Philips Norelco 1280X/47 SensoTouch 3D Electric Razor Review

Philips Norelco 1280X/47 SensoTouch 3D Electric Razor with Jet Clean SystemFinding a quality razor has been one of the biggest challenges for me, especially since my skin is quite sensitive. I have purchased countless razors in my time, all of which either damaged too quickly, leaves my skin with rashes, cuts me too easily or were just too expensive to begin with. I however recently came across the Philips Norelco 1280X/47 SensoTouch 3D Electric Razor and have heard nothing but positive feedback about it, and so I decided to purchase one for myself and investigate. I like to tell everyone buying new items to do their research before they make any purchases, because they may just regret paying so much for an item that wasn’t even worth their investment.

Description and Features

One of my personal favorite features to his razor would have to be its GyroFlex 3D system that comes with three different dynamic parts which move on their own to contour perfectly on your face. It flexes, pivots, tilts, and glides effortlessly to prevent any cuts from happening. In addition, it also catches every single strand of hair in seconds with its three specially made shaving tracks; slots for longer hair, holes for short stubby strands, and channels for the long sparse hairs. Because of that and its patented super lift and cut dual blade, it also helps to lift hair properly to get the roots of each strand. From that, this razor gets the job done effectively and quickly without leaving a single sign of stubble.

Furthermore, this razor charges in just 1 hours and that will provide you over 60 minutes of shaving time, and if you conserve its energy, it could last you over 20 days. From the display that it has been installed with, you can be able to watch over how much power is left inside the lithium ion battery and will alert you when it’s time to replace the head. I find this to be a very useful feature, as sometimes I forget to recharge my razors, and when I really need to shave, I have to wait hours just to shave. The entire design was really well though out, where the handle is made to be very easy to hold from the ergonomic gripping that it was made with. The trimmer also offers skin-friendly precision for all your shaving needs from sideburns, the goatees, mustaches, and so forth.

Next, The Pros And Cons Of The Philips Norelco 1280X/47 SensoTouch 3D Electric Razor


One of the main advantages to this razor in my opinion would have to be how easy it is to use. I personally am not so experienced with electronic devices, and so I really appreciate how Philips really tried to make their products like this razor very user-friendly. Another positive trait this razor has is obviously how easy and quick it is to clean. I’m also a very busy person and have problems to keep my stuff clean, but because of the Jet Cleaning System, I can eliminate bacteria, extra strands of hair and any debris it may have in an instant. You will find that this system will make cleaning your razor 10 times faster than commercial brand ones, and the clean will make it so spotless it will look brand new. The Aquatic technology is perfect for someone like me, because I shave after I shower, and so the fact that it has this feature makes me save time and stay away from cuts.


The only drawback to this razor would have to be that it does vibrate a bit and has a little buzzing sound when in use. This, fortunately, isn’t such a big deal since it does get the job done so efficiently and so professionally. Other than that minor con, it is a perfect razor that I would recommend to everyone who is interested in lifelong razor they can count on.
