Lenovo Legion 7 16 G9 laptop review - A gaming machine with a 3.2K display, HX CPU and an overclocked RTX 4070 laptop

Does it always have to be a pro? With the Legion 7 16 G9, Lenovo is offering a comparatively slim and eye-catching gaming laptop which is also interesting for other target groups such as multimedia users or content creators. Intel's Core i9-14900HX and Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4070 laptop ensure sufficient performance for the 3.2K IPS display and its P3 coverage.

The Legion 7 16 is the Legion Pro 7 16's cheaper and slimmer brother which we only just recently reviewed. There are differences, especially when it comes to the graphics cards with the normal Legion 7's maximum available GPU being the RTX 4070 laptop. However, in terms of the processor, the same Intel HX chips are used and, in addition to the WQHD panels, there is an optional high-resolution, 165 Hz 3.2K IPS panel.

Our review device is the $2,249 Campus variant which comes with a Core i9-14900HX, GeForce RTX 4070 laptop, 32 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD as well as a 3.2K panel. Currently, there are still no corresponding variants for regular customers but the price ought to be around $250-300 higher.

Case - A black aluminum fingerprint magnet

Understated Legion lettering
Understated Legion lettering

The Legion 7 16 is a comparably thin gaming laptop that is also very understated due to its black aluminum case. Unlike the Legion Pro 7, there are no protruding cooling elements on the sides of the device. Visually, the case looks very good, but only for a short time since the smooth surfaces magically attract fingerprints. For this reason, you should always have a cloth handy to clean the case. The screen bezels are very thin with only the camera bump spoiling the look, although this does make it easier to open the case.

Both the case's stability and build quality are very good and we were unable to provoke creaking noises of any kind. Additionally, it is practically impossible to flex the keyboard when pressure is applied. The thin display lid is a touch more flexible but this is also an area where we were unable to cause any image distortions. For our taste, the hinges could be a little firmer because there is a visible rocking motion when adjusting the opening angle (maximum ~170 degrees).

The Legion 7 16 is one of the slimmest devices in our comparison group, however, in terms of weight and overall footprint, there aren't any huge differences. The 230-watt PSU tips the scales at 948 grams.

Features - Thunderbolt but no Ethernet

The ports are distributed both at the sides and also on the rear of the laptop. In this area, the normal Legion 7 does somewhat better than the more expensive Legion Pro 7 because the cooling vents are only located at the back. All of the important standards are here apart from an Ethernet port and this is not ideal for gamers. The Thunderbolt port is connected via the iGPU and this means when you connect an external display, the Nvidia GPU doesn't always have to be active. All other video outputs run directly via the dGPU.

Communication

A Realtek Wi-Fi 6E module is installed inside the Legion. It performs well and, combined with our Asus reference router, it managed both high and stable transfer speeds. Bluetooth 5.1 is supported but the laptop doesn't offer an Ethernet port.

Webcam

The 1080p webcam is housed inside the upper screen bezel and offers an electronic shutter (the switch is on the right-hand side) but, even under good lighting conditions, it only captures average images. The webcam doesn't support Windows Studio Effects, unlike the current Meteor Lake devices.

Maintenance

The base cover is secured by normal cross-head screws and is very easy to remove. In addition to the two RAM modules, there are also two M.2 2280 slots although access to the second slot is somewhat impeded by the Wi-Fi cable. Likewise, both the Wi-Fi module and the battery can be replaced.

Input devices - Numerical pad and individual key lighting

Lenovo has treated the Legion 7 16 to a very comfortable membrane keyboard which comes complete with a dedicated numerical pad and individual key lighting. Overall, the accurate and pleasantly quiet key strikes give no grounds for complaint. Even longer texts can be typed effortlessly. The numerical pad's keys are a little narrower but that doesn't present any problems in real-life situations. The arrow keys are pleasingly large and a fingerprint scanner is integrated into the power button.

The clickpad is positioned slightly to the left of center and, at 12 x 7.5 cm, it is well-proportioned. Swiping actions are translated very nicely and the lower area of the pad can be clicked - albeit rather loudly. For this reason, you should only touch the pad lightly. The Legion Speed Mouse Mad M is also included.

Visible light bleed

Our Legion 7 16 review device is equipped with a high-resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio, IPS display (3,200 x 2,000 pixels). The subjective image quality is good with content appearing very sharp thanks to the display's high resolution. Likewise, colors are also vibrant but current OLED panels offer more vivid images. When it comes to brighter content, the surfaces appear slightly grainy, however, Lenovo mostly manages to avoid that problem by using Windows dark mode as standard. Movements are very smooth thanks to the 165 Hz refresh rate and response times are fast. PWM flickering is not used.

The average brightness sits at around 400 cd/m², but, at 0.43 cd/m², the black value is fairly high and explains why the maximum contrast ratio is only just short of 1,000:1. Additionally, at full brightness and with dark content, there is visible light bleed.

We analyzed the panel using the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2). Lenovo offers various profiles and, out of the box, the default profile offers accurate images. Optionally, there is also a native profile with a higher maximum brightness (~455 cd/m²) but also a color temperature that is much too warm and also has higher color deviations. With our calibration, we were able to further improve the images and a free download of the according profile is available above. Likewise, Lenovo offers a very accurate sRGB mode which is particularly important for editing images. The sRGB color space is covered completely; P3 to 95 %.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
7.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.9 ms rise
↘ 4.3 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.9 ms rise
↘ 7.5 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Thanks to the matte display, the panel can also be used outdoors but, on bright days, the brightness could be even higher. The IPS panel's viewing angle stability is very good.

Performance - Raptor Lake HX and an overclocked RTX 4070 laptop

 
 

Test conditions

As usual, Lenovo offers various energy profiles and we have compiled a summarized list of the according performance data in the following table. The current profile is also displayed via the power button's LED. We carried out the benchmarks and measurements in performance mode in which the GPU is automatically slightly overclocked (+100 MHz core, +200 MHz VRAM). Performance mode is unavailable using battery mode.

Energy profile CPU load CB R23 Multi GPU load Time Spy Graphics Cyberpunk 2077
QHD Ultra
max. fan volume
Quiet mode 65 -> 54 watts 20,203 points 65 watts 8,239 points 35 FPS 38.4 dB(A)
Balanced 120 -> 85 watts 24,142 points 95 watts 9,853 points 41.5 FPS 50.7 dB(A)
Performance mode 154 -> 90 watts 31,127 points 115 watts 12,174 points 51.4 FPS 54.1 dB(A)

Note: Unsuccessfully, we tried updating the Nvidia drivers. The official driver ended the installation with a compatibility problem. Up to now, Lenovo itself has only made the preinstalled 537.70 driver available and this is the one we inevitably used. 

Processor - Core i9-14900HX

Lenovo has also equipped the normal Legion 7 16 with the Core i9-14900HX, the fastest Raptor Lake mobile processor which can also be found in the more expensive Legion Pro 7. Compared to both of the thicker Legion Pro 7/5 16 models, the slimmer case has an impact when it comes to the power limits, dropping to 90 watts after having briefly hit 154 watts. All in all, performance was wonderful both in the multi-core and single-core tests. In battery mode, the processor is allowed to consume a maximum of 60 watts which is why the multi-core performance is around 40 % lower here. Additional CPU benchmarks can be found in our technology section.

Mass storage

In the review device, Lenovo has installed an SK Hynix 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, but, after the first startup, 877 GB are available to the user. At up to 7 GB/s, the transfer speeds are very high and, overall, the SSD is a touch faster than the competition. However, although the performance doesn't always remain stable under sustained load, this isn't something you'll notice in everyday situations. Additional SSD benchmarks are listed here.
