To maximize responsiveness and accuracy, the device’s controllers feature hall effect joysticks so that the joystick drift is eliminated and there will only be minimal dead zones.

There’s also RGB lighting present in Legion Go, especially on the power button, which changes colors to indicate the user-selectable fan mode.
