That’s why the Braun Series 7 7893s may be a great production to achieve customer’s satisfaction full filling all the premium facilities except automatic cleaning and charging. So, let’s check if the features and specifications match your desired shaving need and it becomes your selection.
What is in the Box?

4 Cutting Elements
The Braun 7893s electric shaver has a specialized number of elements in shaver head (3 cutting elements and 1 skin guard).
That elements work together to capture more hairs in one stroke and deliver a thorough clean result what others do in two.
Intelligent Sonic and Autosense Technology
Like other Series 7 shavers, the Braun 7893s also comes with intelligent sonic technology which produces 10,000 micro-vibrations. T
The 10,000 micro–vibrations and the responsive autosense motor automatically adapt to the features of your face and capture more hair in every stroke, even on dense beards.
8-D Contour Adaptation
The key feature of Braun series 7 is 8 direction flexible head and floating shaving elements.
The ultra flexible shaving head is able to handle the problematic areas of the chin and upper neck.
It is very common in the lower quality shavers to get nicks and cuts in these areas, but you only notice the gentle hum of the motor – no nicks, cuts or scratches with the Braun Series 7 7893s shaver.
5 Turbo/ Sensitive Modes
Different skin types of different people with different hair growing out of it.
Managing to design a device that works equally well on all kinds of faces is a very demanding task.
But Braun Series 7 7893 has 5 personalized shaving modes allow you to adjust the power to your personal skin type and shaving style.
Wet and Dry
The Braun Series 7 7893s is a smart electric shaver designed to shave dry or with water, foam, gel and in the shower for a refreshing smooth skin experience.
This feature makes the model more advanced than the older ones.
Braun 7893s electric shaver is 100% waterproof up to 5 meters.
So, you can easily clean your shaver with running water and no damage is likely to be caused by water.
Precision Shaving Head
The precision shaving head delivers efficient shave in every stroke and each of the three shaving heads can pivot left and right.
This allows you to reach any difficult areas and remain in contact with your skin.
To provide a close shave the pivoting head and block work together.
There is a head lock switch to lock the shaver head into a single position.
The Braun Series 7 shavers come with a pop-up trimmer for the basic trimming of sideburns and stubborn flat-lying hairs and it does no harm the skin.
At the beginning of your shave, trim those stubborn hairs that lie flat against your neck.
But it is not a complete trimming solution – you can’t use it for your facial hair down to stubble or to do fine detailing work.
Battery life and charging
All the series 7 electric shavers are powered by lithium-ion battery.
And a lithium-ion battery can deliver their full rated capacity, even at high currents.
The Braun 7893s is not different and the lithium-ion battery of Braun Series 7 7893s delivers 50minues of running juice (cordless) and takes about an hour to be fully charged.
When you charge the shaver with of course you have to use the included special cord.
There is a premium display which indicates the remaining battery with 3 different steps –
- When the shaver is being charged or turned on, the green charging light blinks and show the charge status of the battery.
- After fully charging the battery, all the lights shine constantly.
- After completing the charging, the shaver switches to the stand-by-mode: the display switches off.
Low charge light:
- The red low-charge light flashes when the battery is running low and then you can shave 2 to 3 times with that little charge and you need to recharge the device.
Built quality is one of the most important matters to consider while buying an electric shaver.
The full body of Braun 7893s is made with metal and high-quality chrome plastic.
The Braun series 7 7893 electric shaver is dominated by a black rubber and the rubber makes the shaver easy to grasp when your hand is covered in shaving foam or wet.
Just below the power button, there are two silver semi-circles marked with a ‘’+’’ and ‘’-minus’’ for different speed settings from sensitive to intensive.
Further down the handle, just below the Braun logo, there is a small little indentation, it is the reset button.
After 18 months of use, ‘’change shaver head’’ logo will appear on the indicator screen.
The circle LCD screen is placed at the base of the shaver body.
A pop-up-trimmer is for goatee, mustache or sideburns.
The horizontal design makes it easier to see the area you are shaving but the trimmer’s performance is not like the professional trimmers.
There is no cleaning station with this package. So you have to clean it manually.
The shaver head is made up of three individual parts and they have different names.
#Active lift trimmer:
this part is for lifting and cutting the flat laying hairs and this part is placed in the middle of the three parts.
the two outer foil guards provide you a close and comfortable shave.
The manufacturer has deliberately made The Braun 7893s shaver without travel lock.
So, it will be a little risky to carry it while traveling because suddenly the power button can be turned ON.
It will not be a problem if you carry the shaver carefully.
My Shaving Experience
Undoubtedly, this shaver is one of the best choices for a close shave and it also depends on the experience of shaving well.
After the shaving, it does not leave rash sensation on my skin.
For the first time, the shaver did not produce satisfactory results in some areas like – my under the chest and around the throat is painful.
But after getting used to the shaver, I do not feel that problem at all.
After a long time shaving, the foils get a little hot but it does not matter to me.
Without micro-vibration I could not feel any difference in shaving performance between Braun Series 7 and Braun series 5.
Overall, the shaving performance is not much better while comparing with upper qualities like Series 9.
But as a middle-range shaver, it delivers premium shaves with skin comfort.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Proper cleaning and maintenance will keep your shaver working for a long time. Since the shaver does not come with cleaning dock, we need to clean it manually.
Manual cleaning is not tough as the shaver is 100% waterproof. Let’s know how to clean the Braun series 7 7893s electric shaver easily and quickly.
- 1stly, turn on the shaver and rinse the shaver head under running hot water to remove the hair and dead skin cells from the shaver.
- Hold the shaver under the running water unlit all residues and foam removes.
- For the sake of hygiene, you can use liquid soap.
- Let the shaver run for a few more seconds and next switch off the shaver. And then remove the foil & cutter cassette pressing the release button.
- Let the foil and cutter cassette dry.
- You cannot use the shaver until it dries fully.
- If you regularly clean the shaver under running water, then once a week you have to apply a drop of light machine oil (not included) on top of the Foil & cuter cassette and the pop up trimmer for better performance.
There is a replacement symbol on the shaver’s display.
When the replacement symbol lights up, then you have to replace the Foil & cutter cassette and this symbol will remind you during the next 7 shaves to replace the Foil & cutter cassette.
The foil & cutter cassette need to be replaced after 18 months and replacing at the right time will give you 100% satisfactory shaving performance.
I first mentioned that it is a mid-range electric shaver with sturdy built quality.
The built quality of Braun is amazing but the performance is not comparable with the premium shavers like Panasonic arc5, Braun Series 9 or Philips Norelco 9700.
In its price range, the Braun 7893s must be the best electric shaver and reasonable solution.
Even many users are very pleased with this Braun series 7 7893, moreover, such a high score (4.3 out of 5) would not have been possible if not good in quality.
