The Lenovo V15 is a budget-friendly laptop with decent performance for general use, thanks to its AMD Ryzen 5 processor and 16GB of RAM. It comes with a large storage capacity and has a 15.6-inch display, which is suitable for everyday tasks and multitasking. However, the display uses a TN panel, which is not as color-accurate or bright as IPS panels, making it less ideal for tasks requiring precise color reproduction, like photo editing. It's relatively portable but may not be the lightest option available. With a moderate battery capacity, it can handle basic tasks well but may not be suitable for intensive gaming or engineering software that requires a higher-performing GPU. It offers a good port selection, including USB-C and HDMI, which can be useful for connecting peripherals and external displays. The keyboard includes a number pad, but it does not have a backlit keyboard, which could be a consideration if you often work in dimly lit environments. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Operating Noise:
4.6
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
Portability:
4.3
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
General Use:
4.2
PerfectRec’s General Use Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for general productivity, web browsing, streaming, video calls, and running a wide variety of apps and programs. The most important factors in this score include CPU performance, amount of RAM, screen quality, storage, and battery life. Keyboard quality, speaker quality, low fan noise, heat management, and to a lesser extent webcam quality are all moderately important factors for this score.
Battery Life:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Build Quality:
3.8
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Engineering & Design:
3.6
The Lenovo V15 has a capable AMD Ryzen CPU and integrated Vega GPU, which are good for engineering, but its TN screen may not offer the color accuracy or viewing angles desired for design work. Additionally, while it has decent portability and keyboard quality, its speaker quality and build are not as strong, which might be fine for design but less ideal when presenting work or using the laptop in client meetings.
Keyboard Quality:
3.5
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Gaming, 3D & AI:
3.3
The Lenovo V15 has a Vega 7 GPU integrated with an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U processor, which provides moderate gaming capabilities, but it may not handle the latest or most graphics-intensive games very well. Additionally, its screen has a standard refresh rate of 60Hz, which is fine for casual gaming, but dedicated gamers usually prefer higher refresh rates for smoother visuals.

Marvin Gollor | April 2022
"The strengths of the Lenovo V15 G2 AMD lie in its expandability of the RAM and allowing you to use two SSDs, in its performance that goes beyond everyday applications thanks to AMD's hexa-core CPU and Vega-7 iGPU, in its good keyboard, and its relatively robust case. In addition, the battery life of the office laptop is also acceptable, and the device stays cool and relatively quiet."
