Philips OneBlade Pro Review – Is the Hyped Philips One Blade Pro Hybrid Trimmer & Shaver as Efficient and Convenient as Advertised?

Philips OneBlade Pro is the most advanced creation by the Philips Norelco in the Philips OneBlade series. It replaced the Philips OneBlade and OneBlade face and body groomer with more advanced technology. Therefore, you can shave, trim, and edge with the groomer with more efficiency.

In this article, I’ll explain the Philips One Blade Pro with the advantages and disadvantages I experienced. I think it will help you decide if it’s suitable for you.


  • Philips Oneblade Pro hybrid is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. This battery will provide 90 minutes of cordless use per hour of charge.
  • This machine is able to cut, trim or edge any length of hair.
  • An adjustable hair hide comb with the device delivers 14 hair length settings for 14 different looks.
  • The One Blade is not too close like the traditional blade.
  • This machine is for universal use because the charger can adapt 100volt – 240volt.
  • You have to replace the blade once in 4 months (it will depend if you do 2 full shaves per week).

Product Analysis

DuraGlide Coating & Rounded Tips Blades

Philips OneBlade pro hybrid groomer comes with tougher blades than Philips’s other one-blade models.

That’s why the blades or replacement head lasts almost 2x longer than the predecessors.

The manufacturer implemented glide coating technology in the blades along with rounded tips that protect the skin from irritations.

As a result, the shaver/trimmer can ensure very comfortable and efficient operations in every pass.

I found the blades take extra care of the skin, which compels me to throw away the traditional blades, although they are closer than the OneBlade Pro.

Wet and Dry Use

This machine is fully waterproof and is for wet and dry use.

You can use shaving gel, cream, or soap for a refreshing wet shave.

Even you can use it under the shower.

Since water-resistant, cleaning is so easy.

Just hold the machine under the running water for a thorough cleaning.

Pro Battery

Philips Oneblade pro hybrid grooming device is powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

This battery provides 90 minutes of running juice per hour of charge.

This machine is only for cordless use.

If you compare it with the Philips OneBlade initial model, that one provides 45 minutes of running power with 8 hour of charge.

Isn’t it a massive difference? I think so.

Contour Following System

The Philips one blade pro qp6520 trimmer and shaver can follow every contour of your face and provide an efficient and comfortable shave and trim in every use.


Operate the machine against the growth of your facial hair and shave off any length of hair.

Since the blade is not too close, you won’t feel any skin problems.

It is also suitable for sensitive areas.

Built Quality of Philips OneBlade Pro

Philips Oneblade Pro qp6510 electric trimmer and shaver is a combination of black and blade silver color.

This feature provides the machine with an attractive look.

The handle is made with an ergonomic grip, while Norelco used normal plastic in the predecessor (OneBlade shaver and trimmer).

In the handle, there is an LED display.

This display will provide battery status and travel lock status.

The travel lock will prevent your machine from accidentally turning ON if you are going to store it for a longer period or in traveling.

The contour following technology works for both the shaving and trimming systems.

This feature will allow you to shave or trim any face area.

There is a charging stand with this package.

You can charge this machine in 2 ways – with the charging stand and with the charger.

You can use this trimmer and shaver wet and dry.

There is no restriction on wet use. But never use it corded.

The trimming comb comes with 14 hair length settings and feels very sturdy.

Just choose your desired length and create a unique look.

I’m very happy with its built quality, and based on the built quality, I will provide 4.8 out of 5.

Power System

This OneBlade model comes with excellent battery life.

90 minutes of running time per hour of charge is really superb.

The full-size LED display will always provide you with the battery percentage.

When the battery is almost empty, the indicator will flash orange.

When you charge the machine, the indicator will flash white.

There is also a quick charge option – after almost 5-minute charging, the battery will provide enough juice for one trim or shave.

When the battery is fully charged, the indicator will constantly flash, and the battery percentage will show 100%.

There are 2-ways charging systems in this device.

Important – always check the machine and its instruments before using. Don’t use any part without replacement or repair if it remains damaged.

This trimming and shaving machine is only for facial hair, and use it only cordless.

  • For hygienic reasons, use it personally.
  • To trim, shave or edge, only use on your facial hair (beard, mustache, sideburns).

#Trimming System

The precision trimming attachment will provide you 14 different hair length settings.

When you will use the machine for the 1st time, start at the highest hair length setting to habituate yourself.

The settings are from 0.4mm (1/32 inch.) to 10mm (13/32 inch.).

When trimming your beard, be certain the flat part of the comb fully contacts your skin.

All the hairs do not grow in the same direction. So, you have to operate the comb in different trimming positions like – upwards, downwards, or across.

Trimming will be easier on dry skin and beard than wet.

  • Position the front side of the comb onto the blade and then push the projection at the back of the comb into the machine (‘click’).
  • Turn the hair length setting wheel to choose the desired length.
  • After length settings, turn ON the machine.
  • Position the comb onto your skin and operate it upwards, slowly against the hair growth.
  • Turn off the machine and clean it after every use.

Travel Lock System

The Philips QP6510 Oneblade Pro comes with a travel lock system.

This feature will prevent your machine from accidentally turning ON.

#How to activate the Travel lock???

  • 1st, you have to press the ON/OFF button for 3 seconds, then the travel lock mark lights up, and at that time, the LED display will countdown.
  • When the travel lock activates, the travel lock mark flashes.

#How to deactivate the Travel lock???

  • Activating and deactivating are the same – press the ON/OFF button for 3 seconds then the LED will count down.
  • The Travel lock mark lights up and turns off.
  • Now the machine is ready for work.

Note – the machine will be unlocked automatically when you connect the machine to the electrical outlet.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Clean the machine after every use.

Don’t use any rubbing pads, abrasive cleaning stuff, or aggressive liquids like – gasoline or acetone to clean the machine.

  • Before cleaning, be certain the machine is switched off.
  • Then remove the trimming comb from the machine.
  • Clean the blade and comb thoroughly and blow off any hairs that have accumulated on them.
  • Rinse the machine with warm water and briefly ON the machine.
  • Then rinse the trimming comb and blade with warm water.
  • Shake off them to remove excess water.
  • Let all the parts air dry.

Note: the blade is brittle, so you have to handle it carefully. Don’t use cloth or tissue to dry the handle and attachments.

Replacement Parts

To get optimal cutting and gliding performance, you have to replace the blade once in 4 months; otherwise, you won’t get the shaving or trimming result that you want.

Again, the exact lifetime of the blade will depend on usage and how many times you use it in a week.

You need to replace the blade before or after 4 Months.

If you don’t replace the blade, it will become blunt over time, minimizing the cutting performance and increasing hair pulling.

Always buy the replacement part from Amazon provided by Philips Norelco.

#How to replace the blade?
