80% Lenovo Legion Phone Duel review: A god among gaming phones?
Source: Pocket Lint English
When it comes to gaming, there's little better, with optimised design and software additions to boost the gaming experience. There's a trade-off in daily usage based on that design - but you do get a lot of (gaming) phone for your money.

77% Lenovo Legion Phone Duel Review – Powerful But Needs That Oomph Factor
Source: Pokde English
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is a good gaming phone and it’s certainly one that is worth considering over its competition. You get a display with 144Hz refresh rate, excellent performance, surprisingly good camera, decent stereo speaker experience, RGB lighting, pop-up selfie camera orientation that is perfect for streaming / video calls. However, the UI feels a little outdated, it’s a little pricey, the competition packs more value in their gaming phone offerings with free coolers and other accessories, the battery life could be better, no headphone jack, the colours become a little dull at high refresh rates, and there’s the worry of the longevity of the pop-up camera module.

Lenovo Legion Phone Duel review - Best gaming phone for streaming
Source: Tech Nave English
At RM3399, we think it's not a bad option for owning a mobile gaming phone. Besides the badass futuristic gaming design, the Legion Phone Duel does what all other gaming phones do best but with a twist - streaming your games online without any interference and that's the main selling point. So as we said before, only serious mobile gamers and streamers should get this phone.

So if you don’t want to stream and want the best mobile gaming experience that money can buy, forget about both the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel and the ROG Phone 3, get the Black Shark 3 Pro.

Lenovo Legion Phone Pro Audio review: Falling short of expectations
Source: DxOMark English
As a recording device, the Lenovo Legion Phone Pro is not terribly adept, but again, this may be a function of priorities. The device worked fairly well in the memo and meeting use cases, with few artifacts and stereo recording. But the timbre performance was poor in most use cases, and especially in the electronic concert use case, where the recorded audio was simply bad. The poor artifacts performance contributed to the poor dynamics and spatial performances in life video and selfie video, and the recordings in those cases were mono. Had the device been better designed for recording, its overall score would have been better.

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.

Lenovo Legion Phone Duel Review: Overcharged Gaming Phone
Source: Unbox English
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.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 865+ (Plus): High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in mid 2020 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC (improved N7P). Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-A77 architecture clocked at up to 3.1 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A77 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6E modem (including 60 GHz mmWave support), a Hexagon 698 DSP (up to 15 TOPS) and a Spectra 480 ISP. The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR5 memory with up to 2,750 MHz. LTE is not included anymore in the SoC, but the external Snapdragon X55 5G modem has to be used.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.65":

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.

0.239 kg:

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. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

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.


82.36%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
