Philips BT3206 (Series 3000) Beard Trimmer, Is It Any Good?

Good Morning Ladies and Gents,
Those of you whom are Beard Lovers have been waiting for this write-up since the day I posted images of the BT3206 Beard Trimmer on my Facebook and Instagram. The latest from Phillips 3000 Series Trimmers and Shavers.



It's been a long time coming but after about two weeks of putting this through its paces, I've finally come to the conclusion that although it is priced more towards the high end of the scale, It's features, usability and durability certainly outweigh the price factor on numerous levels.


Among the features that stand out most are it's Innovative Lift and Trim system which lifts and captures more low-lying hairs with every path, the Zoom Wheel which gives you the flexibility to choose up to 10 length setting from 0.5mm to 10mm and it's insane self sharpening stainless steel blades which allows you to get the same precise results every time.

Marketed as a Beard Trimmer, the Philips BT3206 isn't only capable of trimming but it has also acted as an emergency shaver for me when I had to attend a last minute event and looked like a Persian foot rug. LOL. Though I was not able to get a perfectly clean and smooth shave out of the BT3206, it was definitely better than I had expected.



So, after a good two weeks or so of using the BT3206 I'm going to give you my honest opinion on it and you judge for yourself. Out of the box you get the BT3206 unit with a tiny brush to clean the blades, a power cord for charging, a warranty card and a user manual. Based on my searches online, the UK version also comes with a cute little carry bag.




The BT3206 Beard Trimmer boasts a whopping 60 minute run time on a single charge, however I have been using it once every two days for around 10 minutes each time (Because I'm a descendant of Chewbaca) LOL. So that's already 1 hour and 10 minutes, and I find the battery still has enough juice in it to probably run for another 3 cycles (maybe). To add to that, I haven't charged the BT3206 since the day I received it from Philips Malaysia over two and a half weeks ago. Now that is truly AMAZING.
LOL! Yes this guy. hahaha...
Remember I mentioned one of the features the BT3206 Beard Trimmer boasted about was it ability to self sharpen the blades? Well, believe me it's true. Just about 2 days ago, I accidentally cut my self because the blades are super duper sharp. Painful? YES!  But it just goes to show that what was said isn't just a marketing shenanigan of sorts.

Durability is something that was not mentioned in the brochure however I find the BT3206's build quality to be extremely good. I've dropped it twice already and there isn't a single visible scar nor any loose / rattling parts. (Yeah, I can be a klutz sometimes).

Owww.... Did I mention that the 10 length setting work great!!! Initially I wanted to test out it's ability to be used as an emergency shaver and decided to put it to it's lowest setting. Guess what? Voila!!! Perfectly trimmed beard and almost clean shaved look.

Today, I generally use Philips Beard Trimmer to trim my goatee when it starts going GROOT on me if you know what I mean. Every bearded man knows that no matter how perfect a goatee you have, there will always be the ROGUE ONE. (Ok, so i'm a StarWars fan. Sue me!).


FINAL VERDICT?
Priced at 175.00 MYR, I feel the price is a bit steep. Nevertheless, if you have the extra bucks then the BT3206 Beard Trimmer by Philips would definitely be a steal. Plus it comes with a 2 YEAR WORLDWIDE WARRANTY! What more could you ask for?
Everything from the build quality right up to the precision and battery life was more than I had expected to be honest. I'm a believer now.

Till next time. Have a good one folks.
