Lenovo Legion 5 (15″ Intel, 2021) review – great allrounder for gaming with decent price tag


As we've concluded in one of our reviews, the Lenovo Legion 5 (15″ AMD, 2021) is a great gaming device that has only a few disadvantages. In this article, we're going to inspect the per…

No SD card;High luminance nonuniformity (BOE NV156FHM-NY8 (BOE0998));Battery life could be better

Overall, the Lenovo Legion 5 (15″ Intel, 2021) is a great allrounder and it offers a lot of bang for its money. The device has an all-plastic build that feels solid and rigid even when you try to twist it on purpose. Sure, the lid is a bit bendy but...

Lenovo Legion 5 review (2021 model, Ryzen 7 5800H, RTX 3050Ti)


So I'm still looking for that laptop to replace the one my wife dropped. After trying the Dell Inspiron 5155 first, my next target was the Lenovo Legion

great build quality ; good keyboard and trackpad ; good screen ; nice CPU performance and alright GPU ; lots of upgrade options ; decent battery life, especially if you can find an 80Whr model ; competitively priced

lousy webcam ; subpar speakers ; beware of potential issues with the included Realtek WiFi chip

Lenovo Legion 5 (15″ AMD, 2021) review – in search of perfection


Last year, Lenovo was both conservative, and bold. Although it kept the same design, which proved successful in the past, the manufacturer took the risk to rely on AMD (in addition to Intel) for th…

Lenovo Legion 5 (Advantage Edition)


The Lenovo Legion 5 (Advantage Edition) is a new gaming laptop that features both an AMD CPU and AMD GPU. Here are our thoughts.

Marvellously powerful ; Sleek and suave looks ; Immense port selection ; Superb battery life for gaming laptop

FHD display is a little lacklustre ; Heavy design ; A little noisy

The Lenovo Legion 5 (Advantage Edition) is a decent all-round gaming laptop. The combo of a Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU make it a great option for AMD fans, with enough power to play modern games smoothly in 1080p. Alongside this sits a super-generous...

Lenovo Legion 5 (2021) Review | Trusted Reviews


The Lenovo Legion 5 is a smart, subtle and powerful gaming laptop, but with a bulky design, is it good enough to stand out from the crowd?

A great CPU and a smooth, capable graphics core ; Understated and robust design ; High-quality keyboard ; Loads of ports

Underwhelming display ; Mediocre battery life ; Thicker and heavier than competitors

Great keyboard ; Good upgrade options ; Excellent gaming performance

Poor battery life ; Loudspeakers lack bass

The new Legion 5 is yet another great option in this increasingly contested section of the laptop market. It’s capable of better gaming performance than both the Acer Nitro 5 and the Asus TUF Dash F15 and it also comes within striking distance of the...
