Appearance: They just look exactly the same from the outside. If I do not tell you who is who, it’s extraordinary hard to tell them apart. Both of them have a cylindrical handle, and the SmartRing is at the top of it. That allows you to customize colors, which I’ll cover in more detail below. Above the handle is the power key, with an arrow under it, which is used to select modes. And the symbols representing the function are distributed vertically in the center of the handle, they all have LED lights, and when you choose it, it will be lit. At the bottom is the battery light, which can tell you when it’s time to charge the toothbrush.

It provides you feedback from the pressure sensor, Brushing timer and Bluetooth connection with ease. It gives your toothbrush a personalized touch by illuminating from every angle of brushing with your own chosen color.

The Focused Care feature enables you to administer your dentists recommendations via customizable brushing plans. Your last visit to the dentist, provides your dentist with a report of your vital areas which should be focused more intensively.

Brush head：There are three brush heads included, and the round brush head cups and adapts to each tooth to give the professional cleaning. It primarily uses oscillations, rotations, and pulsation to dissolve and remove plaque 100% more than a regular manual toothbrush. Both toothbrushes are in line with all the Oral B brush heads. The cross action toothbrush head consists of cris-cross bristles which are at the rate of a 16-degree angle. It gives you a superior cleaning experience by reaching deep between teeth and by increasing plaque removal of these places.

What is the difference
What they have in similar is more than what they have in difference, but that doesn’t mean there’s no difference.
Colors: The handle design of both is quite similar, but the colors. The Oral-B genius 8000 comes in Black and Rose Gold. While the 7500 comes in 4 different colors—White, Black, Rose Gold, and Orchid. The only difference in the appearance of the Genius 8000 is there is an extra LED symbol—tongue cleaning mode, except the color.
Travel case: With Oral-B Genius 8000, you get a smart travel case that is designed to charge both your toothbrush and the smartphone using only one outlet. It can hold one handle and two brushes. If you two go out, you can take only one set of equipment, with sharing a handle and it’s a good way to save space. The 7500 travel case doesn’t have such a feature. Nevertheless, it’s also of excellent quality, light and strong.
Smartphone holder: Only the Oral-B Genius 8000 package includes a universal smartphone holder which can be placed anywhere you want. It makes it easier to view your phone while brushing your teeth, which also increase the efficiency of the Oral-B smartphone app.
Position detection: The Oral B genius 8000 comes with a position detection technology which allows you to see where you are brushing. When looking at where you are brushing, the chances are very less, that you miss a zone. You can be confident that you remove plaque and clean the mouth effectively. The 7500 does not possess that Position Detection technology.
The Sixth Modes：The tongue cleaning mode is present only in the Oral-B Genius 8000 in addition to the extra 5 modes which are present in both the toothbrushes. It encourages tongue cleaning after brushing.
Pros and Cons
Pros: The 7500’s multiple cleaning modes help you to adjust your cleaning method according to your wish. And it’s rich in colors, you can have more choices.
Cons: Its battery life is a bit short compared to other brands of electric toothbrushes at the same price. It’s a little expensive, in terms of its existing functions.
Pros: The genius 8000 has 6 features, that can provide you with a better experience of brushing your teeth. It is equipped with a smartphone holder, which is extremely convenient for everyday use. What’s worth mentioning is that the position detection technology is amazing to me. It is the most innovative and modern technology which makes gives the toothbrush a live touch.
Cons: It is considerably higher in price than many of the other electric toothbrushes by Oral-B and the other brands as well. Only a 2 pin adapter is provided in Oral-B toothbrushes. A 3 pin adapter also will be useful if they could provide it. The cleaning efficiency of the circular brush head is on the low side. There is no way to adjust its intensity.
Depending on the above comparison, now you have an idea about which one suits you the most. When considering the price, Oral-B 7500 occupy a favorable position for it’s noticeably less price. But if you can pay a little bit more the Genius 8000 is a good choice. I’m sure it doesn’t disappoint you special it’s Position Detection technology and smart travel case.
