Introduction of Braun Series 6 6020s

There are several models in Braun Series 6 lineup, which include 6020s, 6072cc, 6075cc and 6090cc. Braun Series 6 6020s is the less expensive in this lineup and the only model that does not come with SmartCare Centre (self-cleaning and charging station). This model cost below $100, and the other three models cost more than $100.

Generally speaking, all four models use the same design, motor, battery and features SensoFlex foil shaver for people with sensitive skin. The difference with other Braun Series 6 models are the attachment and additional kit they provided.

Comparison of Braun Series 6 6020s and Braun Series 5 5020s

As you can see on the comparison table for the Braun Series 6, all four models are identical. The. The only difference is the number of the trimmer and the SmartCare Centre included with the main shaver unit. In the below section, I will compare the Braun Series 6 6020s and Braun Series 5 5020s.

At times, I found that Braun Series 6 6020s is cheaper than the Braun Series 5 5020s or Braun Series 5 5018s due to some promotion, but Series 5 should be slightly cheaper during the usual time. The main difference features for both models are the SensoFlex functions. As we have mentioned above, only Braun Series 6 is equipped with the SensoFlex function.

1. Foil Shaver Head

Series 5 and Series 6 models are designed with foil shaver and not the regular rotary shaver. Braun Series 5 5020s are marketed on Amazon using flexible heads using a spring-loaded mechanism. Both mechanisms, in my opinion, is quite similar, but for Series 6 6020s, it is an improved version on flexible heads specifically designed to minimize skin irritation for sensitive skin.

 While Braun Series 6 6020s is using the trademark SensoFlex functions to cater for men with sensitive skin.

I am confused because both models are recommended to purchase the head shaver 53B replacement if you need to change the head shaver. Usually, you will need to change the foil shaver 12 to 18 months after purchase. Logically, if you are using the same foil shaver head for both models, you can conclude that both factory foil shaver is precisely the same.

Braun is just using the branding of the technology as a marketing strategy, and in my opinion, both models are using the same foil shaver.

2. Weight

Braun Series 6 6020s is slightly weighed more, around 0.09 pounds, compared to Braun Series 5 5020s which is unnoticeable. Generally speaking, Braun shavers are lightweight and easy to hold, making them a favorite among users. Less weight means more ergonomic and easy to handle, even for senior users.

3. Battery

Both Braun Series 6 6020s and Braun Series 5 5020s use the same battery that can last up to 50 minutes on one charge and capable of quick-charge for 5 minutes to use for one shaving session.

4. Attachments

Braun Series 6 6020s comes with a precision trimmer and travel case. On the other hand, Braun Series 5 5020s features a precision trimmer and beard trimmer (3 mm, 7 mm). It is evident here that for whoever has a beard, Braun Series 5 5020s is preferable, and Braun Series 6 6020s is more suitable for those having sensitive skin and require close shave regularly.

Braun Series 6 6020s Review

Braun Series 6 6020s is the cheapest option you can purchase among the Braun Series 6 models. It cost almost the same as the Braun Series 5 5020s and have the same features except for some attachments that I have mentioned above. Let’s go into what Braun Series 6 6020s can offer you.

2. Foil Shaver Head and Blades

Braun Series 6 6020s features a foil shaver with SensoFlex technology designed for people with sensitive skin. The design is a little different, with a trimmer sandwiched between the SensoFoil Blades. When comparing the blades to Braun Series 5 5018s, you’ll notice that the design and mechanism are identical. As a result, you can use the Braun Series 5 53B shaver head replacement, which you can buy online.

The blades at the top and bottom of the image are called SensoFoil blades, and they include 899 holes capable of shaving at an incredible 0.058 mm. It gives you the same close shave as a traditional razor blade while also saving you time daily. Another type of blade, the ActiLift Trimmer, may be seen in the middle. The trimmer’s main job is to catch and shave flat-lying hair and hair that grows in diverse directions. You may get a very close shave, and fewer skipped hair while shaving with this shaver head.

SensoFlex working principle is to minimize pressure on the skin during shaving, thus giving comfort and less irritation while shaving as close as possible. The flexible spring-loaded blades are the secret to Sensoflex. The technology is dermatologically tested and successful in reducing irritation among people with sensitive skin.

3. EasyClick Attachment Mechanism

Braun Series 6 6020s comes with a precision trimmer capable of trimming up to 0.5mm and suitable for trimming sideburns and mustache.

You must first pop off the shaver head by pulling upwards before using the precision trimmer head. Then, with the precision trimmer, gently press on the shaver head until you hear a “click.” You may now cut your sideburns or moustache with the precision trimmer.

4. Battery and Charging

This shaver is equipped with the same Lithium-ion battery as other Braun shavers. One full charge can give you about 50 minutes of shaving time. Ordinary people take around 5 minutes to shave daily, so you can use up the shaver to 10 to 11 days before you need to charge it again. This model also comes with the QuickCharge function to give you one shaving session on a 5-minute rapid charging zero battery. It might come in handy when you are rushing and forget to charge your shaver.

Cleaning with the brush provided need to be done to make sure the shaver can work flawlessly and efficiently.

Please be reminded that do not brush the foils shaver blades as the brush can get between the blades and got stuck. The brush hair is much thicker and more rigid than human hair, so if the brush hair gets into the blades, it can result in dull blades.
