Features and technology

The S3 3080s makes use of one of Braun's most advanced and innovative features - the MicroComb Technology that catches and feeds more hair into the cutting parts. This ensures greater skin comfort and you get better results even on 3-day beards.

Just like other shavers from Braun, this one also uses SensoFoil for an efficient shave. The cutting elements are optimised to give a close shave with optimum skin comfort. One of the key features of this model is the 'Triple action cutting system'. It has twin foils and an integrated middle trimmer which allows you to shave progressively closer. The middle trimmer helps to lift and cut hair that is lying flat. A simple switch on the shaver will temporarily retract one of the foils thus allowing you to achieve a precise and perfect shave.

The shaver adapts excellently to the contours of the face cutting both long and short hair with ease. The precision mode makes shaving the jawline and areas under the nose more easy. The contour adaptability along with the triple action cutting system offers a truly close shave.

As you would have guessed from the name, the S3 3080s is a wet and dry shaver. You can use it in the shower with shaving foam or gel. Cleaning the shaver is also easy as it is 100% washable. Teh shaver is totally waterproof making it very easy to clean. And this model comes with a carry case which is again a welcome addition. The earlier models of Braun that Mr.H has owned did not come with a carry case and it was always a concern carrying the shaver while travelling. Although the shavers are well built and would not have been damaged while travelling, it does make a difference when it has a secure travel case of its own.

Battery and charging

The shaver charges completely in an hour and offers 45 minutes use once fully charged (which would be 3-4 shaves; dependant on the hair thickness and growth). There is a LED battery charge indicator which alerts you to the amoutn of charge remaining. If you are short of time or if you have forgotten to charge the shaver, you can do a quick 5 minute recharge which will last for 1 shave. This is very handy feature, one that Mr.H liked.



Results

As someone who has sensitive facial skin, Mr.H faced no irritation with this shaver. According to him the S3 3080s offers a quick, comfortable and close shave. It is an improvement over the older models from Braun. The shaver looks good, is well-built, feels comfortable in the hand and most importantly offers a good, clean shave. No nicks, no irritation. So, it gets thumbs-up from him.
