Lenovo has confirmed that they are working on the Legion Go 2 gaming laptop, which is considered the successor to the original Legion Go, which was and still is an impressive device.

However, there are some areas where the company could further improve with the Legion Go 2.

The 8.8-inch IPS LCD screen is one of the largest gaming laptop screens to date, inheriting from the Oneexplayer 1X, boasting a fast 144Hz refresh rate. The touchscreen capabilities are user-friendly.

The 2560 × 1600 resolution also offers extreme flexibility, allowing for a half-size display to enhance performance without sacrificing much in the aesthetics department, even in games that do not support AMD’s Fidelity FX Supersolution resolution upscaling technology.

However, despite the fantastic screen specifications of the Legion Go, there are still some things that need improvement.

Most importantly, Lenovo needs to add support for variable refresh rate (VRR) to the Legion Go 2. Without VRR or FreeSync, gaming at low frame rates, where gaming laptops usually operate, can be extremely frustrating due to screen tearing. Lenovo should also use a native horizontal display in the Legion Go 2.

As far as gaming laptop control schemes go, the Legion Go falls somewhere between the Nintendo Switch and the Steam Deck but doesn’t fully commit to either camp.

The removable control elements in the Legion Go serve only a simplistic purpose beyond the sleek FPS mode. There’s no way to use the two controllers as separate controllers for multiplayer gaming, as is the case with the Nintendo Switch, and there’s no way to dock the controllers to the Legion Go when detached from the tablet.

Implementing these features, or at least one of them, would make the Legion Go 2 more versatile than it currently is.

Regarding the control scheme, the Legion Go 2 deserves to have a second touch panel on the left side of the screen if Lenovo hopes to take anyone’s attention away from the touchpad for gaming.

For example, Ayaneo took this route, offering dual touch panels on the large-sized Kun gaming laptop.

Like all laptops on the market, the Legion Go has its own set of software, and like all other laptops, Lenovo’s software solutions are somewhat lacking.

The Legion Go from Lenovo is designed to work around Legion Space, which seems to be universally scorned by those who are forced to use it.

Most complaints stem from poor performance and lack of focus. Lenovo seems to want to do too much with Legion Space.

The company should focus on streamlining Legion Space, or any software solution it plans to use in the Legion Go, into a simple software suite for essentials.
