Description

Lenovo Legion 5 is a very well-known name whenever we talk about gaming laptops. Last year’s model got massive success in the mid-range category. Now, the company has arrived with its latest 2021 editing. This section will give a quick analysis of this laptop with a conclusion. Without any further delay, let’s get started!

Display & Build

The Lenovo Legion 5 features a 15.6-inch Full HD display at 1920 x 1080p resolution and 165Hz refresh rate. I would say the provided panel is nice and bright, and I was surprised to see it register at 10-bit color @ 165 Hz. Windows reports that it can stream HDR video but can’t use HDR or WCG. The viewing angles are okay, but nothing approaching what you’d find on a gaming laptop that costs several hundred dollars more. I wouldn’t have minded if the display could have gone a little brighter, though.

COLOR ACCURATE DISPLAY WITH SOLID BUILD

The laptop can go as high as 300-nits brightness, and out of the box, it’s at max brightness. Overall, display quality is sub-par and suitable for a gaming laptop. This panel arrives with 100% sRGB coverage, 75% DCI-P3, and nearly 70% Adobe color gamut to satisfy the professionals.

In terms of build quality, taking out of the box feels like an absolute monster. Not shocking that a gaming laptop is heavy, but this feels really heavy, and the lop that extends behind the screen doesn’t help this from feeling big. But on the other hand, its body is strong either. Not a single creak to be heard. Not a single point of the chassis that seemed to flex just a little much. As plastic laptops go, this is about as close to tank-like as I’ve seen.

Performance

The laptop is driven by the powerful AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor, which brings an octa-core CPU with a base clock speed of 3.3GHz and can go as high as 4.4GHz while running in burst mode. Undoubtedly, this is a mighty processor. On top of it, the laptop gets support for a dedicated Nvidia RTX 3050Ti graphics card, which arrives with a 4GB additional VRAM to take care of graphics-intensive tasks. This combination works great to deliver optimal performance. You can easily run most of the good games at higher settings.

EXCILLENT PERFORMANCE

But continues gaming kicks off the fans ON, generating excessive heat because the cooling system is not so great. It doesn’t mean you can’t play games, but excessive gaming is not the cup of tea of this gaming machine. Apart from gaming, the laptop aims for productivity tasks because its display offers decent color accuracy. The powerful hardware helps to run most of the productivity software quite easily. Therefore, if you are a professional editor, it can be a suitable machine for you at an affordable price range.

Keyboard & Audio

Overall, the keyboard feels solid. Despite the keyboard’s look, it doesn’t feel as good as a ThinkPad, but it definitely doesn’t feel cheap, and I’d probably say it feels better than most keyboards. I’m not a huge fan of the offset that comes with a full Numpad keyboard, but understand that there’s not much you can do to solve that on a 15″ chassis. Apart from excellence in comfort, this keyboard also supports multicolor 4-zone RGB backlighting, making the gaming experience more adorable.

COMFORTABLE KEYBOARD WITH AVERAGE AUDIO OUTPUT

As far as audio is concerned, The provided 2x 2W speakers are okay as expected. They’re loud, but probably not what we usually expect out of something being sold as a gaming laptop. There’s little to no bass to speak of, lots of muddling in the middle, and the spatial sound doesn’t really seem to change very much. As impressive as the Legion 5 is on paper and in specs, the sound is definitely underwhelming.

RAM & Storage

The laptop is supplied with 16GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB NVMe SSD storage, which is a good amount of RAM & storage you can expect at the given price range. Once inside, you get an additional NVMe slot on the left under a metal shield, and on the right is the preinstalled NVMe and wireless card, which looks replaceable. Under a large metal square, you have two glorious SO-DIMM slots.

GOOD PAIR OF RAM & STORAGE WITH EASY UPGRADABILITY

Why Lenovo insists on soldered RAM on so many of their models (including high-end ThinkPads) is a mystery to me, but it was very welcome to see that you could bump your memory up if you wanted to. The shield over the RAM pops off, but I’d strongly advise using a pry tool in the corner in the picture I’ve added to this. You can get a little bit of leverage there without pressing against vulnerable components. Beyond that, the battery seems relatively easy to replace, as well.

I/O Ports & Connectivity

This is the criteria where this laptop really shines. There are lots of USB ports given to this laptop. Starting from the right side, there is a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port and a camera switch, which the company calls e-shutter to protect privacy. There is a USB 3.2 Gen 2 DP 1.4 Type-C port coupled with a headphone jack on the left-hand side. This port is reserved for data transfer only, and you can’t charge the device.

DECENT SET OF USB PORTS, BUT LACKS MICRO SD READER

But the real treasure is hidden at the rear side, where lots of ports are available. The rear side includes 3x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, USB 3.2 Gen Type-C port with DisplayPort 1.4 & power delivery, RJ45 ethernet port, HDMI 2.1, and a traditional power input port. Besides, it supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 to enhance connectivity.

Battery

The battery life might not be as attractive as a business laptop. But from a gaming laptop’s perspective, this is exceptional. The laptop bears a 4-cell 80Whrs battery, which can easily last around 5-6 hours in normal usage. Overall, it is not too good, but not bad either.

SATISFACTORY BATTERY LIFE
