So, connected they work fine, zero issue. However I didn’t buy the Legion Go to play stood on a train, the main reason was the detachable controllers and kickstand, so at lunch I can kick back and relax at work.
The issue is though, whilst detached I can’t go 15-20 minutes without the controllers disconnecting. Sometimes it’s even within the 2 minutes range. It’s like if you walk too far away with them or you don’t use them for a few minutes. But I’m not even a meter away, sat at a table or have the unit on my chest. The problem is specially worst with the right controller. Sometimes this disconnection is preceded by extreme input delay, like pressing X to do an attack or open a chest only to fine 2-3 seconds latter it actually happens.
I’ve tried factory resetting the controllers with the pin hole, doing the whole L1, L2 + L3 and R1, R2 + R3 reset, drivers are all the latest from Lenovos website, batteries are all charged + I’ve done a static discharge, problem only happens in wireless mode and it’s present in both Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and Stardew Valley, also happens in all power/cooling modes (Quiet, Performance, Custom etc).
I’m thinking I have a faulty unit, happens sometimes. But I’m interested to see if anyone has had the same issues. I’ve read up a lot and found a lot of talk of dead zones and some gyro things, but not the connection.
(other added point, anyone getting very poor battery life? I know meaty games don’t expect too much, but I mean Stardew valley on quiet mode got me an hour before I needed to connect to some juice, My Steamdeck basically has all day with Stardew Valley).
