Philips has been producing good electric shavers for men for quite a while now. Out of its latest OneBlade range, we got our hands on Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver, which is a one-stop solution for men’s grooming needs. We have been using it for more than ten days and this is what we could make of the new Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver, read all about it in the review below.
Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver review: Design
Open the box and you will see the bare minimum use of plastic in the packaging. Philips is also one of those companies, which is earth conscious and uses almost no plastic in its packaging. The box includes the Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver, two blade attachments, one precision comb, body grooming comb, charger, blade prorector and a carry pouch.
The Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver is dressed in silver and black with good use of rubber all over the rear side of its body for extra grip. Philips’s branding can be found on the front and back. The front also has a single colour LED screen that also shows the battery percentage, right under the power button. The charging port is located at the bottom. Overall, it does look very premium.
The rest of the attachments including the two blades and the combs are first-class as well. These do have a hint of or are fully fluorescent in colour with a good mix of fine steel on the blades and soft plastic on the combs. Placing and replacing any of the blades or comb onto the main shaver is child’s play. Just push the head slider up and you can attach or detach any of the supplied accessories.
Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver: Performance
In the performance department, we faced no problem with the Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver. It is one of the finest ever produced by Philips and it takes care of all facial and bodily needs. Men can easily shave, clip or fine-tune their beard and moustache with the supplied blades and pro precision comb. This combe has 14 length points so that you can easily just groom your facial hair length. Also using it is very comfortable, as it becomes like an L shape (when attached) aiding accuracy.
Moreover, the same Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver can be used to cut the body hair, such as the chest as well as under the arm ones with minimal irritation. We are a big fan of clippers for body and neck hair, which leaves behind a light shade of hair. But not with this shaver by Philips. You get an extremely close shave even on the neck, as if you have used a shaving razor.
Philips recommends replacing the blades every 3-4 months, however, if you are not so regular user, they can easily last you for over 5-6 months.
Charging the device was not a problem at all. It got fully charged from 0 – 100 in under 25 minutes. Also, the battery lasts for a very long time. We have been using it for the last 10 days and we have to charge it just once.
All in all, we found the Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver to be quite effective. At Rs 6,999 it is not too expensive, as you do get a lot of attachments for all sorts of face and body needs. Moreover, this one is easy to clean and creates much less mess than the regular blade and foam.
However, a cleaning brush in the pack would have been a boon. Luckily, we had one handy, so for us cleaning it was very easy. If you are one of those who wants to flaunt great facial hair and loves to style his beard, Philips OneBlade Pro QP6550 electric shaver is a good option.
