Performance wise, Philips QT4005/15 serves the purpose of day to day trimming. I have been using it from last four months. As per my experience, the more I used it, the more I learn handling it.
For performance trimming, you first need to make sure its battery is full. Tidy it gently from inside and outside to increase its blade and motor life before and after the use. It comes with a brush which will help you to do so.
The trimming time with having a little experience with it would hardly take around 5-8 minutes. The blade diameter is big enough to take a large surface for trimming, especially on the cheeks and lower neck.
The seamless design is made to reach hard-to-reach area. Practically, it works as said. How? Philips QT4005 base is firmly rounded to be ergonomic not for just holding but for also efficient shaving. Let's face it, those hard to reach areas are lower jaw portion, right? Its comb (cap) is formerly rounded to make ride easier on that area. However, leaving those are also making a cool trimming style for you, only if you choose to (experience).
Build and Design
Philips QT4005/15 pro skin trimmer is built to ergonomic. As expected, it is. it is slim and sleek. The plastic material they are using does only hurt a little if hold for to long or by small palm size very tightly. Otherwise, for average palm size it feels very sleek. The build looks very stylish.
The plastic material is rock solid, accidental drops or smashing will not inflict any damage or break any inner part. Though, it can get scratched with use and wear and tears.
Blade is made with stainless steel. Blades are made to be rounded to avoid cuts and nick and it serves the purpose.
Philips claims that their trimmer needs only 10 hours for full charging and can go long for a month. On practice, I found that it can go for around 45-1 hours on 10 hours of charging. Which is technically, 5-6 days.
Its not a device for daily use, you might trim after 2 or 3 days period. So, for the purpose this trimmer is still has a convenient battery backup comparing it with actual usage.
As soon you plug charger in a wall socket and charging cable to its port, it shows the green indicator. Though this trimmer does not have any charging beeps, you need to assume that 8-10 hours charging will work for your week.
How to Trim using Philips trimmer?
For daily usage, Philips QT4005/15 will help you to cast shadow trimming.
If you a have beard you need to adjust the blade size for effective trimming on those bushes. I recommend it to keep it on 3 units for beard and 1 for shadow look.
Zero trimming (without cap) will be efficient for getting started with shadow look.
For effective trimming for a formal look, trimming after two days is suggested.
