the length of use between fully charged down to no battery life, I do know for sure the battery lasts far longer than any shaver I have ever used. The sleek luxury style case has a solid moulded tray for the shaver and accessories. It comes with a Qi charging pad that also charges my phone - no more additional USB cables to add to my fleet - the charging pad is a real benefit and compliments the technologically advanced shaver. My prestige shaver does not disappoint, the whole package: the shaver, charging pad, case and accessories provide a top quality experience.

Real Prestige product
I have this shaver from one and half months and would like to say that this product is a good example how name can match the quality.
In my 40+ years of shaving experience I have used various types of shavers, including three other electric devices. Prestige S9000 is the first one which in final result of shaving really matches the best types of classic blade shavers.
Shaving is really very close, actually in most cases I cannot find a difference with blade shaving. Even when I have found some small differences I suspect I have not been precise enough with shaving because now I do it in parallel with some other morning tasks, as browsing the news on laptop or TV, or boiling my tea. I haven’t tried with S9000 wet shaving, but for me dry one is good enough. Skin irritation is almost completely missing, to the level that couple of times I forgot to apply aftershave gel on the end!
From engineer’s point of view I am impressed by the battery capacity. One shaving discharges it by about 5% only, so the device can be charged ones in two weeks. This is a very good parameter, as the battery charging pad is quite large and will not be convenient to take in short business trips or weekend holiday trips. Numerical indication of remaining capacity is very useful to avoid surprises of this type.
Moving to wireless charging is in my opinion very smart idea of Philips engineers. It would be great if in the near future other Philips personal health and care device are unified in that way, what will greatly reduce the mess of various charges and specific cables for each device.
In general – I would suggest this shaver to everybody who would like to have an electric shaver which shaves as close as blade shaver, keeping comfort of dry shaving.

The best performance from an electric shaver
When i received this shaver, I was instantly impressed by the packaging - opening was a great experience and made me think of other high end items such as Apple and Bose.
Inside the shaver has a posh looking pouch, its big, but needs to be to house the wireless charger as well as the shaver itself. Impressive look for a gift.
The Shaver charged on the wireless charger quickly, the sleek lines look very good, and the way the shaver sits in the charger is very stable, with some kind of magnetic force holding everything steady.
So to the best bit. Ive had a few shavers over the years, many that have claimed to be the best, closest, smoothest, quickest.
The S9000 Prestige beats all of them and some.
For me, the closest shave ever with an electric, no pulling which means no nicks or cuts.
I've shown this to some friends and male family, they all loved the look, feel and weight of the product and of course as an added bonus you can use the wireless charging plate for your phone.

Prestige by name Prestige by nature
I am new to the electirc shaving game and after using the Philips Shaver Prestige I must say I am converted.
From the feel of the box to the first time you open the travel pouch and press the ON button, you just know you are in for something special.
I was really impressed with the Qi charging pad that comes with the shaver - which not only allows you to charge your shaver but also compatable mobile devices too - who knew!
Using the shaver is an experience in itself - with 3 modes which makes your shave even more special.
The biggest thing to note here is the closeness of the shave. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought this would get so close to my skin with such minimal irritation - an occurance which ALWAYS happens when I wet shave with a blade.
As I'm new to this what I also loved was the short tutorial videaos which I feel really helped me get the most out of my shave.
I would highly reccomend, you get what you pay for and that is Prestige!

Stunning Series 9000 Prestige Wet and dry SP9863/14
After a Lifetime of Philips Shavers & Up until my Last ( Series 9000 RQ1280 Wet and Dry), I thought it would be hard to Find Yet Another Shaver to be as good as the Last never mind far Better. Well On the 11th day of the 11th Month of 2018, I bought the Stunning and Beautiful Designed Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige Wet and dry electric shaver, Series 9000 SP9863/14
As Philips Put It "Our best for closeness and comfort"
Well 3 weeks after it arrived I thought it's time I put Finger to Keyboard and write my review, Of the Worlds most Stunning Wet & Dry Shaver One Could Buy In My Eyes and Why.
First, As I opened to Box when it arrived and it slid out of its protective wrap I was so impressed by the feel, look and stunning engineered Stainless Steel Body and heads. The display cover took only a second to be removed and by the time I had Done that I knew the CONSIDERED COST OF This Unit cost me was and IS worth every Penny.
After I had charged to unit for the first time on its Beautiful
Wireless Dock I hit the power Button and when I say Its Quiet you will only believe me when you try it for yourself, Its Near silent. & the closeness and comfort IS Second to None. The Nano Blades are just so sharp and they get so close you will be astounded to think you shaved without any nicks to you face neck or chin and the results are just amazing and Yes The Closeness has to be felt to be believed but It is Best than a wedding day wet shave of any razor I have use in my 64 years of Life..
The added items such as the Trimer,Brush Head and Its Case Are Stunning Quality as you might expect if a tiny bit large when out and away from home But its worth it to keep everything safe and I like it after reflection .
My Only Con is there is no Blade Guard as standard As do I like to keep the heads covered myself.

A very close, comfortable shave - as good as wet shaving.
The shaver itself comes in a large, premium quality box. Inside the box is a zip open clam shell type case that holds the shaver, power leads, attachments and wireless charger. The shell case also has a premium feel and sturdy construction and tightly holds the shaver and all accessories.
A fairly unique feature of the shaver was wireless charging. Conveniently, the wireless charger (called a Qi charger) also works with many modern smart phones, and allows for very easy charging. Unfortunately for the power aspect, my model only came with a normal 2 pin plug for use in bathrooms, but no 3-pin adapter to plug into a normal socket. I did not have a 2 pin socket so I needed to buy an adapter plug to charge it. For this price it should come with a normal mains plug adapter. Fortunately, the shaver charges very fast; reaching 100% in only an hour.
I wanted to properly test the shaver, so I didn’t shave for a week so I could test it with some proper stubble. The first time I used it I dry shaved, and the results were much better than I expected. I got a very close, comfortable shave without any irritation. After a few more days of not shaving I tried a wet shave, and I was even more impressed. The result is excellent – giving me an even closer shave, free from any irritation or rashes, and it was a very comfortable to use (especially with the 3 power settings). The shaver was also very easy to clean – only taking a few seconds under a tap to be fully clean. Each shave seemed to take about 5% of the battery, so should last around 2 weeks of shaving on one charge.
Overall, I am very impressed with the shaver and I have not bothered to shave with a razor (or my old shaver) since it arrived. In summary – as good as a wet shave (even on almost a week of beard growth) whilst remaining very comfortable and the battery lasts a long time.
