Lenovo Legion Y90 Display test
Source: DxOMark English
The Lenovo Legion Y90, marketed mainly as a gaming phone, provided a below-average display performance overall and in its Premium segment. While the screen’s proper brightness made indoor use of the device comfortable, using the device outdoors showed the display’s limitations. Outdoor readability was very poor, and the display was unreadable in the sunlight. The Lenovo Legion Y90 is not the ideal device to watch HDR10 videos because of the display’s low brightness and poor color rendering. However, one bright spot for the Legion Y90 display was its touch performance, which helped to provide a very good video-gaming experience. Video gamers are likely to appreciate the display’s touch latency, which was clocked at a fast 41 milliseconds during testing, its good touch smoothness and its accuracy.

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.
