Creating an outstanding product is not only branding, marketing and hype. Philips has more than a century of experience in producing the world's best consumer electronics and 67 years of manufacturing electric shavers. Year after year, new models have proved their worth, but you just know that the top-of-the-range SmartTouch-XL HQ9190 is going to be something quite special. Equally, you would expect the inventor of the rotary shaving system and world leader in shaving technology to put together something that will stand out on the shop shelf. Philips Shavers SmartTouch-XL is designed to give men the closest, smoothest and best shave possible, and this range has already set a new shaving standard. As well as all the other features that have made Philips Shavers the shaver of choice, the SmartTouch-XL range provides a faster and closer shave and features two exceptional technological innovations. Firstly, the SmartTouch Contour Following System has a suspension cushioning system that is a revolutionary innovation which allows the entire shaving head to move. The cushions - highlighted in bright orange - allow the heads to tilt and adjust as one. It is the first Philips Shavers product to have this complete tri-pivoting action and allows the shaver to perfectly follow every contour of the face and neck. Secondly, there is the Speed-XL shaving heads - the world's first triple-track system. These heads have up to 50 per cent more shaving surface for an efficient shave. The system also incorporates more blades designed to catch more hairs in each stroke, and more holes to catch the shorter hairs - ensuring a faster result. The top-of-the-range HQ9190 model has built-in personalised features such as the Personal Comfort Control - three comfort settings to adjust the shaving to your skin type (sensitive to normal) and a chrome LCD - showing the battery life, cleaning reminders and shaving time. The HQ9190 model also has a long battery life so that just one hour of charging provides up to 85 minutes (around 30 days) of cordless shaving time. It comes with a sleek metallic travel carrying case and a recharging stand with a clock. The model is equipped with an automatic voltage selection for use around the world. It is no wonder then that shavers made by Philips have been the best-selling electric shavers in Hong Kong for the past three years.
