Lenovo V15 Gen 2 AMD review: Hexa-core machine with a caveat

Technology

Display from the dark ages. Lenovo now equips the V15 G2 with a hexa-core processor from AMD but still keeps the Full HD resolution in its TN display with weak viewing angles. Our test will show whether the affordable entry-level device is still good for doing some regular work.

With the V15 Gen 2 AMD, Lenovo offers an affordable entry-level laptop that is the direct successor to the V15 ADA. The V15 series should be distinguished from the business class, which includes laptops like the Lenovo ThinkBook 16p, and from the slightly higher-quality office midrange, which Lenovo represents by the IdeaPad 5, for example.

In terms of the equipment, our test unit ranges in the middle of the field with its hexa-core AMD Ryzen 5 5500U Zen 2 Lucienne CPU, integrated Radeon RX Vega 7, 8 GB of RAM (expandable), 512-GB PCIe-3 NVMe SSD, and 1080p TN display. This configuration is available for about 600 Euros (~$653) or often for even less on sale. Other models are available with a Ryzen 7 5700U octa-core or Ryzen 3 5300U quad-core CPU and with up to 16 GB RAM preinstalled. According to the spec sheet, alternatively there is also an IPS panel available, but in practice such a model is hard to find.

In terms of Lenovo in-house devices, the IdeaPad 3 would be the most likely competitor. Other affordable entry-level devices include the HP 14s/15s, the HP 255 G7, the Asus Vivobook 15 and Asus ExpertBook B1, Dell’s Inspiron 15 3511, the Acer Aspire 5 A515, and Fujitsu’s Lifebook A3510. You can also add other comparison devices below each section.

The case of the Lenovo V15 Gen 2 is made of robust thermoplastics that hardly heat up even on hot days. The roughened surface offers a good grip but hardly prevents fingerprints from showing. The color is significantly darker than the light gray of the predecessor.

While the base unit is stiff and cannot be warped, pressure on the lid or attempts of warping it leads to changes in the image. The gaps are evenly spaced and there are no sharp edges. The keyboard top is pleasantly stable, which is not a given with entry-level devices. The hinge that goes across the whole width does a good job, but the lid still wobbles when you change the angle. It can be opened up to a maximum of 180 degrees.

Lenovo’s IdeaPad 3, HP’s 15s, and Fujitsu’s LifeBook A3510 turn out worse here. Only the Asus ExpertBook B1 is more robust. Compared to the predecessor, the V15 is now more compact and about 200 grams (~7 oz) lighter. The screen-to-body ratio is a good 88%. At only 1.64 kg (~3.6 lb), it is slightly lighter than the 1.7 kg (~3.75 lb) specified by Lenovo, being the lightest device in our comparison.

Maintenance: In order to get inside, you have to remove 11 Philips screws and unclip some hooks with a prying tool. The Wi-Fi module can be replaced and likewise the battery and M.2 SSD, and you can also add a second SSD in the 2.5-inch format. There is also a RAM slot for a module with a capacity of up to 32 GB. There are either 4 + 4 GB or 8 + 8 GB build in, each with one of the modules soldered in. The Ethernet port is new. One of the USB-A ports has been replaced with the new USB-C port, but there is no SD card reader anymore.

Qualcomm’s Wi-Fi 5 card delivers a reception performance that is good for its class at about 0.5 Gbit/s. While the model does not have WWAN, there is Bluetooth 5.0. The 0.3-MP webcam (640 x 480) is even worse than the usual 720p cameras that are miserable anyways. But at least there is a shutter to deactivate it. There is no fingerprint reader and no Windows Hello either. There is no bloatware besides a trial version of McAfee. Most other affordable devices look much worse in this regard.

As typical for Lenovo, the keyboard can be called very good, even if it doesn’t reach the top-tier status of the in-house ThinkPad brand. The keys are full-size, but for the sake of the number pad, some keys are smaller. The distance between the keys is very good, ensuring accurate typing.

The stroke is short but sufficient, and the pressure point is clearly noticeable. The key stroke feels crisp, and the keys offer a medium resistance. The keyboard doesn’t bend down while typing, and the typing noise remains moderate. Unfortunately, the “Insert” function now shares its key, but “Delete” still has its separate key. “Home” and “End” also only share a key. The new color leads to a higher contrast, resulting in better readability, but this still doesn’t make up for the lack of a keyboard illumination. Lenovo does provide some splash protection, though.

The slightly smallish touchpad is shifted to one side. It is responsive, and fingers can easily slide across its plastic surface. The integrated mouse keys have a short to medium stroke and feel crisp. However, the left click clatters slightly in our test unit.

technology

The 15.6-inch, matte display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels but unfortunately uses the antiquated TN technology, which leads to significantly reduced viewing angles, in some cases limiting the work performance. While the contrast is almost twice as high as specified and as that of the predecessor, it is still insufficient to make black look like black.

The whole display is covered by a gray veil, colors appear very pale, and with color space coverage values of 58% sRGB and 40% AdobeRGB, the color reproduction is anything but accurate. The blue tint that we measure doesn’t improve things, and you don’t really want to look at the DeltaE values. At an average of 231 cd/m², the brightness is also rather meager, but the brightness distribution of 84% is okay. 

All the competitors of the manufacturer have understood that TN displays shouldn’t be used in a laptop, so we have a clear reason for complaints here. While there is also an option for an IPS panel according to the data sheet, in practice such a model will be very hard to find. In addition, we also measure PWM flickering at a frequency of 66 Hz at brightness levels below 70%.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession – a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.

Screen flickering / PWM detected 66 Hz ≤ 70 % brightness setting
technology

The display backlight flickers at 66 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 70 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 66 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 22069 (minimum: 5 – maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, the usability of the matte display is limited with its brightness of only 232 cd/m², and you can only use it in the shade.

Our test configuration offers a very powerful AMD Ryzen 5 5500U hexa-core processor that includes a RX Vega 7 iGPU. Alternative models have either an even more powerful octa-core or a more affordable quad-core processor. The CPUs are based on the Zen 2 architecture and not on Zen 3 like the Ryzen 5 5600U and 5650U, for example.

In terms of working memory, we have 8 GB of DDR4-3200 in dual-channel mode, 4 GB of which are soldered in. The RAM slot can be expanded up to a maximum of 32 GB. Other configurations offer 8 GB of soldered in plus 8 GB of slotted RAM.

AMD’s Ryzen 5 5500U hexa-core processor has a clock speed between 2.1 and 4.0 GHz. It consumes 25 watts at 6 x 3.7 GHz for only a second. Even though the cooling should also be able to constantly maintain this, the design is probably prioritized for a quieter fan operation. You can still get more than sufficient performance at a constant 6 x 3.1 GHz with a consumption of 21 watts. There is no (!) performance drop after a 30-minute Cinebench loop, and the performance is also not reduced in battery mode.

The HP 14s with the Ryzen 5 5500 is throttled slightly due to the smaller case. The Ryzen 3 5300U in the IdeaPad 3 is surpassed by “only” 20%, which should also make the Ryzen 3 in the V15 G2 very interesting for those who want to save some money. The Intel CPUs have no chance in our comparison, and the predecessor with its AMD Athlon Gold 3150U is also surpassed even by a factor of three. Only AMD’s octa-core in the Acer Aspire 5 is even faster.

Our test unit performs at the top of the test field and the everyday performance also reflects this. Even browsing the web with multiple tabs while playing a 4K video and working in parallel with a video cutting application did not lead to any delays in the operations at all. The only thing is that the performance doesn’t fit at all with the outdated display, which also reduces the overall impression here.

The latencies are too high to allow for real-time video and audio processing without delays. The main culprits responsible for this are the network driver and the Direct-X driver. Most devices in our comparison field fare even worse in this regard.

The Western Digital SN530 with 512 GB of storage is an M.2 NVMe SSD in the 2242 format and delivers the transfer rates we expect for PCIe 3 x 4. The V15 G2 also leads our comparison field here. There is also a 2.5-inch slot, but you will need the corresponding cable to use it. The M.2 slot will also fit longer PCIe SSDs (2280).

technology GPU-Z RX Vega 7
GPU-Z RX Vega 7

In terms of the GPU, the successor to the Lenovo V15 also performs almost three times as fast as the RX Vega 3. In the synthetic benchmarks, the AMD RX Vega 7 also leaves almost all the other direct competitors behind, not the least because of the dual-channel mode of the RAM. Intel’s Xe G7 (80EUs) has no chance here.

However, the Vega 7 is still only usable in a limited sense for playing modern games, and low to medium detail levels are needed. The gaming performance is not reduced in battery mode.

The fan already starts running under low CPU load of about 15%, for example when downloading via Steam at 50 Mbit/s. On the other hand, the noise level stays extremely low at this time and can even be completely avoided by changing the performance mode to “More efficient.” Using that, the device runs with completely passive cooling even under full CPU load, while about two thirds of the performance still remain available.

In the “Best performance” mode, the fan only starts revving up audibly under combined load, for example when gaming. But at a maximum of 34.5 dB, the noise level even stays within limits here as well, particularly subjectively. The comparison devices get significantly louder, except for the ExpertBook B1. We do not notice any high-frequency noises such as coil whine.

technology Stress test (Prime95)
Stress test (Prime95)

Even under combined load, no place on the laptop feels even hand warm. Since the fan vent points to the back, you don’t notice any warm air blowing, for example when using the mouse. According to our measurements, the comparison devices remain even cooler, but this doesn’t really matter anymore.

In the hour-long stress test, the CPU temperature stays at 57 °C (135 °F), and the fans are relatively quiet. If we also consider that the CPU stays slightly below its basic clock speed (2 GHz), we can conclude that Lenovo could have also tolerated higher temperatures and a higher TDP here. During idle operation, HWInfo shows a CPU temperature of 37 °C (99 °F).

65-Watt power supply

A standby consumption of 0.3 watts promises a long time before you have to recharge the unused device. While the idle consumption looks a bit high, the battery life we measure during idle operation indicates a much lower consumption. The maximum consumption is 40.6 watts, so that the 65-Watt power supply is sufficiently sized.

38-Wh battery

Lasting for 8 hours in the WLAN test, where a browser script runs in balanced performance mode at 150 cd/m² brightness, the battery life is surprisingly good, if you consider the small 38-Wh battery. With this, the runtime is double that of the predecessor. Under full load, the Lenovo V15 Gen 2 AMD still lasts slightly longer than 1 hour. The V15 G2 can be completely recharged within about 100 minutes.

Pros

+ very fast hexa-core with Vega-7 iGPU

+ good input devices

+ acceptable battery life

+ light and compact 15-incher

+ quiet and cool

+ expandable with second SSD + RAM slot

+ Gbit LAN + USB-C…

Cons

…without Power Delivery & DisplayPort

display lid could be stiffer

dark and pale display with poor contrasts

TN panel without stable viewing angles

no SD card reader anymore

technology Testing the Lenovo V15 Gen 2 AMD. Test unit provided by NBB.com (notebooksbilliger.de)
Testing the Lenovo V15 Gen 2 AMD. Test unit provided by NBB.com (notebooksbilliger.de)

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.

The Lenovo V15 G2 AMD is an affordable and fast office device, but with its TN display, it isn’t usable for everyone.

Its weaknesses include the stone age display with weak viewing angles and contrast, low brightness, and inaccurate color reproduction. In addition to a LAN port, there is now also USB-C, but Power Delivery and DisplayPort are not supported here. The SD card reader is completely left out. Those who are looking for similar strengths in an office device but only with a much better display should take a look at the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45, which is only about 50 to 100 Euros (~$54-$109) more expensive at 649 Euros (~$706) – depending on current sales. The Asus ExpertBook B1 for currently 666 Euros (~$725) is even better, offering a brighter IPS display and even better workmanship with similar features as the V15 Gen 2 but with a lower performance.

The Lenovo V15 G2 AMD is available in a fairly similar configuration (Ryzen 5 5500U, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD) for example from Amazon for $557.

My fascination with computers began as a preschooler. After Windows 95 and the 486, I quickly got into the Internet, which has now completely taken hold of me – and never quite let go. At the age of 11 I built my own PC, but since 2016 I have completely switched to notebooks: Because it allows me to have my entire PC with me everywhere as a traveling freelancer. Still, I’m not a full-time N3rd and passionately play drums, lift weights and love being in our Finnish log cabin!

Having worked as a programmer for 20 years (medical devices, AI, data management systems), I’ve been following the computer scene for many years and especially enjoy finding out about new technology advances. Originally from Germany but living in the US, I’ve been working as a translator more recently, with Notebookcheck allowing me to combine my interest in new devices and translation. Other interests include Buddhism, spending time in Tibetan monasteries, and translating ancient Tibetan texts.
