Legion Y520 has a Full HD LED Backlit Anti-glare IPS Slim Display with a matte fnish which is good and reduce the reﬂectiveness. The contrast ratio and black levels are the best and it produces rich colors and has the good amount of brightness levels. I enjoyed playing dark theme games on it as well as the black is deep delivering awesome image clarity. The vivid 1920×1080 resolution screen is among the best displays we have used in gaming laptops with wide viewing angle. The device allows gamers to custom tune audio with the 2 x 2W Harman speakers and Dolby Audio Premium for an outstanding audio quality even without headphones. The trackpad has a trapezoidal-shape which designed in such a way that it seems to merge into the laptop body and looks really nice. It’s comfortable enough and accuracy is not a problem at all.The left side of the laptop comprises the Ethernet port, USB 2.0, 3.5mm audio socket, pinhole reset button to reset the BIOS and ﬂat power connector. While on the right side it uses the space for HDMI output, 2-USB 3.0 ports, Type-C 3.0 port and SSD card slot. The good thing is the heatsink fans vent is directed towards the back side of the laptop. The Y520 features an Intel Core i7 7700HQ CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX1050Ti 4 GB graphics card, 16 GB RAM, a 128 GB PCIe SSD, a 1 TB HDD and a 15.6-inch 1080p display. 2x 2-Watt speakers provide the audio.The Y520 was designed to fight heat with strategically engineered fans and vents. Located close to the graphics card and processors, this fan system keeps hot air moving while rear-placed thermal vents remove that heat. Furthermore, you can use the Extreme Cooling shortcut within Lenovo Nerve Sense for gaming firefights that require an additional push of cooling.
The laptop hybrid combination of storage 128GB of PCIe SSD +1TB HDD, ideal for reducing boot-up time and in-game loading.
The Lenovo Legion Y520 handled all the games quite easily. While playing these games we didn’t notice any visible performance lag. With about 100 fps it was able to render the graphics beautifully. To go beyond, we ran all four games at the same time and played one while running rest in the background.
Still, there was no issue with the performance.While using with the laptop, we got about more than 5 hours of battery backup with moderate usage. But when we played some
intensive games, it lasted for about 1 hours. In our video loop test, the battery was able to play video for about 2 hours and 23 minutes over Wi-Fi with full brightness and volume.
