Lenovo Legion Go Vs OneXPlayer X1

Time to compare 2 of the most popular handheld gaming devices. In this article, I will be comparing two handheld gaming devices - the Lenovo Legion Go and the OneXPlayer X1. I will cover the design, pricing, game performance, and give an in-depth analysis of the pros and cons of both devices.

First, let's talk about the design of these devices. Both devices have a similar tablet-like design with controllers that attach to them. The Lenovo Legion Go is smaller in size and has a built-in kickstand, while the OneXPlayer X1 comes with a backplate that acts like a kickstand. The Legion Go feels more comfortable to hold and has a trackpad for easy navigation, whereas the OneXPlayer X1 has a bigger screen real estate, which is better for productivity. The OneXPlayer X1 has a front-facing camera and a fingerprint scanner for easy device access. However, the Legion Go is more durable than the OneXPlayer X1.

Moving on to the specs, the OneXPlayer X1 has an Intel Ultra processor chip and the Lenovo Legion Go has an AMD chip. While both devices run Windows, the Legion Go outperforms the OneXPlayer X1 in terms of gaming performance. AMD pushes out driver updates faster, making newer games work on their devices. The OneXPlayer X1 has had issues with the Ultra 7 Intel graphics card, which has affected its performance.

Speaking of, let's talk about game performance. The Lenovo Legion Go has better gaming performance than the OneXPlayer X1. It runs games smoothly and consistently without any hiccups or stutters. In contrast, the OneXPlayer X1 struggles with game performance due to the issues with the Intel graphics card. The Legion Go has a custom interface called Legion Space, which makes gaming easier. It has a Turbo button that brings up a menu where you can adjust TDP, performance, vibration, and fan mode. The OneXPlayer X1 has its own interface, which also has options for adjusting performance.

When it comes to pricing, the Lenovo Legion Go is more affordable than the OneXPlayer X1. The entry-level model of the Legion Go costs $699, while the OneXPlayer X1 costs $1,100. The Legion Go is the winner in terms of best bang for your buck, with better gaming performance, a more comfortable design, and a lower price point.

In terms of accessories, the OneXPlayer X1 has an attachable keyboard that has a backlight and a mouse cursor. This is great for productivity and makes typing notes easier. The Lenovo Legion Go does not have an attachable keyboard, but you can still use a Bluetooth keyboard to type notes.

To sum up, the Lenovo Legion Go is the better choice for gaming performance, affordability, and durability. However, the OneXPlayer X1 has its advantages in terms of a bigger screen real estate, front-facing camera, and fingerprint scanner. It is also better for productivity with its attachable keyboard. Ultimately, it depends on what you're looking for in a handheld gaming device.
