Overall, I found this Beard trimmer to be middle of the road. I should mention that I was sent a free sample of this product to review. There was a mix of pros and cons I found in the features of this product. It did not live up to my higher expectations. From opening the packaging, I was pleased by the look and size of the trimmer. It looked sleek and sophisticated. It wasn`t overly bulky and fit well in my hand. The padded grip was a nice feature. Before using it, I needed to charge it. To charge this trimmer, they only supply you with the USB charging chord but no outlet for the chord. While I understand this makes sense in 2018 where most people should have one of these charging ports, it was still a nuisance to bring the trimmer from my bathroom to bedroom to charge. Once charged, it took me a couple tries to turn on with my thumb. The switch that is supposed to be turned up, took too much effort and almost appeared stuck at one point. The trimmer ran great and cut clean to my skin. I did enjoy the width, as I found it ample and not overly bulky like other brands. It was able cut in tighter spaces. The four trimmer attachments (#1-#4) were adequate. I did like the newer design of each attachment and that they came in different colors. However, you needed to keep the attachment flush with the face otherwise if you tilt it, it cuts lower than the suggested length. It would be a nice feature to have a couple other attachments like a nose or ear trimmer. In summary, this is an adequate beard trimmer. It could improve on some features, but you should be satisfied by the purchase.
