Lenovo Legion Go
As a reminder, the Legion Go is Lenovo’s gaming handheld console that is set to compete against the Steam Deck or the ROG Ally. Among the highlights of Lenovo’s gaming handheld include an 8.8-inch QHD+ micro OLED panel, an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme chip, and a 49.2Wh battery.
What’s unique to Lenovo’s take on it though are the two detachable controllers with Hall effect joysticks. There’s more to the convenience of the detachable controllers though, the company has highlighted an FPS mode wherein you use the right joystick like a vertical mouse.

Ram found his love and appreciation for writing in 2015 having started in the gaming and esports sphere for GG Network. He would then transition to focus more on the world of tech which has also began his journey into learning more about this world. That said though, he still has the mentality of "as long as it works" for his personal gadgets.
