Xiaomi Electric Shaver - unfortunately, it has happened.

Xiaomi Electric Shaver

I described my first unpleasant impressions of the first moments with a portable Xiaomi electric razor in the unboxing entry. Did I change my mind about Xiaomi Electric Shaver? People who have been tracking my twitter have long since known.

Xiaomi Electric Shaver - something improved?

That's what I wrote earlier unfortunately it turned out to be true and time did not help.

With enthusiasm I started the first shaving, as I wrote at the beginning a very long time I did not shave to zero. You could say that I cut my hair. I was very unpleasantly disappointed, the xiaomi electric shaver pinched, she shaved inaccurately. A large part of facial hair has gone away. I shaved 15 minutes and I could not shave in a satisfactory way. I have read in the user's manual that it takes time for the skin to adapt to the new way of shaving. After 9 shaves, three times a week, for three weeks, shaving should be comfortable. At least that's what Xiaomi declares, we'll see.

The text from the user manual in which it is written that with time the shave will be more and more comfortable to drink on water, at least in my case. It is weak, poor, and tweaks all the time. Several times I tried over 15 minutes to shave off the leftover hair here, but none of the machine kept avoiding it. I tried at various angles, then nothing. This is a strikte travel product, but in my opinion it is not even fault-tolerant. The very idea of ​​a product, a small compact razor I like very much. The appearance and materials from which it was also made, however, Xiaomi forgot about the most important, shaving, is tragic. Buying Xiaomi Electric Shaver is money thrown in the mud. End of dot.

There is light in the tunnel, a new machine!

Recently, Xiaomi presented a new shaving machine Xiaomi MJTXD01SKS 360 Degree. I think it will be a much better product than its predecessor. Priceily, there is not much difference, a few dollars more expensive than the Xiaomi dud. I ordered, I am waiting, I will check. Meanwhile..

I checked the Chinese for a similar price

Life with Xiaomi Electric Shaver was heavy, I had to correct with a traditional razor. After a month of fighting, I decided to check another razor at the same price I paid for the Xiaomi equipment. There was not yet a new model that I wrote about above, so the choice fell on something at a similar price. I bought FLYCO FS339 3D for $ 33 in the Gearbest store, so even a few dollars cheaper.

FLYCO FS339 3D is better than the Xiaomi product?

Definitely! This machine can be used, shaves well. I have never had branded shavers from the upper shelf, but I am happy with this product. It is true that the materials from which it was made are pennies than in the case of Xiaomi, but it went down in the background, it's important that it shaves! At the beginning I had a slight irritation on the neck, but now it does not occur. I've been using it for over a month and I have not loaded it yet, the display shows 12% of battery. If someone is planning to buy a shaving machine then Flyco FS339 I recommend. The set includes a velvet pouch and a cleaning brush.

With a clear conscience, I can write that the hashtag #XiaomiLepsze does not always work. Now I am waiting for a new Xiaomi razor, I hope it will overthrow Flyco, hopefully everything must return to normal.

  • I admire that you persevered, despite this pulling and pinching. I know what pain it is. And I recommend Philips 9000 again. Sometimes there are very good deals on the Amazon.

    • I'm happy with Flyco, it's enough for me. If it breaks down, maybe it will try Philips. And soon new Xiaomi will reach me soon

  • I generally shave almost every day with Panasonic ES-LV6n shaver, I bought a very good condition on Allegro for 450 PLN. This pocket-sized Xiaomi model works well as a travel shaver for short trips, but on a condition of everyday shaving. However, when you have a few days of facial hair, there will be stairs and this machine will not work. Then, in general, a foil electrician (even a larger one with several foils) has a problem, which is why I shave every day, because there are irritations from ordinary razors. Will try this new head model Xiaomi produced in cooperation with Remington. The shavers of this company have good opinions, although the market is dominated by Braun (foil) and Philips (head). I've heard that in some respects head shavers do better with facial hair. I have this pocket Xiaomi model just for the trip, but if someone does not shave every day, he will not be happy. The advantage is small size and charging with a USB-C cable. Maybe just Xiaomi crossed a certain limit and it turned out that too thin shaver (very narrow foil) is not able to shave well (other small travel shavers, however, are a little thicker and have almost 2x foil, but unfortunately they are powered with ordinary sticks, so no it is easy to charge the battery with a USB cable). Interestingly, at GearBest or Aliexpress there are no spare parts, ie foils and blades (I do not know if the blade can be replaced at all)

  • As for the #XiaomiExchange, this is obviously not always better and never one company will be the best in any industry it takes. In addition, the specificity of Xiaomi is cooperation with various manufacturers. You have already described the sleep monitor produced by one of such partners Xiaomi put under the pillow and it came out that he missed the ideal quite a bit. I can tell you about the Oclean ONE brush, which unfortunately fell quite quickly. So I bought a sonic toothbrush without Bluetooth from the Swedish company Foreo (meaning designed in Sweden, made in China). The new model Foreo Issa 2 in Poland costs as much as 799 PLN, but at Amazon.de it can be spent just over 600 PLN (now I see a little higher price, and Amazon will add Polish VAT higher than in Germany). It's nice that the toothbrush is silicone and the Issa Hybrid heads for 79 PLN (in Douglas online are in the promotion for 59 PLN) and last for half a year, because silicone is much more hygienic than plastic. There are still only silicone heads with no white bristles inside and they probably last for a year. The toothbrush is small and it is possible to take her on a trip with the fact that the case is flexible, so it requires some caution in transport. The manufacturer promises that with normal use 2x a battery lasts a year (naturally it is better to assume that in fact enough for a little less.) Here is not an option to buy in China, because there is a big risk of buying a counterfeit Xiaomi is not always better and sometimes better to buy a more expensive solution from another company, and it's fair to say on the blog about Xiaomi

  • It turns out Xiaomi also has a head shaver travel offer https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=AS_20180424075548&SearchText=xiaomi+shaver+electric. It seems that Xiaomi is leaning towards head shavers, perhaps because of the dissatisfaction of the people in the first mini foil shaver. However, head shavers require spherical movements during shaving, so it is generally believed that foil shavers are better. I wonder if there will be a larger, fully waterproof Xiaomi foil shaver, for example with three independent foils. However, if the film is too narrow, in fact many people may be dissatisfied, because you have to shave longer and it is difficult to do it with a larger brush. Finally, I would like to add that Remington, a partner of Xiaomi, mainly produces head shavers, but they are also foil
