Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A13 4G A137F
Samsung's Galaxy A13 4G is now also available with a MediaTek SoC that not only provides more power but also changes other minor details of Samsung's inexpensive smartphone. That is enough reason for us to take a closer look at the new version in our review.

The previous Galaxy A12 has been kicking around for a while now, and it’s certainly a bit outdated by modern standards. It didn’t initially receive a recommendation in our review, but with 2022 updates to the cameras, design and software, the Galaxy A13 was perfectly positioned to finally make an appearance on our best budget smartphones list. Except Samsung really missed the mark with this one. Its decision to opt for one of the weakest mobile chipsets we’ve tested in quite some time is a baffling one, and the lack of 5G connectivity is a glaring omission as well. Neither the extra ultrawide camera nor the 1080p screen are enough of an incentive to mask the fact that we’re getting the short end of the stick. It might be dirt cheap, but don’t let Samsung fool you – you can do better for the price.

70.77%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
