Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A13 4G

76.5% Samsung Galaxy A13 4G Smartphone review – Generous upgrades for Samsung's budget phone | Notebookcheck
At below 200 USD, the Samsung Galaxy A13 4G offers a Full HD screen and Wi-Fi 5. However, it faces strong competition. Are the improvements compared to last year's model enough to make it competitive?

The Galaxy A13 should be a slam dunk for Samsung. Anyone looking for a budget phone will see the brand, the low price and think it’s a safe bet. But with such poor performance compared to certain rivals, it isn’t. As long as you’re happy to accept that this isn’t going to feel like a fast device and you’re tempted by the good main camera and Samsung OneUI, then at the discounted prices you’ll find from retailers, it’s just about worth buying. But for the Galaxy A13’s RRP, you can get far better performance as well as luxuries such as a 90Hz AMOLED screen, making it difficult to recommend it over the aforementioned Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 and Moto G31. There are trade-offs to make with any cheap phone, so be sure to read our reviews and our roundup of the best budget phones before making your final choice.

60% Samsung Galaxy A13 review: Slow and steady loses the race
Source: Expert Reviews English
The previous Galaxy A12 has been kicking around for a while now, and it’s certainly a bit outdated by modern standards.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.

54% Samsung Galaxy A13 review

There is a lot that can go wrong when creating a phone, especially a budget one. The trouble is that most of these devices look very similar on paper. You have to spend some time with them to uncover any issues hidden beneath the surfaces and unfortunately we located a few pretty major ones on the Galaxy A13. It's a real shame since the Galaxy A13 still delivers in other key aspects. It has stellar battery life, and its cameras, while not exactly impressive, benefit from mature processing and deliver decent results. We just can't recommend the Galaxy A13, especially since Samsung itself has other better and more well-rounded Galaxy devices in the same price range to get instead.

Samsung Galaxy A13 Hands-On Philippines: Promising Contender?
Source: Unbox English
The Samsung Galaxy A12 is the best-selling Android smartphone for 2021, and the Galaxy A13 does have big shoes to fill in various markets including the Philippines. It’s more expensive than its predecessor, but the Galaxy A13 does get a slew of upgrades–including a design makeover–to shape itself as a promising contender in the already-saturated budget segment.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
