Lenovo's Legion Phone Duel is a good gaming smartphone that can actually be used very smoothly thanks to its 144 Hz display and is future-proof for games. The positioning of the main camera and the flash is unusual; both are in the center of the smartphone. The rear camera offers two lenses: The main camera with 64 megapixels, and a wide-angle lens.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is probably the best gaming phone we've tested in 2020. While most phones designed for mobile gamers have issues when it comes to features and performance outside of gaming, this is as good a day-to-day smartphone as it is a gaming device. The Phone Duel price is also a touch on the high side for a gaming phone – it's one of the priciest phones in that market. Still, it's great for gaming and is a valiant first effort for the Lenovo Legion phone arm.
