Philips Norelco 9300 Electric Shaver S9311/84 Review
Inside the box
We can say that the box of Philips Norelco 9300 Electric Shaver is one of the largest among all shavers. It comes with user manual inside an envelope together with a replacement head order form and club membership card which is basically a card with instruction to start registering your product at their official website.
The user manual is understandable with several illustrations.
For the shaver, you will be thinking that the power is on but it is because the protective plastic wrap covers the LED display. Therefore, you have to peel the plastic off before using the shaver. Other things are travel pouch, trimmer, cleaning dock, cleaning solution cartridge, hard removal tool and the last is power adapter.
The cleaning solution cartridge contains cleaning detergent to clean the shaver. For the head removal tool, it is used to remove the shaving heads from the shaver. It is important to use it when you want to replace the shaving blades. You can use the power adapter to charge the shaver or to power the cleaning dock.
Comes out with the modern look, it is constructed from plastic, but with the chrome metal look. It has chrome look with the shiny finish. The use of plastic body is to reduce the weight and to deal with corrosion. It is one of the best electric shavers for sensitive skin with premium look and feel.
The shaver handle (front)
There are three buttons above the display screen at the front of 9300 which are the power button, the plus and minus buttons.
The power button placed in the middle that you can use to turn it on and to activate travel lock mode. For the plus and minus buttons, they are marked with – and + icons. It allows you to adjust the shaving speed.
You can use the power button to activate the travel lock mode. The mode prevents the shaver to turn on accidentally. To activate, just press and hold the power button about 3 seconds. You can get more information about this travel lock mode by reading the user manual.
Since the buttons are a little bit flushed with the body shaver, it is possible that you don’t feel the buttons when your fingers over it. But, it makes you easy to press the buttons. It also has thumb-friendly button size and locations. It will sound a “click” if you press the buttons just like a computer’s mouse.
The shaver (back)
The back of the shaver is not too much impressive. It has grip-friendly rubber material and small ridges to give you a firm grip. It works when you have to handle it with wet and foam covered hands.
At the base of the handle, it has charging socket where you can plug the adapter if you want to charge the batter. It is also a socket that you can use in the cleaning dock so you can charge while cleaning it.
Important: you cannot use it with the power adapter plugged in.
We have to say that it has very comfortable deign on hand because it is not too light or too heavy. Its weight is about 165 grams with the premium look and feel although it is constructed mostly from plastic and lightweight.
The shaving head is the biggest selling factor because this rotary head shaver with three individual shaving heads on the shaving head block. It has a razor blade and a guard for each head. The outer track works to cut longer hair and the inner track will cut short hair, lift and then cut the flat-lying hair especially around your neck.
If there is hair passes the slots in the guard, there is a spinning blades located under each guard to cut them off.
If you want to replace or change the cutting blade, you can hold the shaving head with one hand then pull gently upwards with your other hand. It makes them apart easily. In case that you want to remove the rings, you can twist them in counter-clockwise direction. Remove the individual shaving heads after remove the rings.
If you don’t want to do that, use the shaving head removal tool. Use the retainer removal tool to remove the retaining rings so you can twist them easily. Don’t panic if you lose your retaining ring removal tool, because you can twist and then remove the rings with your fingers although it is a bit harder to do. After you have removed the retaining rings, you will get the individual shaving heads.
If you want to lock the shaving head in place, do it carefully. It is important to make sure that the retaining rings line up correctly in the right slots and then twist them in place. Otherwise, you can break the tags.
It can be a big problem if you break the tags and the retaining rings because they don’t provide any replacement. They don’t include the retaining rings in the replacement heads you purchase. This is the epic fail that Philips should realize.
With a “SmartClick” action, no buttons to press but with a simple pull, you can let the shaving head unit comes right off and it doesn’t need much effort if you want to remove the shaving head unit from its body. We experienced that the shaving head unit block held quite strong during shaving.
To attach the trimmer with shaver onto the handle, it works with “SmartClick” action. Line it up and then push it into the handle. Once you hear a clicking sound, the trim is already locked to the handle. We can say that it has different trimmer system when you compare it with Panasonic and Braun. It is because the other two sports trimmers are attached to the shaver.
The blade is known as “V-Track Precision Blade” as a new blade design and the angled blades are placed at the optimal position to give a more comfortable shave. Since they sit at a angle and very close to the guard, it is easy for the blade to cut very close to your skin.
When you turn it on, it will beep. It is important to charge the battery fully before using it. You can use this shaver in any country because it is completed with multi-voltage charging adapter. It is designed with a quick charge feature just like in pansonic Arc 5 and Braun Series 9 electric shavers so you can charge it for 5 minutes and then shave quickly in 3 minutes.
To charge, you can use cleaning dock or power adapter. If you want to apply first charge, it is better to use power adapter. Plug it in and let it for 1 hour for fully charged.
The 9300 shaver is different from the 9700 shaver especially for the LED display. The Norelco 9300 has screen to display battery charge status with five bars and each bares means 20% of charge. If the fifth bars are not blinking, it means that it is fully charged. If you go with the Norelco 9700, it has digital battery screen display that tells you in form of percentage.
|Smooth and close shave
Comfortable to hold in hand
Adjustable shaving speeds
Long lasting battery
Easy to clean with and without the cleaning dock
|Flimsy blade retaining rings, do carefully
Detachable trimmer (pro/con)
We admit that it is one of the best electric rotary shavers on the market especially for the performance, durability and look. It produces very close and more thorough shave than other shavers.
But, it is important to get used to circular shaving technique. It is better to not expect something smooth at the first shave.
We only have a big problem with the trimmer that is not attached to the shaver and each time you want to use it, you have to manually attach it. It means that you have to remove the head each time that can give more room for possible damage.

No matter your preference, we will help you here to find the perfect one.

Most men love using it because it is one of best electric shaver for very sensitive skin because they are less harsh on the skin. If you have concern on it, you can go with Braun and Panasonic.

The power source

It is recommended to steer clear of battery shavers that are designed for occasional convenience. If you think about a shaver that can do much better job, more cost-effective in several months or years, you should go with rechargeable shaver.
Wet or dry
If you want to shave in last minute meeting, it is better to use good electric razor because it’s highly versatile and it is able to dry shave. Dry electric shaver also allows you to shave at your desk. But, if you don’t mind you can go with the current demand of wet and dry shaver that allows you to shave in the shower or in office.
For sensitive skin that prone to razor burn, it is important to choose foil shavers that are designed being less harsh on the skin instead of rotary shavers. It is also important to go with the right shaving technique.
Well, we have to say that it is about personal preference and individual option when it is about electric shaver. In the end of the day, what you need is a close and comfortable shave and razor that you can use for years with the quality products. Be sure that you look after it and use it correctly if you want it durable.
