Lenovo Legion 5 15IMH05H Review: Excellent power delivery and good battery life

019

The Lenovo Legion 5 with its combination of a Core-i5-10300H processor with a GeForce-RTX-2060 graphics chip display all current computer games smoothly onto its 120-Hz display. Most games can be played in Full-HD resolution and high to maximum quality settings. The CPU and GPU also manage to keep up their high clock rates over a long time.

The Legion 5 allows users to activate and deactivate the integrated GPU.

The integrated UHD Graphics 630 can be activated and deactivated with the click of a button. Battery life is very good when the iGPU is activated but doesn’t last quite as long if the demanding GeForce RTX 2060 is at work.  

Should the storage in the 512-GB SSD run out, users can expand the device either with a 2.5-inch drive or a second NVMe SSD (M.2 2280). Inserting the storage device requires opening the device, which doesn’t have a maintenance hatch.

The Full-HD IPS display offers stable viewing angles, a matte surface, acceptable response times, a good contrast ratio and decent colors. The maximum brightness and color space coverage are too low, however. We expect more from a $1250 notebook.

The port selection is good for the most part, although we do miss a Thunderbolt 3 port. This would enable users to connect external GPUs, for example. The Legion only has one Type C USB 3.2 Gen 1 port which supports DisplayPort via USB C.
