Lenovo Legion Phone 2’s quirky design is not that durable Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2

The new Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 is as polarizing as smartphones get, with the entire design meant to handle the phone horizontally and components placed in the centre. However, that might just be its weakest point too – figuratively and literally.

Unveiled on April 8, the Lenovo Legion Phone 2 is one of the most over-the-top smartphones of the season — gaming or otherwise — with a side-ways pop-up camera, cooling fans, multiple ultrasonic triggers for gaming, a 144Hz display, dual stereo speakers and RGB lighting. Similar to the Asus ROG Phone 5, it has a redesigned internal structure with battery cells on the top and bottom, and the chipset and cameras in the centre. As ingenious as that is, it brings in other challenges such as lower durability.
