Oral B electric toothbrushes are much better than the Phillips ones I find.


No they're not.

I've been using this particular toothbrush and I had Oral B one before. It cleans youe teeth slightly better, hold charge much better even after 2 years of use, its much more durable (looks nearly new if cleaned properly). Downside is replacement heads are expensive but if you cam afford it its better choice
Which? Voted Phillips better than Oral B ones

I have an oral b one since 2012 and now the battery doesn't hold its charge

Phillips is getting my custom this time
My votes with Phillips..moved away from oral b years ago.

Oh yes they are (according to my dentist and hygenist).

Anybody have one of these or similar and one of the more expensive sonicare brushes? If so, is the difference mainly with the wireless charging, lack of a case and different cleaning modes or is the cleaning performance very different too?

Btw, I would vote Philips over oral b, by some distance.I've had both.
Do you have any recommendation for the replacement head? There are few type and i am confused which to get.

I have the uber expensive one. Mine has a few extra functions, but the brush heads are exactly the same and the rest is just packaging. If I was to buy again I would get this one.

It's illegal to fit 240v sockets in a bathroom, so products intended for use in that environment tend to use 2 pin plugs fitting the sockets available to the vast majority.

Fortunately a cheap adapter can be ordered in as much time as it takes to leave a disparaging comment on a deals site.

Actually,NO it's the exact opposite.
Philips Sonicare is NO1 recommended and seller in the US..
Oral-B just has cheaper models in general and been marketed more extensively in UK hence why it's more common.
Oral-B has very poor charge time and last few days only,Philips lasts 3 weeks easily and takes just 4 hours to charge vs whopping 48 hours on Oral-B.
I have both, start with Oral-B Pro 3000 and was feud with poor battery and crazy long charge time.so switched to Philips,way better.
this is so cheap and a fantastic deal, these were £50ish on amazon and still are at least £45 everywhere else.
If you don't want to charge it in the bathroom or don't have a 2 pin socket then just fit a 13a plug rather than messing around with an adapter

This has just convinced me to make the jump... None of our bathrooms have a socket, so you need to plug it in elsewhere and it takes over 24 hours for a full charge. Oral Bs are clearly designed to be plugged in as soon as you've finished using them which makes the charging times a non-issue for some, but for me it's a big one...

Cheers OP!
Oral-b toothbrushes need charging after every use, so it's just hassle if you don't have a shaver socket in your bathroom....so for that reason alone, the Philips is better as it can go weeks without needing charging, and still runs at pretty much full power.

Yeah, that's my other issue with oral b - you can get maybe 2 weeks between charging if you're lucky, but after a few days there's a noticeable drop in power. If you want to keep it at peak performance you need to constantly top up the charge. Looking forward to getting rid of mine now!

I tried an Oral B (high end) after my last Sonicare wore out - couldn't agree with you - very noise, uncomforatble and I just didn't feel my teeth were as clean after. Personal preference really.
Obviously there is personal choice, my dentist also recommends the oral B brush, its action gets into the gums a lot easier than the Philips one.
I had 3 of the cheeper oralB brushes in the past, usually the battery starts giving up after 2 years, finally switched to a £15 Phillips and I love it.

It always makes me laugh when people complain about the 2 pin charger (in fact I saw someone return a toothbrush too Boots for that reason). I don't know any toothbrushes with 3 pin chargers.
I tend to find that's how much they're actually worth the thirty pounds mark. the higher pretend rrp never sells at that price. I know as inventory on handset proves it at my work.
Another issue and problem with Oral-B is that between charges the power drops even after couple of uses, meaning the motor spins slower with less power after each use,this obviously effects cleaning performance.
have no doubt Sonicare is the superior technology.
Oral-B is only acceptable if it's 24/7 put on charge, but many people don't have power ticket in their bathrooms.

I've had 2 Sonicare brushes and both failed on me. The first was the HX6731 I got from John Lewis, after about a year stopped holding charge. This was replaced within warranty by JL with the HX8910, which lost power in it's motor for some reason and wouldn't spin. JL refused replacement.

well pretty much all dentists in USA recommend Sonicare over Oral-B and it's well known USA has much higher standard and quality of dentistry.
you can even say people over there have MUCH better teeth than people in this country..so..

Haha, I am not sure the USA has a higher level of dental care, their medical care is good for some, terrible for a lot.

Even more fortunately, you can order something just as good that is ready to go straight out of the box in even less time than it takes to order this and a cheap adaptor

Your opinion is at odds with the description, which clearly states that it comes with a 2-pin plug and requires an adaptor.
