Nova NHT 1090 vs Philips QT4011

A few days ago I wrote an article on Philips bt3211/15 vs Philips qt4011/15 and I got a query that is there any other trimmer which they can opt instead of Philips. I did a quick research and came to the conclusion that Nova NHT 1090 is almost similar to Philips qt4011/15.


There is not much difference between the two products not even in the price range. So I really recommend you to opt for this product. I have my reason to recommend that and will go into details of the same in my post below.


 Let us start with Nova NHT 1090 vs Philips QT4011.
