Rated 1 out of 5 by Sergey Weak motor - gives out with years of use
This is a great toothbrush when you get it at first. But after 2 years of ownership the motor gets worn out and becomes very, VERY WEAK!
It's supposed to brush side-to-side, but mine got so weak that when the bristles just TOUCH the tooth (not pressing at all, just touch), the motor is too weak to turn the bristle and it makes a loud "humming" noise as if the motor is STUCK - wants to go, but it can't handle the pressure (even thought there is no pressure, just touching the surface of the tooth). Great toothbrush. Loved it when it worked. But now the motor giving out revealing the weak internals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kendall This is a really great product.
The app that connects with the Phillips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum toothbrush is a great way to show someone the areas that are not getting brushed adequately. It also reminds you to floss and brush your tongue. The app does a great job showing you the areas that are not getting brushed long enough. Although the app is really good, I'm not sure that people will use it on a regular basis because you have to have your phone with you every time you brush your teeth. I found myself not using the app if my phone wasn't nearby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Prettylake Noticed cleaner teeth right away
I have had periodontal disease since 1984 and have cleanings every 4 months. Sometimes my teeth look good, sometimes not so good when I use my manual toothbrush. No matter how well I brush, my gums still bled sometimes and had more tarter than I would like.The Sonicare Flexcare Platinum was recommended by my periodontist, so I got the one that is phone connected. On the second day of use there was a noticeable difference. My teeth felt as smooth as when I had them cleaned at the periodontist , and after 5 days, my gums no longer bled. I would suggest that the handle be sculpted in slightly in the middle so it would be easier to hold. With arthritis it is hard to hold. Also 2 minutes is not enough time to brush, and need more time to touch up the missed areas. I use the clean setting, not deep clean, because my gums are sensitive but I have used the whitening setting also and it has made no visible difference in my teeth

Rated 4 out of 5 by BrendanM A Techy Toothbrush that Leaves Teeth Clean
I received the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Toothbrush W/ UV sanitizer about two months ago. I began using the brush immediately and I noticed a difference in how clean my teeth felt. I also noticed that because of the Bluetooth connection and the Philips App that I was able to and began paying more attention to how often I brush and where in my mouth I am brushing. This was a nice plus at first, but once I improved my brushing routine I stopped needing the app and could just tell and feel when I did a great job.
Outside of the brushing improvements, I noticed that this toothbrush and all the gadgetry that comes with it (charger, carrying case, sanitizer) took up more space than I had hoped in my already small and already crowded bathroom sink area. I would've preferred if the brush and its accompanying accessories were more streamlined and took up less space.
Overall, I enjoyed this product and like how it left my teeth with that dentist clean feel, but at the same time I thought the product just had too much other stuff going on with it and all this gadgetry distracts from my enjoyment and use of the actual toothbrush.
Also, please note that I received this item for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
