Only toothbrush and dental health app you will needI received a free sample of the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected to review. Overall I thought the toothbrush handle was excellent and clear upgrade from my previous Sonicare. However, I was underwhelmed by my perception of the accuracy of the connected app cleaning feature. Therefore, my overall rating is a Good.
Pros: Great handle, great brush heads, easy to connect with app, auto pressure sensor, different cleaning modes, nice travel case, long lasting battery when fully charged, plenty of integrated features in app (for brushing, tracking goals, progress, tools, etc.)
Cons: It was questionable to be how the accurate the app detailed my coverage area, there was no UV cleaning connected to base, I didn`t use many app features
This product is definitely superior to my last SonicCare. There are numerous features that can help aid your progress in various areas such as overall tracking, plaque removal, gum health and whitening. It is work stating that my teeth are already in very good condition and I do not have any issues with gum, plaque, etc. As a result, most of these features were underutilized by me. However, there is plenty to explore and integrate with the app for any type of user that is looking for a personal dental `hub` of info and progress.
I would recommended this product to anyone concerned with improving for maintaining their dental health!

Best toothbrush on the marketI have been using the same Sonicare E-series and I love it. But after starting to use the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum, there is a clear difference. This new brush gives a much more thorough clean. My feels clean all day, even at the end of the day there is no build up of tarter. Also this product is much easier to clean, no crevices to worry about dirt build up as with the E-series. The battery also lasts extremely long with > 1 month of twice daily use. Overall this is the best brush i have ever used and would recommend to anyone.

Welcome to the future of toothbrushesThis is the third and by far, best Sonicare toothbrush I have owned. I Started with one of the original bulky brushes years ago and then upgraded to one of the newer compact models. Now I have entered the future with the FlexCare Platinum Connected.
I have never had a Sonicare toothbrush die on me, so each time I purchased a new one was because I wanted a better model. The handle lasts for years, so it's a small price to pay for healthy teeth and gums.
I didn't know Bluetooth toothbrushes were a thing until I used this one. It comes with a handle, charger, travel case, and two brush heads. I downloaded the app and pairing the Sonicare to my Android phone was simple. I was amazed that I could (almost) watch my teeth as they were being brushed. It's not going to show detail precise to each tooth, but it will show where you're brushing in each quadrant and the app will tell you if you're brushing too hard or moving too fast. I sometimes got into the habit of brushing without paying attention to the beeps for each section, but the app gives me a different perspective and it's like I can see the plaque coming off as I brush. If I miss a spot, the app will show me and ask if I would like to do a touch up.
The physical handle is well constructed as I expect a Sonicare to be. I don't know if it's just me, but this model feels more powerful than my old one. I did have some issues with the app where I would be brushing a section and it wouldn't register in the app, so i'd have to twist the brush around a bit until the app for re-oriented. It also unexpectedly closed on me a few times after I stopped brushing. I believe this was all in the app and not the physical hardware of the toothbrush. The app get updated regularly by the app developers and my phone it starting to get slow too. It could have been my phone, the app, or a combination. The app works well otherwise. One other downside is that you can't use the deep clean mode with the app, only the regular and whitening mode.
Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this toothbrush. My only suggestion would be to develop a lite version of the app with just the essential brushing and history features. That way there might be less issues with some phones and less space/memory the app takes up. I received a Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected for free to use for this review.

HX9192/01This worked great initially. Now, about 3 weeks later the app will not calibrate the brush. I love the brush but the app is not ready for prime time.

Does an Excellent JobI have been using Sonicare Toothbrushes for years. I've been very happy with them. I just purchased the latest version that is connected.
I like the connected part, though, having the phone in the bathroom with me is worrisome. I may switch to one of my older phones so I don't have to worry about water.
On thing I don't like about the new models is the new way it breaks up the section of the teeth. The old way was four sections: Front Top, Back Top, Front Lower, Back Lower.
The new way has a very inefficient way with six locals.
Please give us an option to change the "paser" to the old four section way and this brush would be perfect.

The Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected toothbrush with Bluetooth made my life easy.As a father of two children who works many hours, I am always excited to test out a product that has the potential to make my life easier. The Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected toothbrush with Bluetooth did just that which I received as a free test product.
•This toothbrush has many features, including bluetooth capability that can show me exactly where and how hard I am brushing and even track problem areas and show me where I have the potential for cavities or gum problems. I found out a lot about my teeth and gums that I didn’t know before.
•The shape of the toothbrush is effective for cleaning my teeth and gums, and I like that the toothbrush allows me to brush with the perfect about of pressure and speed that is just right for me.
•The two minute timer makes sure that I am not cutting corners when I am tempted to with a regular toothbrush.
•The smart monitor even alerts me to when my brush head needs to be replaced, which really comes in handy for a busy dad like me.
•Lastly, I like that it comes with a travel case and travel charger, as I do have to travel for my job.
Product Assembly / Ease of Use:
• This toothbrush is really easy to use and to take care of. Once the battery is charged it is set to go.
• Setting up the bluetooth capabilities and connecting it with the App on my phone, however, did take some time and a few different tries. This was one thing that I found a bit frustrating.
•Once the App is set up it is really easy to use and understand for simple tracking and monitoring.
Performance / Recommendation:
•I would say that this toothbrush has top-rate performance. I do feel like I have a cleaner, healthier mouth after using it for a few weeks.
•I would recommend this to a friend or family member who is looking for a quality electric toothbrush.
•I would not recommend this to the older members of my family, however, as I know the smart sensors and monitoring/using the App would probably be confusing for them.
•One thing that I think would make this toothbrush even better would be a self-sanitizing case, such as a UV light for daily cleaning.
Overall, I was impressed with the Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected toothbrush with Bluetooth and plan to purchase one for my wife very soon.

Life altering!I had tried another brand of electric toothbrush before, battery operated disposables, manual-all seemed the same, teeth never really felt that clean especially the older I got. I lived for dentist cleanings but within days teeth felt ugh again. I finally bought a Sonicare and from the first use I have been in love! Teeth feel so smooth and clean and I am sooo happy. My husband thought I was nuts, till I got him one-another happy brusher! Then I gifted my adult daughters and they love it too! There is no comparison. I cannot wait for my next dental checkup, I will highly recommend they advise their patients to try Sonicare.

Great product, app not so goodThe toothbrush is great, keeps my teeth sparkling. The app is not very good in that it is very hard to get out of after brushing and because the toothbrush doesn't accurately sync up to where the brush is in my mouth. The phone and the brush are literally right next to each other. So that is a definite flaw, but all in all the toothbrush works well and does what its supposed to do.
