This baby gets nose hair, under-nose hair (which I have a hard time shaving), ear hair, does a good dry, close shave, and also has attachments for beard trimming.
I primarily use it to keep my neckbeard shaved on any day I leave the house. I let my facial hair grow out under my mask for about a week, and then trim it with the electric razor before a nice close straight razor shave.
It looks like you just dove straight into dry beard with the trimmer. I’d recommend against using an electric for anything other than trimming down a massive bush before using a razor for for the kill, or fine line work; but at the minimum I would recommend against using one of those with spinning blades like the Phillips you mentioned. I’ve used this one for about 5 years now and even if you chose to use it for 100% of your shaving, you should still get better results than the current one you are using.
What is your prep like? Are you using any kind of product pre or post shave besides a standard alcohol aftershave?
