Oral-B Pro 3 3000 Review

Oral-B Pro 3 3000 Review 2

Our Verdict

It is slim, lightweight, comfortable to hold, offers several cleaning modes and leaves your mouth feeling lovely and clean.

It also has a better battery life than it once did.

There is not really much to fault here.

However, in our opinion better value is achieved by opting for the Oral-B Pro 2 2500, whilst more features are gained in the Smart 5.

Pros

  • Slim handled brush with good grip
  • 2 week battery life
  • Pressure sensor — be alerted when brushing too hard

Cons

  • Inclusion of a sensitive brush head would have been good
  • Better value options exist (see other choices)

Xiaomi Mi Electric Toothbrush Review

Xiaomi Mi Electric Toothbrush Review 3

Our Verdict

The Mi electric toothbrush is far from a bad toothbrush and is certainly not bad value.

But, it isn’t as great.

Having spent several weeks testing it, I prefer the alternatives.

The Bluetooth connectivity and data transfer can be buggy and the data received from the brush isn’t all that useful.

It also lacks some of the added value that I have come to expect of the far eastern brands, that often challenge the dominant brands.

Pros

  • Minimalist design
  • Good cleaning action
  • Bluetooth connectivity for pairing to smartphone
  • Cleaning mode customisation via an app

Cons

  • Not easy to tell which cleaning mode is selected
  • App and tracking data are not great
  • Battery life worse than expected
  • Better value options exist (see other choices)

Foreo ISSA Hybrid Review

Foreo ISSA Hybrid Review 5

Editor’s Note

We have now completed our Foreo ISSA 2 Review, which is the newer version of the Foreo ISSA / ISSA Hybrid. Whereas we rate the ISSA 2 3/5, we rate the original ISSA 4/5 and that remains our recommended choice at the moment.

Our Verdict

It is an expensive toothbrush considering what it offers.

There is a uniqueness and feeling of quality to the product.

For the vast majority, significantly more value will be gained by going for a different electric toothbrush.

Pros

  • Ergonomic and unique design
  • Made from silicone
  • 8 adjustable intensity settings
  • Up to 6 months battery life

Cons

  • Expensive compared to a similarly featured brush
  • Design will not be for everyone
  • Unique design

Philips Sonicare DailyClean 1100 Review 7

Our Verdict

A satisfactory toothbrush that performs the basic function.

The brush appears to have been made to a price and as such it has lost some of the appeals that are typical of a Sonicare toothbrush.

Pros

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Built-in timer and pacer
  • Angled brush head
  • Price

Cons

  • Larger in hand than most other Sonicare models
  • No battery status/charge icon

Foreo ISSA 2 Review

Foreo ISSA 2 Review 8

Our Verdict

It is very difficult to justify the price tag of the ISSA 2.

The brush is a little unique, the silicon bristles are soft on the teeth and gums.

It makes a statement and it does look good and feel good in hand.

However, other brushes like the Oral-B Pro 2 2500 represent much better value for money.

Pros

  • Ergonomic and unique design
  • Made from silicone
  • 16 adjustable intensity settings
  • Up to 1 years battery life

Cons

  • Expensive compared to a similarly featured brush
  • Design will not be for everyone

Oral-B Genius 8000 Review

Oral-B Genius 8000 Review

Our Verdict

A very capable electric toothbrush that does a superb job of cleaning the teeth, whilst being supplied with value added extras.

For those wanting a feature rich and capable brush, go for the Genius X instead.

If you want something more cost effective, consider the Pro 2 2500.

Pros

  • 5 different cleaning modes
  • Good box contents including travel case
  • Pressure sensor – be alerted when brushing too hard
  • Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with smartphone app to track cleaning performance
  • Position detection – clever concept for real-time tracking

Cons

  • 4 cleaning mode icons, but 5 cleaning modes
  • Position detection – requires habit change to use
  • Smartphone holder – clunky option most won’t want in bathroom
  • Potentially better value options exist (see other choices)

Oral-B Smart 4 4000 Review

Oral-B Smart 4 4000 Review

Our Verdict

There is no denying that the Smart 4 4000 cleans the teeth and mouth well.  It offers a pretty decent battery life, whilst also looking fairly good and feeling solid and slim in hand.

At the time of writing it is the best electric toothbrush to offer Bluetooth connectivity and for that it deserves some credit.

But, the box contents lacks, there should be some form of smartphone stand included and ideally a travel case.

Even if this added £10 to the price it would have rounded off the package and made this a really solid buy. A better choice would be the Smart 5 5000, in our opinion.

Pros

  • Slim handled brush with good grip
  • 2 week battery life
  • Pressure sensor — be alerted when brushing too hard
  • Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with smartphone app

Cons

  • Box contents lacks a little
  • Not easy to tell which cleaning mode is selected
  • No dedicated cleaning mode control button
  • Better value options exist (see other choices)

Our Verdict

If you are looking for a cheap but reliable electric toothbrush that does a good job of cleaning your teeth, then the CleanCare+ has that box ticked.

It is a bit thick and heavy and you don’t need to spend much more to get a slimmer and lighter model with a better battery life.

  • 1 cleaning mode

Cons

  • Design, sub par with many other models

Pros

Our Verdict

Like any Sonicare toothbrush, it cleans the teeth really well.

Technically it is a solid choice, as it has all the things you need, plus a bit more.

The problem is though, just how many people need or want these extra features and are they prepared to pay for them?

You can get better value from the lesser featured Sonicare 4300.

Pros

  • 3 cleaning modes
  • BrushSync technology — reminder when brush heads need replacing

Philips Sonicare 5 Series Gum Health Review

Sonicare Series 5 Review

Our Verdict

The 5 Series is a great toothbrush. It cleans the teeth and gums really well.

The battery life is top notch, the build quality is superb and built-in features like the timer, pacer and EasyStart are highly regarded.

The 5 Series lacks a decent box contents and the price is rarely favourable.

It is good value at £50 or less. If prices are higher I strongly encourage you to consider the alternatives, you may just get a bit more bang for your buck.

Pros

  • 2 cleaning modes
  • 3 different brushing intensities
  • Built-in timer
  • Long battery life
  • Quality materials

Cons

  • No pressure sensor to alert you when brushing too hard

Oral-B Pro 6500 Review

Editor’s Note

The Oral-B Pro 6500 is still a current model being sold by major retailers, but it has technically been replaced with the Smart 6 6000 (view on Amazon).

The Smart 6 offers a refreshed design, improved battery life and features.

Our Verdict

The Pro 6500 provides a very good clean of the teeth and has a number of features that make this a pleasure to use, whilst encouraging better oral health.

The box contents is good too.

The Bluetooth function works, but requires dedication from the user to gain value from it.

Oral-B Teen Review 19

Our Verdict

A slim handled toothbrush that cleans the teeth really well.

It is a ‘smart’ toothbrush, which isn’t necessary or required by all., but, at the time of review, this is the best value Bluetooth enabled toothbrushes available today, all brands considered.

Including a travel case would be have been nice, but considering the audience.

Teen’s and adults alike can gain a lot from this electric toothbrush. If you make full use of what it offers you will have healthier teeth and gums.

Pros

  • Better value alternative to almost identical Smart 4 4000
  • Slim handled brush with good grip with interesting design

  • Pressure sensor – be alerted when brushing too hard
  • Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with smartphone app

Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Review

Editor’s Note

The images used in this review are of the USA variant of the Sonic-Fusion. The images show a black with copper coloured variant of the device, which is not currently available in the UK. Aside from the colour and plug all other elements are the same.

Our Verdict

As a concept idea, this is a great idea.

However, sadly the actual product fails to deliver.

You are best buying a separate water flosser and electric toothbrush rather than this combo option.

Pros

  • Stylish design
  • Toothbrush and water flosser
  • Built-in timer
  • 10 pressure settings

Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Review

Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Review

Our Verdict

The Arm & Hammer Spinbrush provides a more consistent power delivery and offers a clean that will exceed that experienced by most people using a manual brush.

Being powered by conventional AA batteries is a real win should you be away from fixed power for a long time or simply do not want the hassle of having a charging dock.

However, the brush has too many weaknesses to make this a viable alternative to the more expensive, but better engineered electric brushes from brands such as Braun and Philips if you intend to use it on a daily basis.

  • Removable AA batteries

Oral-B Pro 2 2500 Review 56

Our Verdict

Superb, excellent, brilliant are all words that can be used to describe the Oral-B Pro 2 2500.

Compared to last year’s model only the battery life (and the name) has changed.  It now lasts twice as long and the 16 day battery life is admirable.

It is slim, comfortable in hand and provides a good clean —  there is little to dislike or complain about this brush. It has all you need of an electric toothbrush and will do you proud.

Pros

  • Slim handled brush with good grip
  • Built-in timer
  • 2 week battery life
  • Pressure sensor – be alerted when brushing too hard
  • Travel case included

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Review

philips sonicare diamond clean review

Our Verdict

The DiamondClean is a smart looking toothbrush that cleans the teeth really well.

The additional cleaning modes and in case charging are particularly appealing.

Other models now offer better value for most.

Pros

  • Stylish, minimal design available in 5 colour options
  • 3 brush heads included in the box
  • 3 solid weeks of battery life
  • Travel case that supports in case charging

Cons

  • No pressure sensor to alert you if brushing too hard
  • Design is such that it lacks some practical grips

Oral-B Pro 650 Review

Oral-B Pro 650 Review

Editor’s Note

Since this review was created, the box contents has altered.

In almost all circumstances the Pro 650 is supplied with a tube of toothpaste, rather than the travel case mentioned and shown in this review.

The brush has not changed, just the included box contents.

If you particularly want a travel case, the Oral-B Pro 680 comes with a case included.

Our Verdict

A good electric toothbrush, it does what you need and expect.

For just a few pounds more, you can get a better value product, such as the Oral-B Pro 2 2500.

Pros

  • Slim handled brush with good grip
  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Good value

Cons

  • Battery life is just 7 days
  • No pressure sensor to alert when brushing too hard

Our Verdict

A satisfactory toothbrush.

It is perfectly usable, but brushes like the Oral-B Pro 2 2500 are much more appealing.

Pros

  • 5 cleaning modes
  • Built-in timer
  • Automatic power off

Our Verdict

The 150 is a basic electric toothbrush.

It does not compete in any significant way in my mind with other brushes that have a built-in battery.

However, rating it on its own merit and in comparison to other brushes of this ilk then its is to be well regarded.

Pros

  • Removable batteries
  • Built-in timer
  • Slim and lightweight
  • Price

Cons

  • Lacks some desirable features
  • No 30 second timer/pacer

Fairywill FW-917 Review

Fairywill Toothbrush Review

Editor’s Note

October 2019: The FW-917 covered in this review, has been discontinued by Fairywill.  The company still offer a range of great value toothbrushes.  The FW-507 (view on Amazon) is the logical replacement within the Fairywill range. We do strongly advise considering the Oral-B Pro 2 2500.

Please be aware this review looks at just one electric toothbrush from Fairywill, the FW-917.

They do have a number of other models, that offer different cleaning modes, features and box contents. At this time we have not completed separate reviews of these other models.

There are similarities across these models, but the naming convention for these brushes is complicated, so be sure to take care in picking the right one for you.

Whilst we have yet to review all the models independently, by reading this review you may pick up some information and insight that might apply to those other models and allow you to make a more informed purchasing decision.

You can view the Fairywill range here on Amazon.

Our Verdict

The Fairywill FW-917 is a toothbrush that represents absolutely excellent value for money.

It does not feel the most premium, but it offers what you need including a brilliant battery life.

Pros

  • Slim and lightweight
  • 3 cleaning modes
  • Built-in timer and pacer
  • Up to a month’s battery life
  • Box contents is good

Cons

  • Feels a little cheap
  • As a new and unknown brand reliability and support concerns

Oral-B Pro 600 Review

Oral-B Pro 600 Review

Our Verdict

It is cheap, cheerful and functional.

It may sound like there are sacrifices but the performance and build quality are as good as any brush three times the price.

There is no arguing that this is a good electric toothbrush for the majority and you are not wasting money if you buy one.

However, as good as it is, the Oral-B Pro 2 2500 is, for many a better buy.

The Oral-B Pro 2 2500 is pricier it is, but it brings more cleaning power, double the battery life, extra cleaning modes and a pressure sensor.

Pros

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Built-in timer
  • Slim handle

Cons

  • Only a 7 day battery life
  • Limited box contents
  • Better value options exist (see other choices)

Oral-B Genius 9000 Review

Oral-B Genius 9000 Review 66

Our Verdict

The Genius 9000 represents a blend of features and innovation for the price. There is no denying that it is a very capable electric toothbrush.

It offers more than the average user needs and unless you will use all the tech, better value can be achieved from alternative models.

If you want smart technology it has it, but for most, better value will be achieved through other models.

If you want the best Oral-B toothbrush, consider the Genius X that essentially replaces the 9000.

Pros

  • Cleaning performance
  • Built-in timer and pacer
  • Multiple cleaning modes
  • Pressure sensor – be alerted when brushing too hard
  • Smart travel case – stylish & functional protection
  • Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with a smartphone via an app
  • Position detection – clever concept for real-time tracking
  • Choice of brush handle colours

Cons

  • 5 cleaning mode icons, but 6 cleaning modes
  • Position detection – requires habit change to use
  • Smartphone holder – clunky option most won’t want in the bathroom
  • Better value options (see other choices)

Philips Sonicare ExpertClean Review

Philips Sonicare ExpertClean

Our Verdict

The Sonicare ExpertClean is an excellent electric toothbrush.

There are many desirable features. The brush head replacement reminder system and the in-case charging, are just 2 of many that this brush others.

The ExpertClean, unfortunately, falls a fraction short on the Bluetooth functionality. It does not offer true real-time tracking as other Sonicare models do.

The likes of the DiamondClean Smart from Sonicare and Oral-B Genius X are arguably more rounded products.

Pros

  • Design and materials
  • Multiple cleaning modes
  • Built-in timer and pacer
  • Built-in pressure sensor
  • Brush head replacement reminder system
  • Battery life
  • Charging travel case

Colgate ProClinical 250R Review

Colgate ProClincial 250R

Our Verdict

The Colgate ProClincial 250R is a smart and strong performing electric toothbrush that delivers value for money.

A replacement to the 250+, the 250R has a refreshed design. It looks a little more stylish than some of the competition, but sadly this new model has worse battery life and loses the very handy travel cap/protective case that used to come supplied with 250+.

Pros

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Slim and lightweight
  • Stylish design
  • Built-in timer
  • Automatic power off
  • Price

Cons

  • No travel cap provided

Solimo Sonic Review 69

Our Verdict

Simple and effective is the best way that I can describe the Solimo Sonic electric toothbrush.

It hasn’t been designed to reinvent the toothbrush, just offer the desireable features at an affordable price. And it does just that.

For the price, it is a really good toothbrush that deserves serious consideration if you have no particular desire to own a toothbrush from a brand leader.

Pros

  • Grippy handle
  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Built-in timer and pacer
  • Price

Cons

Our Verdict

  • 2 brush heads provided

Oral-B Genius X Review

Oral-B Genius X Review

Our Verdict

The Oral-B Genius X is an extremely good electric toothbrush.

It looks the part, feels solid in the hand and cleans the teeth really well.

The Genius X demonstrates how technology can be used effectively, to help you improve and ultimately achieve the best oral health care standards. As a result, at your next dental checkup, you should gain the praise of your dentist.

If you desire to own one of the smartest and top performing brushes on the market today then this is certainly one of the best options.

However, the Genius X is not perfect in my opinion and there is potential for improvement.

The brush lacks the finer details and quality that come with the likes of the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart and ExpertClean toothbrushes for example.

The charging travel case for the Genius is useful, but the Sonicare implementation is considerably more convenient to use.

I do also think that there is scope for smarter graphics and diagrams in the app to enhance the way that it educates you about the areas of the teeth you have and have not brushed.

The Genius X gets my vote of confidence for sure, but in reality, it is a more feature-rich and expensive toothbrush than you necessarily need. There are cheaper brushes that clean the teeth just as well. You pay a premium for the added features and box contents it comes with.

Pros

  • Cleaning action
  • Built-in timer and pacer
  • Pressure sensor
  • Design
  • Bluetooth & AI technology

Cons

  • Box contents
  • Travel case
  • Cleaning mode icons
  • Bluetooth & AI technology

Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300 Review

Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300 Review 77

Our Verdict

The Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300 is a very good electric toothbrush, featuring Sonciare’s BrushSync reminder technology.

The built-in timer and pacer are very welcomed, as are the automatic power off and EasyStart technologies.

Simplicity comes in the form of just 1 cleaning mode, with the option of changing the cleaning intensity. And the battery life is fantastic.

Sadly the overriding negative is the price — there are alternatives that could be considered within or below this price range.

Pros

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Built-in timer
  • Travel case included
  • BrushSync technology – reminder when brush heads need replacing
  • Pressure sensor
  • Long battery life

Cons

  • Box contents – an extra brush head would be nice

Oral-B Pro 2 2000 / 2900 Review

Oral-B Pro 2 2000 / 2900 Review 78

Our Verdict

The Oral-B Pro 2 2000* is the updated version of the previously popular Pro 2000.

It might only have been an improvement in battery life, but in truth, it was overdue and Oral-B had managed to offer just 7 days battery life for too long.  They were often saved by their price.

A slim profile that looks smart and feels good in the hand, the 2 2000 doesn’t try to challenge with innovations like premium models do. Instead, it is focused on offering a good quality clean at a reasonable price.

It is a great choice for your first electric toothbrush. That said, the Pro 2 2500, comes with a travel case and is often as cheap, if not cheaper than the 2000.

* There are several variants of this brush; the 2000n, 2000w, 2000s and 2900 to name but a few. This review is applicable to all of them. 

Pros

  • Slim handled brush with good grip
  • 2 week battery life
  • Built-in timer
  • Pressure sensor – be alerted when brushing too hard

Cons

  • A basic box contents
  • Battery status – More feedback would be good
  • Pro 2 2500 is often better value (learn more)

Colgate Connect E1 Review

Colgate Connect E1 Review - Header Image

Our Verdict

The Colgate Connect E1 is a smart electric toothbrush that aims to use Artificial Intelligence to improve your brushing habits.

However, whilst the brush works, the unreliable app and other annoyances are showstoppers at present.

The E1 is not representative of Colgate’s usual high standards. Conceptually this brush is the future, but sadly in practice, it is a step back.

Pros

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Small brush head
  • Slim & lightweight design
  • 2 week battery life
  • Smartphone app for tracking cleaning performance
  • Multiple use profiles in app

Cons

  • Buggy & unreliable app

Philips Sonicare 2 Series Review

Our Verdict

On the whole, the Sonicare 2 Series is far from a bad brush.

It cleans well, has the basic functions you need and a battery life that is more than satisfactory.  Hey, it even comes with a battery status icon that some brushes simply don’t.

What lets the 2 Series down is the price.  It is just too expensive to really be considered justifiable against other brushes available today.

Spend a fraction more and you get the much better ProtectiveClean 4300.

Pros

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Built-in timer
  • Automatic power off

Cons

  • Older battery technology used
  • No pressure sensor to alert you when brushing to hard
  • Better value options exist (see other choices)

Fairywill FW-507 Review

Fairywill FW-507 Review 80

Our Verdict

The materials and overall finish make it look and feel a little ‘cheap’ in comparison to those brushes made by arguably more reputable and household name brands.

However, the low price is what really makes this toothbrush stand out.

This is without a doubt excellent value for money.  You will be hard pushed to get more features and performance for less.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • 5 cleaning modes
  • Built-in timer and pacer
  • Long battery life
  • Box contents
  • Price

Cons

  • No pressure sensor
  • Charging port
  • Quality
  • Lesser known brand

Philips Sonicare FlexCare Review

Sonicare FlexCare Review

Editor’s Note

The naming system to Sonicare brushes can be confusing at the best of times, but in this instance it is particularly confusing.

The brushes we are referring to in this review are the FlexCare range. However, there is also a FlexCare+, which we have reviewed here.

In the Amazon product description for the FlexCare, Amazon refer to this as the FlexCare+, but as far as we can tell — going by Sonicare’s listings on their own site — that is a mistake; it should be called the FlexCare. It is listed as the FlexCare in the Amazon product title – it is just the description and comparison table that are incorrect.

Our Verdict

A solid toothbrush that would serve you very well.

However, it has a slightly dated design and lacks a certain wow factor.  There are other brushes, like the 4300 ProetectiveClean that sacrifice features but are just as powerful and better value.

Pros

  • Multiple cleaning modes
  • Built in timer
  • Long battery life
  • Travel case included

Cons

  • Design looks a little dated in comparison to alternative
  • No pressure sensor built in to tell you when you are brushing to hard
  • Better value options exist (see other choices)

Oral-B Vitality / Vitality Plus Review

Oral-B Vitality

Editor’s Note

Since this review’s original publication, Oral-B has updated the Vitality (in 2018).

This review has therefore been updated to reflect our thoughts on the ‘newer’ 2018 model.

The differences compared to the previous model of the same name, are relatively subtle.

We have included information on the differences, along with images of the older model, in the ‘Variants of this brush‘ section of the review.

Some retailers still stock the older model, so we wish for you to be aware of the differences.

This review also encompasses the Oral-B Vitality Pro, which is only different to the Vitality in terms of colour, and the fact that an extra brush head comes in the box with it. We explain this in further detail here.

Our Verdict

A good choice if you are on a budget.

The Oral-B Vitality will provide benefits over a manual toothbrush.

However, investing a little extra might well be worthwhile.

Pros

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • Built-in timer
  • A small round brush head
  • Grip on handle

Cons
