Gaming phones are no longer new, and there are several options available for smartphones in this category. However, the Legion Phone Duel impresses us with its gaming-centric features to satisfy a serious gamer’s basic needs. There’s landscape orientation of the front camera, which streamers will love, and the fast dual Type-C charging that will save gamers time. Do we need to mention the most powerful Qualcomm chip to date, large RAM, fast storage, 5G connectivity, and 144Hz AMOLED display? The Legion Phone Duel is simply a beast.

The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is big, loud, and powerful, and gives ASUS’s ROG Phone 3 serious competition for the title of the best gaming phone in the Philippines. While the phone doesn’t have as robust of an accessory library as its main rival, it makes up for it nice to have additions like the side-mounted pop-up camera for streamers.

While it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a gaming phone, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is an excellent entry into the market. Not only does it have a slick design, but it also has flagship specifications, a huge amount of RAM and storage, great performance, and other fun features. Too bad it’s not available for sale in North America at this time… but even so, it still deserves an Editor’s Choice Award here at Techaeris.

The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel (aka Lenovo Legion Phone Pro in some regions) is the first Gaming Phone that picked my interest. Gaming Phones are in a category that has been rising steadily since 2017, with an interest spike since April of this year, perhaps due to the lockdowns worldwide.

The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is a really cool device, and if you're looking for the best in performance, look no further. It's got the best chipset, the most RAM, the most storage, and the best screen. You really can't beat it, especially for under $900, which is what the price works out to when converted.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for smartphones.
Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company.

86%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
