Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth even trim After writing an unfavourable review of the Philips QT4015 trimmer (which I returned to my retailer for a full refund) I decided to purchase the Philips BT5205 trimmer. The selling point for me was the 0.4mm trim in the specifications. I used this trimmer with trepidation and was half expecting a poor performance as with the QT4015 model. The two models are polar opposites and I was really pleased with the performance of the BT5205 model. It glided over my face and provided a smooth even trim first time over. This trimmer easily maintains my stubble and is an absolute joy to use. It only takes an hour to fully charge, and can be used both cord and cordless. This trimmer is also completely water proof. Philips have redeemed themselves with the BT5205 model and I highly recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for short lengths with curl I bought this to replace the QT4022 after the battery died. The QT4022 was far better for producing an even shave. The comb on this model fails to lift the hairs for cutting, and so anything below 3.5 or 4 leaves long hairs depending on their orientation, for example along my jaw line. I have persevered with this for months, but come to the conclusion there is no way I can use it to produce an even shave. I think it is probably due to the curl in my beard hairs, so maybe if you have straighter whiskers this will work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting product I bought this product a few months ago and performs quite well. Although head piece did fall off once and took a few minutes to get back on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor battery I used this a couple of times and after that the battery was dead. Even when plugged into the power outlet the shaver will stop. I had to leave the house with a partially shaved beard. Probably the worst beard trimmer have owned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Trimmer It does what it says it's supposed to do. Cuts better than a cheapy no-name brand and the battery charges quickly. Would be good if it had a charging stand. With 3 year warranty it's a good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All the features, excellent value for money I was looking for a trimmer that was showerproof, had a lithium battery and didn't require regular oiling. This one fit the bill. As soon as you take it out of the box, you get the feeling that it's a polished high quality product. The adjustable dial made it really easy to maintain the beard and precisely choose the length without fiddling with various sized combs. It has a lithium battery meaning it charges quickly and the battery will maintain a charge over time. It cuts through thick hair without a problem. I can quickly clean it without being precious because its waterproof. Well designed high quality product. Some have said there were issues with the shape of the comb fitting when you trim around the upper lip / mustache area but I didn't have this issue at all. Only thing I don't like is that the comb fitting feels a little cheap when compared to the rest of the product. It performs perfectly fine but feels like it could have been made out of a more durable plastic. It would have been great to also include a ear/nose trimmer piece to this kit too, that would have completed the package for me. In saying that, the current 2018 models on offer don't compare to this one. 8/10. High recommended.
