In this segment , I would be answering to some of the popular questions which I have compiled from my comments section and as well as via Twitter with the #Philips50Shaves hashtag or @direct mentions
Questions Asked By My Followers & Readers
Q : Would this make a suitable gift for my boyfriend/husband ?
A : Why not . If your boyfriend is using a razor or even an electric razor and you want to gift him this , it makes a prefect gift anyway. Trust me , I wouldn’t mind one for my birthday
Q : Is it worth it to spend RM 399 (~USD$ 131) on this ?
A: It depends if you have heaps of facial hair. If you do , yes this makes it much much more easier to maintain it. Otherwise I would say, you could stick it to a traditional razor.
Q : OMG I was following your reviews and it is ‘teh sucks’. I know that razors are the way to go , I have tried and electric razor sucks to the max. YOUR REVIEW IS BIASED !!!111oneoneone
A: Uh probably you have tried a different electric shaver and it may not be to your liking. It is unwise to generalize. Anyhow , if you like razors go with it. I am just sharing my experience here with my readers about my experience about the AquaTouch. It can be positive or even negative , but mostly my experience with the AquaTouch is positive 
Q : So what makes AquaTouch AT750  to stand out against other electric shavers ?
A: The word AquaTouch , to be honest , the biggest thing I like about the AquaTouch is that it is 100% water-proof and the ability to do a wet-shave. That’s about it
 
 
My Thoughts & Conclusion 
Well I have been using the AquaTouch for nearly a month and it has been a pretty good experience. Mostly I am enjoying the ability to either perform a wet-shave or a dry-shave. Being waterproof is another bonus as well. To make it easier , I have summed it up for on what are the aspects that I like & dislike about Philips AquaTouch AT750

 

 
Pros :-

  • Lightweight
  • 100% Waterproof
  • Works with Wet Shave (Ideal for Folks who are migrating from traditional Razor)
  • Eco-Friendly/Energy-Star Compliant (Drains ~ZERO Watts When it is fully Charged)

 
Cons :-

  • No Pop-up Trimmer
  • Poor Dry Shave Performance

 
As you can see , there are some drawbacks with the Philips AquaTouch AT750. Firstly and foremost , this model lacks of a pop-up trimmer . The trimmer can be found in higher end models , but however I think Philips should have included that as well as it would be handy-dandy for people like me who would want it to just trim my beard. Another thing which I quite didn’t like about the AquaTouch AT750 is that the dry shave performance isn’t that great. Even my old dad’s shaver outperforms the AquaTouch when it comes to dry shave (remember the small electric shaver – yep that is the one) .
 
Having said that , I think that Philips AquaTouch AT750 makes a great first time electric razor/shaver for those of us (like myself) who want to migrate into the world of electric shaver. It makes as a perfect gift for your son/husband/boyfriend/father (especially if they are still using one of the  old razors). It is reasonably priced well , although I would appreciate if Philips Malaysia would try to price it under RM 300 as it would attract a larger crowd here in Malaysia for people to migrate to an electric shaver. Overall my experience with AquaTouch has been smooth , I did not encounter a single technical problem or what-so-ever during the period of my review
 
Once again I would like to this this opportunity to Philips Malaysia for giving me this review unit and to review an electric razor and thank you to my readers as well for reading and commenting on the Philips AquaTouch AT750

Philips AquaTouch AT750 Review Part 1 : Saying Hello

This is the first time I am reviewing something that is not related to tech (well somewhat related to tech) ,as previously I have reviewed the iPhone 4 , Sasmsung Printer and even iPhone apps and generally I talk about hackint0sh but this is more related to “man-science”. No , it is not about human anatomy , its about a tool that is old as the bronze age. That is right , I am reviewing an electric  razor or which is also known as electric shaver. It is much like other reviews , I’ll be segmenting it to 5 parts whereby every week I would post my experience of using the product and finally I would give my conclusion. I know , it is going to be a bit different but trust me I’ll try to make it fun and interesting. That’s my promise
 

Let’s see what is inside the box – it is a plane ? is it an automaton ? Is it the next iPhone Killer ? Time to find out !

L’historie
Before I bore you to death with technical jargons and the science behind electric razor (and not to mention the history behind it) , let me tell you a funny story on how I ended up getting a review unit for Philips AquaTouch AT750. So it all started like this , I was on twitter and suddenly I saw a friend of mine tweeted about #Philips50Shaves , that they are having a contest and an opportunity to try a electric shaver . Now I join the competition for “teh lulz” (fun). Now I did not expect to be short listed and be selected to review along with few other bloggers as well.  But hey that’s life , expect the unexpected – otherwise it would be pretty boring if you are able to predict every single outcome. This gives me a chance to test out electric shaver !
Now that is my story. I am not the hero but instead the razor. Let me share with you a little bit history on razors (which something we all take it for granted). According to Wikipedia , Razors have been identified since Bronze Ages. In the late 18th/19th Century , straight razors were produced and later in the 1930s , electric razors were invented.  There you go , you are now up to speed about the history of razors. If you want more in-depth history I would recommend you to visit the Wikipedia page which I have linked. Alternatively if you are intrested in straight razors (the ones that barbers generally use) , I would recommend you to check this link out and finally if you want to know in-depth of electric shavers , be sure to check this link out as well.

The Leap (First Impression and Unboxing Video)
For your information , I am a big advocate of using razors for all the while because it is “cheap and cheerful” (as Jeremey Clarkson would say). Why ? It is because it is very simple and straight forward to use.  I have tried an electric razor (as before and I did not quite like it as it only works in dry shave and there is sort of learning curve involved with it , like fine tuning the settings and most importantly it does not work with wet shaves.It was not my sort of thing. On the other hand there are some drawbacks of using a razor as well. For instance , it is time consuming. “Oh God” , that is what I would say every single time I shave – to get a clean shave I have to do it 5-6 times and you’ll have to be extra careful  – otherwise bam you would have bruises and it hurts . I have always wanted to have best of both words (i.e the beauty of using a razor and electric shaver)
 

 
 
Thankfully , Philips AquaTouch AT750 is here to solve the issue for once and for all . Instead of writing it out on how awesome Philips AquaTouch AT750 , I did a video which explains the features (and not to mention unboxing of AquaTouch AT750) and as well as issues that I face when I use conventional razor and how the features of AquaTouch AT750 helps to addresses some issues and not to mention some of the unique features which is found only in the AquaTouch. Generally I would write a long-winded post on the features , but since the Philips AquaTouch AT750 is so awesome and there aren’t any words to describe it – I decided to do a video of unboxing and explain some of the features of what AquaTouch AT750 has to offer.

Now for some reason if you can’t watch YouTube or if you think my voice is not sexy enough. No worries , I’ll briefly explain the key features of Philips AquaTouch AT750

 

  • AquaTec – as the name suggests , the Philips AquaTouch AT750 works with gel/foam and as well as dry shaves. It is much like a hybrid that caters the needs of every man out there. I know some of us prefer dry shaves and others (like myself) would prefer a wet shave.
  • Smooth Glide & Dual Blades – It reduces skin damage and not to mention dual blade helps in cutting hairs much more comfortably
  • QuickRinse System – It allows the shaver to be rinsed , thus making it easier to clean
  • 40+ minutes of cordless shave – That is about 14 shaves in a single charge (compared to a razor which is only capable of doing 5-6 shaves for a single razor)

 
You see , it is pretty amazing that an electric shaver that acts beyond like a traditional electric shaver that we are all accustomed to by offering the benefits of razors  which I find it interesting as I have not seen any
 
Size & Pricing 
 
I have snapped this picture just to show you the sizes of various things. Just so that you would have a rough idea on the size and looks of the AquaTouch. For your information , the shape looks like much of a traditional razor which I think is great as it seems that Philips even took tiniest detail into consideration. However , it is heavier compared to a traditional razor (Duh !) , but I guess it takes a little bit getting used to of using it. Hopefully in the future that it would be light as razor

Anyhow, you wouldn’t believe that the AquaTouch AT750 only costs MYR 199.00. Now the million dollar question is it worth the money ?  I can’t answer that question right now as I have not fully tested this product yet. I guess we are able to find out at the end of the review that if it is indeed worth MYR 199
 
What’s next ? 
 
Its time to get serious AquaTouch – just the two of us

Well , in the next part of the review. I would be taking a closer look on the AquaTouch and putting it into action. So do stay tuned. If you have any questions , feel free to post a comment or tweet to me. I would do my best to answer any of your questions
 
You could also vote for me here , well by voting you would make yourself feel better and you give me a chance to get a complete make-over which I think would be the suitable gift that my readers give it to me for Christmas. With that new make-over , who knows – I might be able to find Mrs.Prasys !
