First of all, if you want to use Lyx you've got to know more or less how Latex works, since you've got to know things like what is a class, a package, how to manage babel, etc.
Second: it's true you can import your .tex files and run the pdf conversion, obtainig almost the same result than in Texstudio.
Now, the enviroment. You'll see something known as WYSIWYM (what you see is what you mean) that is not plain text, neither the final view . It's supossed to be easier than the usual tex window in your Latex enviroment.
Well, I think that could be true ten years ago, but now you have very clever enviroments for workin with latex, software like texStudio allows you things like find, correct, wizards, autofill predictive commands, etc.
And, if we talk about the capital question, the equations, I'd rather prefer type a Latex equation than a graphic editor like ms words. Of course Lyx allows you to type Latex commands. But the real question is Will you use a graphic equation editor any more? In my case now and ten thousand times no.
So, I think Lyx is a very good software, but ten years later
