Lenovo Legion S7 15ACH6: 2 kg gaming laptop with 600-nit display

Lenovo Legion S7 15ACH6 in review: 4K gaming laptop with good battery life
Lenovo Legion S7 15ACH6 in review: 4K gaming laptop with good battery life
The Ryzen 9 5900HX APU and the GeForce RTX 3060 laptop GPU bring almost every computer game smoothly onto the matte 4K screen. The latter scores points with very good color reproduction (Pantone-certified) and high brightness. This is complemented by good battery life.

Lenovo has opted for a black (Shadow Black) aluminum case with matte, smooth surfaces for the Legion S7. With a weight of just under 2 kg, the laptop is a lightweight and compact gaming laptop.

Our review device is one of the top configurations in the lineup. The Ryzen 9 5900HX APU, the GeForce RTX 3060 laptop graphics core (max TGP: 100 watts), 32 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode; 16 GB onboard, one RAM module), and a 1 TB NVMe SSD equip the computer for all common application areas. The laptop also provides space for a second NVMe SSD.

The hardware brings nearly all games smoothly onto the 4K screen. In general, the full resolution can be used - but not always at high to maximum quality settings. A bit of extra performance can still be squeezed out of the GPU: The computer's BIOS offers an overclocking option for the graphics core and its memory. It should be possible to increase frame rates by 5% to 10% on average. Overclocking is always done at the user's own risk.

The matte 15.6-inch display (4K, IPS, 60 Hz) scores points with high brightness, good contrast, HDR, stable viewing angles, excellent color reproduction, and good color-space coverage. In addition, Free Sync is supported. There is room for improvement when it comes to response times, though.

The built-in 71 Wh battery is good for real-world runtimes of 7 hours. Positive: The battery can be charged using a universal USB-C power adapter (45 watts minimum) - both USB-C ports (USB 3.2 Gen 2) support Power Delivery (and DisplayPort via USB-C). Therefore, the bulky 230-watt power adapter doesn't necessarily have to be carried around.

Further information and many benchmark results are available in our review of the Lenovo Legion S7 15ACH6.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
