[Review] Mi Electric Shaver S500 - Floating Surface Cleaner Shave

Mi Electric Shaver S500 shaver is designed to glide smoothly over your skin, while cutting each hair exceptionally close, even on a 7-day beard. S500 is a flagship shaver, every part engineered to meet the highest expectations. Let's start with the swift Unboxing!

In conjunction with the celebration of 10th anniversary and annual Mi Fan Festival 2020, Mi Electric Shaver S500 was introduced.

Main Features:
  • Floating veneer is cleaner and decompression design is more comfortable.
  • LED digital display. 4 large function display, power display, charging reminder, travel lock, avoid accidental boot.
  • 3 cutter heads float 360 degrees, fit the contour of the face, leaving no dead ends.
  • Double-layer blade for a smoother shave.
  • Removable cutter head for easy disassembly and cleaning.
  • PPG anti-fingerprint paint.
  • IPX7 level body waterproof, can be directly washed, wet and dry double shaving.
  • Type-C charging makes travel more convenient.
  • Charging time: 1.5 hours
  • Battery life: 60 minutes

The shaver also comes with a digital LED screen on the front which displays the battery status and offers low battery warnings, shaving reminders, and travel lock functions.

Mi Electric Shaver adopts a Type-C charging port, similar to your smartphone with the need of bringing extra charging cable. The battery will last 60 minutes from one full charge and give you 2 months of usage.

Sporting a Mabuchi Motor 260, the brand new Mi Electric Shaver S500 pairs a high torque and rotational speed with two different modes to meet your different shaving needs. The 360° floating triple-blade design allows the device to fit closely against the face and effectively reach every corner. Featuring an IPX7 waterproof body, the device can be rinsed directly and enables both dry and wet shaves.

Complex facial contours and beard directions require a more flexible razor to deal with. Mi Electric shaver S500 comes with 3 cutter head, 360° floating veneer system, easy to deal with the beard of different corners of the face, can be shaved at one time. In order to shave clean, the user is accustomed to pressing the cutter head, the facial pressure is increased, and the shaving comfort and smoothness are lowered. With IFT suspension technology, the cutter head can be suspended and floated to cushion facial pressure for smooth and comfortable shaving. In addition, the double-ring knife net increases the area of the beard entering, which is 50% more than the single-ring knife net and the shaving speed is faster. The ratio of inner and outer ring mesh teeth to the number of blades is 1:2, which effectively balances the shaving efficiency of the inner and outer rings.

With the double-layer blade, you can shaved more thoroughly. The beard softly collapses and grows in different directions, and the knife net itself has a certain thickness, which is easy to leave a stubble. Using a double-layered blade, the auxiliary knife first lifts the beard, and the main knife then cuts the beard quickly and shaves it more thoroughly.

The LED display shows speed, travel lock, clean/error and battery level indicator. It’s easy to read remaining battery percentage with no worries about running out of power when shaving.

How to Use:

  • Press the button to turn the shaver on/off. Once the shaver is turned on, the battery level indicator will display the battery level simultaneously, and the clean/error, travel lock, and speed indicators will sequentially turn on and off. Once the shaver is turned off, all indicators will go off.
  • When the shaver is turned on, press and hold the button for 1 second to switch between speed mode (speed indicator is on) and standard mode (speed indicator is off)
  • Apply gentle pressure while shaving your face in circular motions. It is not necessary to repeatedly shave the same area to achieve a clean (shave dry for an optimal result).

  • Travel lock:

•Enabling the travel lock: When the shaver is turned off, press and hold the button for 3 seconds to enable the travel lock.
•Disabling the travel lock: When the shaver’s travel lock is enabled, the travel lock and battery level indicators will blink if you press the button. To disable the ravel lock, press and hold the button for 3 seconds.

My Experience
At first glance it looks very modest shaver but it's out to amaze with all the underlying features, like supports 3 degrees of 360° floatation and adapts to the face and its contours, the Infinity Floating Technology, which makes the heads float, making the shaving process smooth and much more comfortable. On top of that the Dual Layer Lifting blades for more effective shaving. And even if the power is insufficient, you could Plug & Play that is to use it while charging via the USB type-C. Lastly, the blades are made of imported steel with high quality for cleaner shave with a comfortable, and pressure-relieving design.
