The Philips Norelco QT4050 Vacuum Beard and Stubble Trimmer is a state-of-the-art grooming tool. It makes the job of trimming clean and easy thanks to its integrated vacuum. This review of the Philips Norelco QT4050 Trimmer aims to give you a general idea of what you’re getting.

Advantages

Battery life – Powered by a lithium-ion battery, a fully-charged Philips Norelco QT4050 runs up to 50 minutes. It also comes with an international-voltage charger that allows you to carry the trimmer wherever you go.

Versatility – With heights ranging from 1 mm to 18 mm, the Philips Norelco QT4050 offers a wide range of looks and facial hair styles. The setting is clearly indicated in millimeters and inches, allowing you maximum control over your stubble length.

Vacuum – The innovatively designed integrated vacuum sucks up the cut facial hair, leaving you feeling clean and itch-free. It also frees you from having to clean the sink after shaving.

Disadvantages

Here are the disadvantages that we chanced upon while reviewing the Philips Norelco QT4050 Vacuum Beard and Stubble Trimmer:

Noise – Because it has a trimmer and a vacuum running at the same time, first-timers might not appreciate the noise. However, you’ll get used to it after the first few tries.

Close trimming – For some people, 1 mm of stubble is still too long. You have to remove the trimming comb, but we have reports saying that the sensation is not pleasant at all.
