Philips S9211/26 Electric Shaver UK Review


Thanks for taking your time to read our review of the popular Philips Series 9000  Wet & Dry Men's Electric Shaver with the model number S9211/26.

This is a waterproof wet/dry electric shaver that has a precision trimmer, a smart cleaning system and comes with a charger and a UK 2 pin plug.

This is a shaver that uses a rotary system. Part of that system is 3 rotary shaving heads that also move and flex to make sure all the contours of your face and neck are equally covered.

This shaver should be moved in small circular motions. Those motions will then capture those hairs that grow in different directions, even in hard to reach places, for the very best shaving results.

The flexible heads adapt really well to the many facial contours we have. The end result is that you can end up with a clean, comfortable and close shave.

All our product recommendations are based on our independent research which we conduct online by reading the many reviews we find at online websites. This review contains affiliate links and we may receive a commission for purchases made.

A Little About the Philips Brand

The Philips Brand

This is a long established household brand and started way back in 1891. The company was founded by Gerard Philips and his father Frederik Philips in Eindhoven (Netherlands). In 1939 the company launched its pioneering rotary electric shaver, the Philishave.

Philips has remained fully committed to innovation. It has a focus on health and well-being. It currently has several ranges of electric shavers that include the 5000, 6000, 7000 and 9000 Series of electric shavers.

Our Verdict on the Philips S9211/26

This razor is part of the Philips 9000 series, and the 9000 is their latest and most up to date range of electric shavers. That means you should have the latest technology available in this particular range.

92% buyer satisfaction based on 700+ online buyer reviews

  • Overall this shaver has sold fairly consistently for the Philips brand.
  • There are over 700 online reviews that we could find so it shows that it sells well online
  • The satisfaction rating of 90% has remained solid for quite a few months so overall buyers clearly like this razor for a close and comfortable shave.

This is one of 6 shavers in this 9000 series range. As you can see it sells well and gets pretty solid reviews. It is certainly not a cheap option, but like many shavers the price should drop over time.

The fact that it does have the latest Philip's technology means you are getting a modern, up to date high quality shaver.
