So far it has been working well! Everything is silky smooth and functional.

Test Checklist

I'd suggest checking out a few items that didn't really work propoerly on this legion 5i

  • Lenovo Vantage application: always crashed upon opening. I had to reinstall it to get it working again. This issue is also documented on user support forum. Not sure what is causing it exactly.

My Test Cases

  1. Booting up React dev server. Initial startup is so much faster than my older Dell.
  2. Using multiple Chrome tabs (actually I use Vivaldi - a very customizable Chrome). It can handle over 20+ tabs just fine while my Dell already struggles with 5-10 tabs.
  3. Destiny 2 gameplay. Gameplay is smooth and no jittering frames.


So far, everything is working fine and super fast!

  • Switching between multiple music video works faster compared to the sluggish speed on my Dell XPS 13.
  • I can open multiple tabs on Vivaldi without experiencing delays or lags.
  • Apps are super responsive upon sleeping and waking up. No more delays in interactions.
  • Destiny 2 is booting up just fine. The gameplay is smooth as well.


That said, there are a few things I noticed while using the Legion 5i

  • Fan noise is super loud. No need to go to the airport when I've got a mini airport simulation at home with kind of fan noise.
  • Laptop heat. Extended GPU usage will make the laptop hotter than usual. But it can't beat the magma-heat from my old Dell laptop.
  • The Lenovo Vantage froze everytime it was opened. But i managed to fix it by reinstalling the app.

For my initial tests and usage, the Lenovo Legion 5i is doing much better than my older Dell XPS 13 already :)
