About this deal
With regards to the Genius 8000 specifically; it has an extensive box contents which adds to the overall size of the box and the total weight. Some of these items are potentially not necessary. All these modes, with the exception of Pro Clean are standard cleaning modes found on previous/other Oral-B models, although not all models have every mode. The Pro 6000 and 6500 is the only other one to date to offer all of these. If your main concern is the result that each brush can give you, then stop at this section and don’t miss a word. There is a good chance the brush will last longer than the 3 year period and using the same brush handle but switching heads with other users in your household will only help bring the cost down and drive more value from it. The Smart 5 5000 comes supplied with a more suitable holder too. It sits on a work surface rather than needing to be attached to a wall. It is our opinion is smarter and less unsightly. You just need to pop your phone in it, which takes a couple of seconds compared to the tens of seconds with the genius brush configuration. You phone then sits in portrait or landscape orientation and shows the on-screen timer.
The 600 comes in light Blue or Pink whilst the Pro 2 2000 comes in a dark Blue or Pink. Both have gloss white plastic bodies. Both come with a premium travel case and a 2+ week battery life. A visible pressure sensor, 2 minute timer and pacer are built-in too. iO Series vs Genius X Why? They incorporate six brushing modes, all the display of artificial intelligence and all the other features of the Genius series. The dynamic 3D movement helps adapt to your teeth as it oscillates, rotates and pulsates to break up and remove up to 100% more plaque than a manual toothbrush.The reality is, you could use any mode on the brush to clean your tongue just ending the clean sooner. Although the speed and number of oscillations will be different. Power isn’t normally promoted or documented as it is a small part of the toothbrushing experience. More power doesn’t necessarily equal a better clean. Your total brushing time and technique have a big part to play. The Pro 3 3000 has a slightly revised design. It looks a little cleaner. Unlike the 2000, it does not have a rubber grip that runs the length of the brush handle. Instead, the only grip on the front is the panel that contains the power button. Frequent travellers may demand longer battery life and if this is a must take a look at Philips Sonicare DiamondClean, but if 16 days is ample then great. This is a cycle that lasts for 20 seconds with 7300 oscillations and 30,000 pulsations and designed for as the name suggests, cleaning the tongue.
The dual handle version comes with 2 handles, but it does not come with 2 travel cases or charging stands. You do get an additional brush head (1 x CrossAction) included in the box. In this comparison we are going to talk about the Oral-B Genius X, the Oral-B Genius 8000, the Oral-B Genius 9000 and the Oral-B Genius 10000. All sophisticated models in which you have to pay attention to every detail to find their differences and thus find out which one you need.If you need more detail on any of the brushes, read on or leave a comment.

The SmartRing is present in all four Oral-B Genius models. Excuse me, have I read mobile application? The connection and transfer is fairly reliable and I have yet to run into any real problems. Here’s agallery of screenshots from the app for those that are interested: The idea and logic behind this is that it is supposed to act like a coach or mentor or be like having a dentist or hygienist looking over your shoulder saying good, bad, brush for longer, you missed a bit. Both do a job and give a home to brush heads, but the 9000 is a neater and more desirable solution. Kids/Junior series: Variations of the Vitality, Pro and Smart Series brushes aimed at kids and teens. Often slightly smaller and featuring favourite characters or more colourful designs.A big improvement, it means you can go between charges for longer and works better for those who travel and are away from power. The Professional Guidance feature allows you and your dental professional to work together. Actually share and discuss improvement areas and have your dentist actually program into the app extra brushing time and adjustments to your cleaning modes. It seems like an aesthetic addition of little value, but we have to add that it is much more than that. The location of the SmartRing is not arbitrary, but is located at a point from which it is always visible during brushing. Why? Well, because this ring of light will warn you if you are applying excessive pressure on your teeth. Aside from this the two brushes feel the same in hand, weigh the same and have the same warranty, they both come with a charging stand and 1 brush head in the box. Pro 2 2000 vs Pro 3 3000
The battery status icons flashes when low. The flashing helps but a percentage guide would be useful, but I have yet to see a brush that offers this. I would have thought that the partnership with the app would have allowed this, but sadly no evidence of this. An idea for a future update? As a smart toothbrush it increases the component usage and when the brush eventually fails, it causes more waste.I found myself at times, spending more time cleaning my teeth (this is a good thing to a point) to try and ensure I got all areas of the mouth. However, in doing so, due to the app not registering the areas quite correctly, ended up spending more time in certain areas of the mouth than others. This resulted in the app thinking I had done a splendid job when I know I had not. I mentioned in the pros and cons section of this review, the pressure sensor. Designed to reduce and stop gum and tissue abrasions that are caused by excessive pressure being used when brushing the teeth should you do just this, the triple pressure sensor technology gives a visual notification via the Oral-B app and through the LED SmartRing which illuminates red. The brush will automatically reduce the head speed and stop the pulsation until the pressure is reduced. Such a shift and education process does require more hardware and attitude to the process of brushing your teeth which should be happening twice a day. Perfecting your brushing routine, including the brushing time, technique and frequency will bring more positive benefit than any particular toothbrush. Battery life– Still not perfect or as good as Philips, the extra 2 days of usage time compared to the Pro 6000 makes the Genius more compelling with a total of up to 12 days battery power.
