Rated 4 out of 5 by cjteteak Great brush and sanitizer, app is ok
Received as a free sample for review.
Overall this is a significant upgrade from my old sonicare essential brush. My wife and I like different strength settings and it was nice to be able to switch.
Focusing primarily on the toothbrush as just a toothbrush, I think it does it`s job well and my mouth feels very clean when I`m done. I like the feedback I get with the timer for the different sections of my mouth and the pressure sensor is helpful as well. Beyond that I think the app is a little too much. I don`t always feel like finding my phone and opening an app when I want to brush my teeth, let alone have the time to think about it when busy in the morning. The piece of mind I get with the UV sanitizer is nice too considering toothbrushes are in the bathroom in relative close proximity to the toilet.
- Long battery life. took on a trip for a week and left charger at home.
- Travel case is a nice acessory
- Various strength settings
- UV sanitizer
- App is a bit gimmicky and while fun to play with at first, not really something I found myself using much. Although could be lots of fun for kids learning how to brush properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IvarsA Amazing experience!
I had a chance to get free sample of new Sonicare bluetooth toothbrush. I have been using it for past 10 days and so far it has been pretty good.
It was interesting connecting with the phone and seeing which part of my teeth I was not brushing enough. And the biggest lesson for me was that I was pushing my toothbrush too hard and the app let me know. Great product!
I would definitely suggest getting this toothbrush, different experience brushing your teeth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ClayB Brushing on another level!
I'm a fanatic when it comes to oral health. I brush twice per day, floss and I use mouthwash. So imagine my excitement when I discovered that I'd have the opportunity to sample the Phillips Flexcare Platinum in exchange for my review. I previously owned a Phillips Sonicare electric toothbrush. I'm familiar with the brand and the quality products they make. The Flexcare Platinum takes an already great product to the next level. The brush head is wide and provides great coverage for your teeth. It leaves your teeth feeling like you just came from the dentist clean. Installation of the brush head is very simple and only requires you to firmly push the brush head into the body of the toothbrush. The toothbrush feels good in your hand as you brush. The placement of the power button causes an issue for me while brushing. I mistakenly hit the button which turns off the brush. Three cleaning modes provide a great cleaning experience and allow you to personalize your brushing experience. I like the integration of technology with the brush. You have the option to download an app that connects to your toothbrush via Bluetooth. The app provides feedback on your brushing technique while brushing. You also have the options to see your progress, set goals and find a dental professional or shop from products on the app. The app even tells you when your brush head needs to be replaced! My only complaint about the app is that you need to have the toothbrush in close range, aka right next to you as you brush. This can be a nuisance as brushing can get very messy. I wish there was a way for you to "turn" on the app in another room while brushing your teeth.
Overall, I am VERY pleased with the brush. I've been spreading the word about the brush to my friends and family and will continue to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ohioualum99 High Tech Toothbrush great clean with many options
I received the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected as a free sample for my honest review. I have owned two other Sonicare electric toothbrushes in the past and was excited to try this new technology. Overall, the toothbrush lives up to all my expectations for a great electric toothbrush. I really enjoy the flexibility to adjust the type of brushing you use including time and intensity's. I personally prefer the deep clean setting and occasionally use the whiting. I like the concept of the Sonicare app to follow how well I'm brushing and where I need to brush better. I really have not gotten to into the app at this point, as usually when I'm brushing (before bed/before leaving for work) I don't have the time or desire to sit down and review my brushing habits. I do take a look from time to time and have been happy. The brush feels good in my hand considering all the technology it is packing and the toothbrush battery seems to last forever! Overall the toothbrush is great, and I feel like I'm getting a better cleaning then with my previous sonciare brush and that is saying something. I will say that I think the app technology may be a little much but I will keep trying it and see if it grows on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkT This kit teaches you how to be a better brusher!
Let's get this out the way, I received this product as a free sample for me to try it out and express my thoughts.
And now that I've used it for about a week, I don't think I'll be going to any other toothbrush in the foreseeable future.
I say that, because with this toothbrush AND kit, I feel like I'm getting to a lifestyle of better brushing and better hygiene...and isn't that the point of these products?
From my experience, I've used regular ol' toothbrushes for the majority of my life. I even dabbled into other variations of electric toothbrushes. They seem to '1-up' traditional toothbrushes because they vibrate or buzz so quickly that they can get in wayyy more strokes than what your normal brush can do. That alone is a worthy upgrade for better hygiene. But what this 'kit' has over a regular electric toothbrush is that is has many sensors and even an APP (via bluetooth) to really monitor your brushing and give you feedback on your cleaning habits. Once you load up the free app, and connect it to your brush, and start brushing away, the app gives you feedback on pressure, mouth coverage, duration and even the health of the brush head. What I initially thought of as gimmicky, this app actually trains you to be a better brusher!
Will I be using the app 6-12 months from now? Honestly, probably not. But thats because I feel that I'll continually learn and train to be a better brusher by then and I'll be able to ween off the app feedback once I get better.
The app itself provides a really useful tool on better hygiene, but for added value of this kit, it also includes 2 different brush heads, a UV sanitizer as well as travel accessories for when you're on the go. A travel case, a different travel charger, as well as some travel caps.
I feel like this kit is pretty much the deluxe package for those shopping for electronic toothbrushes. If this is your first electronic toothbrush, I highly recommend getting this kit for the app. If you are going to invest in this, you might as well learn how to properly use these types of toothbrushes, and that is the key selling point for me.

I received a free sample to review. I have been using Sonicare brushes for over a decade, thanks to my dentist`s recommendation. They have made a very significant difference in my oral health, by reducing periodontal pockets. This Sonicare will give you that `squeaky clean` feel that`s impossible to get with a manual brush yet it`s definitely gentle and easy to brush the back of my teeth Has a `personalized coach` with Sonicare app. The various settings really allow you to customize the brushing experience. Setup was quick and easy to clean with a wonderful holding handle and a long battery life.

I Received the Sonicare FlexCare in exchange for my review. I have used an electric toothbrush for several years now and generally happy. This new concept is very interesting. I never thought about how I was brushing was it too hard, was I moving the brush head to much. The APP is very easy to follow and is quite interesting to see how you are doing brushing your teeth. The timer is also a great feature, as we all think we brush for longer than we do. I have been using the Flex Care for 2 weeks now and find my brushing has gotten much better. I look forward to my next dentist visit in a few weeks to see if my report is better. I would highly recommend this toothbrush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkR YOU NEED THIS BRUSH!
This is my first electric toothbrush. I have always been curious about them, so when I got this model in exchange for an online review I was super psyched!!
I know that in the past, I have always rushed through brushing my teeth, and with this Sonicare, brushing was made fun. I also definitely used to miss spots, especially way back in the back. I have a somewhat small mouth so it is difficult for me to get typical brushes back there well enough to get the back teeth. With this brush though, the head is the right size to get back there, and the vibration strong enough to do a great job of cleaning my back teeth. The bluetooth connected Iphone app allows me to assure that I thoroughly brush teeth and that I brush long enough. Setup of the brush and the app were super easy, and the Iphone app is really excellent. It lets you the amount of pressure you are using and which quadrant of the to go to next. It even updates you when it`s time to purchase a new brush head. Honestly, at first I was skeptical, but I`m now really love both the brush and the app.
I am a very clean person, so the UV brush head sanitizer is just my speed and definitely my favorite feature. The brush is well designed and easy to grip and doesn't require much effort at all to get your teeth feeling squeaky clean. I will certainly not be able to go back to a manual brush after using the Phillips Sonicare. I can feel and see a noticeable difference in the cleanliness of my teeth since using this for the past 10 days. I have been recommend this toothbrush everyone I know!
