Comparison to Competitor 2
While Goby has the options of a small, oscillating brush head and different brush frequency options, Quip ultimately costs less, is more lightweight, has a longer battery life, and still delivers on a quality and educational brushing experience.
Comparison to Competitor 3
Compared to Buck Brush Co., Quip is more expensive but absolutely worth the higher price, since Buck Brush Co. requires the brush head to be monthly. With Buck Brush Co., this is a forced subscription and ends up costing more than Quip over a year. While Quip offers an optional subscription for a new brush head that only needs to be replaced every 3 months. Quip is the more convenient and lightweight option that brings less of a hassle to the brushing experience.
