Design & Display
If we look at its body, the Lenovo V155’s body is made of plastic with a rough finish on the base and lid. However, the company has done some amazing wok as there are no sharp edges or uneven clearances.
The device features a 15.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. It delivers relatively low brightness which is a good factor for users with sensitive eyes.
The Lenovo V155 has a full-layout keyboard with the NumberPad section. If you look at the keyboard, it offers big keycaps with solid key travel. Another good thing about its keyboard is that its keys are noticeably quiet. This is a good thing for those who often use a laptop in libraries or don’t want to annoy people while commuting.
Lenovo has equipped the V155 with enough ports for easy connectivity. The laptop has two USB Type-A 3.0 ports, an HDMI, a GigabitLAN and a 3.5mm audio jack on the left side. Whereas, it has covered slot for a drive on the right side. It lacks a USB Type-C connection and a card reader.
Lenovo V155 is equipped with AMD’s Ryzen 3-3200U processor that run up to eight threads at once. Its 4GB RAM ensures that you get a smooth performance while working on casual tasks. Also, the V155 features a 256GB SSD hard drive and AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics.
The laptop delivers a decent performance while performing different tasks. It shows high-end processing than its competitors without any micro-stutters. There were no delays when we tried to access data files and it ran the applications quickly.
The V155 features a 36Wh battery and Lenovo claims that it can run more than 5 hours with a single charge. Although the claim is true to some extent, its battery timing varies depending on its usage.
The laptop does offer more than 5.5 hours of battery timing during web browsing. However, the timing reduced to around 5 hours when we played videos. On average, Lenovo V155 delivers around 4.5 hours of battery timing.
Temperature & Noise
We found the Ryzen 5-3500U an efficient CPU under extreme conditions and load. It sustained high frequencies for a long period at formidable temperatures. Whereas, we found its fan hardly audible even under heavy load. Although the noise level increased a little, it can be ignored even if you are sitting in a quiet place.
Lenovo V155 is a great choice for those who are looking for an affordable device. This is a solid business laptop for people with limited demands. It has got the looks but its body is made of durable plastic. Plus, it delivers decent performance, thanks to its high-end hardware that comes at a reasonable price.
