Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14APH8

87.7% Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14APH8 laptop review: 120 Hz 2.5K OLED sweet spot | Notebookcheck
The Legion Slim 5 14 is the smallest and most travel-friendly Legion laptop yet and its OLED display is certainly a standout feature not found on most other gaming laptops. However, it's missing a key feature that gamers ought to be aware of.
90% Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 8 (14.5-Inch) Review
Source: PC Mag English
The 14.5-inch Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 8 impresses on all fronts, especially value, keeping pace with or outperforming more costly competitors like the Alienware x14 R2 and the Razer Blade 14 in our benchmarks. It makes no major compromises, not even battery life, which isn't something we can say about MSI's Stealth 14 Studio. A beautiful OLED screen, a comfortable keyboard and touchpad, a wide enough array of ports, and admirable build quality solidify its appeal and earn it a well-deserved Editors' Choice award for gamers seeking an easily portable system.

90% Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14 (2023) review: The 14-inch gaming laptop to beat
Source: XDA Developers English
Due to how close the 14- and 16-inch Slim 5 models come in terms of performance, I'd take the more compact laptop every time. Not only is it easier to carry around despite an all-metal build, its streamlined design is more appealing, and it has that gorgeous 2.8K OLED display. This is one of the best laptops that I've tested this year, and it should be given a strong consideration if you'd like to keep your gaming laptop well within the limits of portable.

90% Lenovo Legion 5 Slim 14 review: another win for affordable gaming laptops
Source: Techradar English
Lenovo has been putting out tons of gaming laptops at different price points. The Lenovo Legion 5 Slim 14 is another one of its more affordable entries that balances a sleek metal look, beautiful display, and excellent overall performance. However, it doesn't play too nice with ray tracing and the battery life is inconsistent.

14.50":

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.
