Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 – Unique Design with Cooling Fans, But is it Durable?
Source: Manila Shaker English
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 is a gaming beast with a lesser impression on its camera and durability. But the design and architecture are solid, they solved the heating problem when playing for a long period of time and if you’re not going to force it to bend, there are no problems at all. Legion Phon Duel 2 is priced at P39,995 for the lower variant of 12GB of ram and 256GB of storage. If you are opting for the 16GB plus 512GB variant, it will cost P49,995. P10k more to double the storage and more ram for multitasking, it is quite a bummer as the phone doesn’t offer expandable storage, but the 16GB of ram is perfect for stream games on a single handset. If you are not into gaming, other choices in the market would satisfy your needs, like the flagship models. But if you are really opting for a gaming focus machine with an innovative build, astonishing gaming features paired with top-of-the-line specs, the Legion Phone Duel 2 is surely one of the top picks in the market of Gaming focus mobile devices.

Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 Review Philippines: A Beast Of A Phone
Source: Unbox English
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 is a very powerful phone as we’ve found out in our review of the device for the Philippines but prospective buyers need to be aware that they’re essentially buying a device that prioritizes the gaming experience first, and the phone stuff second. That aside, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 is a great phone for Android gaming, thanks to its powerful innards and gamer-centric features, as well as its long battery life. Probably the only thing we’ll knock it for is the lack of gaming accessories that’s available for it, unlike its main rival, though if you’re looking for pure performance, it’s hard to find another phone quite like it.

Beyond its bold and gaudy exterior lies an exceptionally capable and mostly refined device that is a pleasure to use. Though it is big and bulky, it is solidly built and feels premium in the hand. Its display is a pleasure to use through and through, and the in-built speakers are among the better options available on the market today.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
