Late 2019/early 2020, Braun introduced new models into their existing Series 7 and 5 for the US market. Along with that, they have released models in a new series, 6. The noteworthy thing about all these new models is the new design and reduced prices for the respective series.
In addition, we can’t help but notice a few patterns that these models series have. For example, all of these models have a similar design. Moreover, they have a similar shaving head.
However, they differ in a certain characteristic feature that is specific to models in the same series. For instance, in the newer series 7 models, we see the 360-degree flexible head. In series 5 models, we see the EasyClean feature which enables you to wash the shaving head without removing it from the shaver. In series 6 models, like the one we have at hand, we see SensoFlex. This gives the shaver the ability to adapt to facial contours with relatively less pressure.

Braun Series 6 6020s Review - Why You Should/Should Not Buy This?
Design and Construction
Talking about the design of the Braun 6 series 6020s, we can see that it has a very slim structure with a soft grip for better handling while shaving. Only two colors are used and this gives it a very eye-pleasing effect with the blue covering the sides of the handle and the head completely black.
Braun Series shavers are intended to provide a good grip on your hand naturally and instinctively. The ergonomic, curved shape and the ideal position of the interface touch points allow you to have the best usage in every shave.
The texture of the grip feels perfect for different shaving positions and is easy to handle.
LED display provides some very useful information for the user such as the battery life in case it needs to be recharged. Along with that, it also gives an indication if there is any need for blade cleaning or replacement. This feature adds to the user experience and makes this shaver very user-friendly.
Shaving Performance of Braun Series 6 6020s
The Braun Series 6 6020s razor is great for users having sensitive skin. I like that it can be used wet or dry as it is 100% waterproof. The SensoFlex is the key element that has the low-pressure adaptation resulting in a close and comfortable shaving experience.
You can use it in areas that are hard to reach due to its flexible blades as compared to the older and conventional shavers. The three flexible blades get close and contour to your skin. The precision trimmers are really useful to trim that sideburn hair.
Typically, electric shavers, as we all know, are more convenient and less messy when compared with manual razors but at times they just do not provide you with results in terms of closeness or shave. That definitely was NOT the case with the 6020s shaver because it gives you a fast, relaxed, and pain-free shave.
As this shaver incorporates a similar shaver head as we see in other newer models, we can expect similar overall performance. The shaving head is more close to lower-end series 5 and 3 and this makes it an average performer.
In terms of closeness, it would provide a good enough shave for most users especially if you shave at a greater frequency like shaving every one to two days. However, I did struggle with my longer three-to-four-day growth. This may be due to the fact that I do have some stubborn and wire-like hair patches under my lower lip. However, as said, it did provide a satisfactorily close shave on most occasions and would satisfy most users.
Braun shavers have pressure-sensitive blades that rightly adjust to the sensitivity of your skin. The premium models like the series 6 come with an active flexible head that keeps utmost contact along facial contours while perfectly adjusting to the sensitivity of your skin.
The wet and dry feature of the shaver is also a plus point for the users having sensitive skin. This means that you are allowed to use the shaver with shaving cream, gel, or foam without having any afterthought about its durability. Plus you can use it in the shower as it is 100% waterproof, cool isn’t it?
Battery Life and Charging
When we talk about the battery life of Braun 6020s, it has a lithium-ion battery which is pretty standard nowadays and matches contemporary electric shavers in the market.
Braun 6020s gives you a runtime of 50 minutes. It is fully charged in one hour, however, if there is a time constraint it has the ability to give you a quick 5-minute charge which provides the juice for one complete shave.
As mentioned earlier, Braun Shavers are 100% waterproof which means that they can be cleaned under running water.
It is noteworthy that the 6020s does not come with a cleaning and charging station or the new Smart Care center. However, you can use the newer cleaning and charging station that you can get some other series 6 or series 7 models.
The standard package includes
- One Braun 6020s Shaver
- A precision trimmer attachment
- One travel case
- A Smart plug for 100-240 auto voltage adjustment
- One cleaning brush
Braun Series 6 6020s Vs 6072cc Vs 6075cc
If we compare the 6020s with some other shavers in this newly released series, we see that they incorporate the same shaving head. Other than that, the design also is similar. However, they differ in the color combination a shaver uses.
In the 6020s and 6072cc, we see that they have blue dominant on the front, where 6075cc is all-black. Apart from that, they differ in the accessories they come with. For example, 6020s and 6072cc come with a precision trimmer. Whereas 6075cc also comes with a precision trimmer but it also has a couple of beard attachments.
Therefore, you can choose between models depending upon your grooming needs and also your preference if you want a cleaning and charging station or not.
Braun, as we all know, has a positive brand image across the globe due to its German-engineered technology and quality standards. Due to the factor of ever-changing demands in the market every company is trying to update and introduce new products to satisfy the needs and wants of the ever-changing market and diverse users
Braun is the market leader in the electric shaver industry and they have introduced the all-new series 6 which according to my experience and analyses does a great job. The design is more ergonomic and performance is at par as one would rightly expect from a Braun shaver.
Braun Series 6 6020s emphasizes the sensitive shave and it has rightfully lived up to its tagline. I would not hesitate to share my own experience as I have sensitive skin and this shaver worked perfectly living up to my expectations. Therefore, it is a must-have for users with sensitive skin.
