When it comes to trimmer and shavers in India a lot of international and local players competing. While there are quite a few brands for trimmers currently in the market, two brands that stand out are the ones being compared in this post.  Read on to find out which trimmer, Syska Vs Philips, is a better buy in India.

Summary – Syska vs Philips, which one to buy??

I always believe in not being brand loyal. It is always better to objectively analyse all the options available in the market and buy the one that best meets your needs.

But it is very difficult for me to pick one brand over the other because both Syska and Philips are good brands that manufacture durable trimmers. Their trimmer and shavers are available in various price ranges to suit the diverse needs of customers all over India. Both brands have the best trimmers in the market today. However, what you can do is opt for the best model between these brands.

Below are the models that I recommend buying.

If you want to opt for a Syska trimmer, you can invest in this trimmer has the super-fast charging function that makes it ready to shape your hair with 90minutes runtime battery backup. The comfortable and lightweight design makes it easy to use, also it Travel lock buttons makes it safe for travelling and storage.

But if you are a Philips lover, I would highly recommend this affordable yet efficient model. The contour-following technology of the trimmer styles, trim and shave while keeping the skin feeling soft.

For those of you who don’t mind spending slightly more, I would recommend this shaver as the Aquatouch shaver protects your skin while you enjoy a refreshing shave. The comfort cut blade system with rounded profile heads glides smoothly across, and they’re designed to protect your skin.
