A very cleaner and smoother shave is provided because the shaving heads are freely able to move in 8 different directions over the numerous curves on the face. During the process, it is able to collect 20 percent more facial hair.

It does not take very long to charge. With one full charge, you can carry out numerous periods of shaves before you have to plug it up again.

The shaver has a very fine build, quality and color, and provides a very firm grip while shaving.


On the other hand, the Philips Norelco S9721/87 does have a few cons that might make you think twice about purchasing it.

It costs more than $300 (click here to see the current price) which is a bucket lot more than its contemporaries. You have to pay a lot more extra and for this reason many would be trimming this off their lists.

You can only carry the shaver in the carrying case, and not the other accessories which come with it, such as the power cord or the cleaning cradle.

The Verdict

This is undoubtedly a good shaver. If you really want to buy this, but are stepping back due to the mammoth price tag, it is better if you go for the Philips Norelco S9311/84. The latter one costs $1oo less and is almost identical to the Norelco S9721/87.
