Samsung Galaxy M13 is an entry level smartphone equipped with a large power of 5,000mAh and a large 6.6-inch screen. The Galaxy M13, like most entry-level models, does not support functions such as waterproof and dustproof, wireless charging, etc. However, the mobile phone supports NFC, so if users really need mobile payment, they can still download Google Pay and use it. The back cover of the fuselage is made of plastic material and has a light hairline to create a good metal texture. The colors launched this time are more colorful than before, and the appearance is much younger. The aluminum frame is integrated with the back cover. There is only one radio microphone at the top and no LED indicator light; the other microphone is at the bottom. In addition, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom. With a 6.6-inch screen and a 5,000mAh battery capacity, the body weight is controlled at about 192g. Although it is not as light as the Galaxy M53 5G , it is not too burdensome to carry around. The rounded design of the surrounding frame also adds to the overall grip.

The 6.6-inch V-Ultimate flat screen supports a maximum screen resolution of 2,408 x 1,[email protected] (FHD+). It is also made of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 glass. The screen-to-body ratio is around 82.5%. The upper lens and the lower frame are still slightly thicker, and the Always On Display display is not supported. The screen has a basic refresh rate of 60Hz, but it is quite sufficient for daily watching YouTube videos or general browsing. The Galaxy M13 uses Samsung's eight-nanometer Exynos 850 octa-core processor, and has 4GB LPDDR4X + 64GB eMMC. Samsung also introduced the RAM Plus function  in most entry-level M series to provide an expandable virtual memory of maximum 4GB. The operating system used is One UI 4.1 based on Android 12, which is also Samsung's latest mainstream interface. For the charging part, the Galaxy M13 supports up to 15W lightning fast charging, but does not support wireless charging. 

The rear lenses of the Galaxy M13 are 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens (f/2.2, 123°), 50MP wide-angle main lens (f/1.8, PDAF) and 2MP depth-of-field lens (f/2.4), whereas the front Lens is a 8MP selfie front lens (f/2.2). The rear lens adopts auto focus, and does not support scene intelligence, dynamic photos and my filter functions; however, basic functions such as custom watermarks, automatic HDR, filters, and skin beauty are provided. User can also turn on the " High " from the camera settings. " Efficient Image " to shoot HEIF and HEVC files to save space. Rear lens video recording, can shoot up to [email protected] video, and can also adjust the focal length of 0.5x – 10x. As for connectivity, although it only has 4G communication specifications, it supports dual-band Wi-Fi. Galaxy M13 does not support 5G and 4×4 MIMO, but supports 4G FDD LTE and 4G TDD LTE, VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 5 (2.4 + 5GHz), Wi-Fi Direct and NFC functions. Almost all Samsung mobile phones provide two sets of facial recognition, and the Galaxy M13 is no exception. As a conclusion, the Galaxy M13 lacks a bunch of functions that mid-range phones and flagship phones have, but it is relatively simple to use. It is suitable as a smartphone for users who only have basic needs, such as younger kids or elderly.
