Lenovo Legion 2 Pro Review
Lenovo has decided to delight many fans of mobile gaming by releasing a new unique smartphone. Like many competitors of this device, the company decided to install the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
Today it is the best option for gaming smartphones, although it has problems with high temperatures during intensive work. It is this problem with chips that companies like Xiaomi and OnePlus have recently faced. Users complained that when playing games with high demands, the smartphones of these companies heated up to high temperatures, which made the device extremely inconvenient to use, it literally burned their hands. And therefore, the main feature of Lenovo’s new product is its complex cooling system.
After all, Legion 2 pro was equipped with two cooling turbines and fourteen temperature sensors in different parts of the device. To make it comfortable for gamers to spend a lot of time playing games, sensors regulate the operation of the fans and monitor not only the temperature of the main components but also those parts of the smartphone that touch your hands. Few manufacturers take such a risky step. After all, many are afraid of breakdowns in the active cooling system, high noise levels, and rapid battery discharge. However, engineers at Lenovo have a lot of experience in this, thanks to the production of laptops over the years. We will soon find out if the company managed to cope with these difficulties in the smartphone.
To date, the developers claim a fan noise level of 25 dB, which is quite satisfactory. It is not yet known whether the 5500 mAh battery will be enough for such a smartphone, but its fast discharge can be compensated for by no less fast charging. Lenovo has promised that its quick charge will charge the Legion 2 pro in just 25 minutes. For such charging, a whole two USB ports will be needed.
Like many gaming smartphones, the device is equipped with additional buttons, but they are located not only on the sides but also on the back, where there is also an RGB backlit logo that you can customize to your liking. As befits a gaming smartphone, the company has equipped it with a gorgeous 6.92-inch AMOLED display. For a pleasant gaming experience, the display supports 144Hz and the touchscreen is highly sensitive.
Using a successful solution from many companies, Lenovo also decided to hide the front-facing camera, making it retractable so as not to take up space on the bezel. Its resolution is 44 megapixels, and when activated, it slides out from the right side of the device. The main camera turned out to be quite high quality for a gaming device and has a resolution of 64 megapixels. Next to it are the standard two cameras for wide-angle and macro photography.
Overall, the Legion 2 pro feels heavy and bulky, which comes as no surprise for such a cooling system and powerful components.
Prices for this gaming smartphone start at $565 for the most common model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. And for the most powerful version of the device, you will have to pay $ 915, but you will get 18 GB of RAM and 512 GB of memory, which will definitely make you feel the difference.
