    The blades of the round heads are only at the outer ring of the heads...

    The entire foil of foil shavers is the cutting surface....



    Actually I not sure too....

    Was at Plaza Sing Best listening to a salesman at the counter....
    He commented weak points of round head shavers:
    - the straight foil types uses foil to cut so they cut very close, whereas round type, they use the blades beneath the foil to cut. Hence round type cant cut as close due to the foil thickness
    - round type difficult to cut...needs repeative circular motion
    - extremely difficult to cut the moustache area as not much space for you do do circular motion
    He mentioned that round type is more suitable for foreigners, not suitable for asians... cant remember why.
    Anyway i am also not sure if everything he said is true

    I bought a pair of good quality Solingen tweezers to pluck my chin hairs so that I don't need to shave for at least 2 weeks.

    I also got Mach3 and some Philishave thing.

    i used both Philips & Braun before

    Philips round type the sahve is not as close as Braun, but the feeling while shaving is shiok, more shiok then the Braun.

    Now using Braun, will continue using Braun

    Have used both too but find the round type better.
    Both will shave as close. Not sure about the battery type but I have been using their rechargable ones. Also Braun foil may break at times and cut but not the Philips ones.
    Comparing Braun's 360 complete 8995 against Philips Smarttouch XL 9190 (both top of the line) side by side the Braun's is no match for comfort and feel. On top of that the Philips is totally waterproof and easy to clean thus does not require the auto clean. Note that Philips model does also comes with autoclean attachement but is not sold in Singapore, only in Europe. Only problem with Philips is their after sales service which sucks big time.

    i tried both braun and phillips, using braun foil type, yes it does gives u a clsoer shave, however the round type by phillips is more comfortable on the skin.

    been using philips all the while, all below $100. but quite hard to find a good shaver with only 2 round head. those highend shavers are 3-head

    i think almost all philips shavers can wash under tap

    yes, the philips ones are easier to clean. as for Braun foil breaking, never occurred to me at all (keeping fingers crossed)

    also, when using the philips, i took a longer time to finish shaving... maybe bcos its the shiok feeling thats why..

    as for me, Braun still offer a closer shave

    but recently (before Xmas), Braun has been rather aggressive in their promo in departmental stores...
