Hello guys, how are you?
I got the ideapad 320 on the 24th of last March for 14,000 Egyptian Pounds (which is 800 USD).
Specs: Intel i7 1.8G, 8G RAM, 2T HDD, 4GB AMD Radeon 530M GPU
The problem is that recently I've noticed that the battery barely stays for 3 hours.
What I usually do is browisng (Chrome) and some 2D designing (Photoshop & Illustrator).
I'm new to laptops, I've always been a PC guy, so I don't know is this normal or do I need to worry? And in case this is not normal, what should I do?

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Checking on the reviews similar to this saying on average video rendering and basic usage would appear battery life to 2.5 -3 hours usage. Similar discussion here although not specific with model type would also have same average.
There are several factors that can cause faster battery draining but observing some tips here aside from lowering brightness to 80 % will help. If you do have problems like it barely reach 1 hour of battery usage then you may need to call technical support for intervention.
Hope this helps answer your query.
