Philips norelco shaver 6948xl body appearance

With it on my hand, my first impression is that it has the right size, being neither heavy nor light. The only shortcoming is that, the body exterior just uses soft plastic in the switch, while the rest are using hard plastic which certainly has less non-slip effect than the soft plastic. Fortunately, the ergonomic body structure is well done, which allows the shaver to be held better so as to make up the shortcoming brought by hard plastic.

(Tip: As hard plastic has very small friction, so do not put the shaver on the furniture with slant and smooth surface. In the testing process, the shaver was put on the tilted chair; as a result, the shaver slipped onto the couch. It was lucky that the shaver did not fall to the ground.)

The one with three raised and curved lines, is a switch, made of soft plastic material. Push it up, and the shaver will be switched on. A LED indicator is next to it below, displaying green light when the shaver is fully charged.

Philips norelco shaver 6948xl also provides a trimmer, being able to accurately clean beard and sideburns. Above the back there is a switch; push it up, and the trimmer will pop up. Pay attention to the mark of Non-washable at the bottom, which shows the shaver can be used only in a dry environment. It is not waterproof, so do not rinse the shaver.

Charging port is at the bottom.

Philips norelco shaver 6948xl head details

Philips norelco shaver 6948xl has three cutter heads. This three-head system has the following features:

CloseCut heads:

CloseCut heads are precision-engineered to give you a reliably close shave every time. The durable selfsharpening blades do not wear off to ensure that your shave stays effective and fast.

Flex & Float System:

Flexing & floating heads follow the contours of your face, allowing for better contact with your skin and for catching more hairs, resulting in a closer, faster shave.

These are the heads in normal state

The three heads can be pressed down. They can be simultaneously pressed toward the center, so that the heads will get closer to the lower jaw.

The three heads can also be tilted to different angles.

There is a button below the cutter head cover. Pressing on it, you can open the head over.

This is the back of the cutter head cover, including a total of three rotary heads. Since Philips norelco shaver 6948xl is not waterproof, when cleaning only a brush is available to gently brush the beard inside the cutter head cover.
