Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G Smartphone Review: 120 Hz AMOLED and capable 108 MP shooter for less than ₹20,000 (€200)

Cheap 5G thrill without frills. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G is a well-rounded device powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 6080 SoC that offers a lot of modern smartphone features including 5G, 120 Hz AMOLED display, and a 108 MP triple-camera for ₹18,999 (€210). While the experience with the Note 13 5G is largely positive, it is clear that Xiaomi had to cut a lot of corners to tame the pricing.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G in review

Xiaomi recently2 introduced upgrades to the popular Redmi Note lineup. Having previously reviewed the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G and the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G, we now turn our focus towards the entry-level variant, the Redmi Note 13 5G, also known as the Redmi Note 13 Classic 5G.

The Redmi Note 13 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 6080 SoC. Our unit comes with 8 GB LPDDR4x RAM and 256 GB UFS 2.2 storage embellished in an attractive Arctic White build.

The smartphone shares a lot in common with the Redmi Note 13 4G that features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 685, but the added 5G support begs a slightly higher asking price of ₹18,999 (US$242 or €210).

In this review, we take a good look at the Redmi Note 13 5G and see if it can triumph over the competition in this hotly contested segment.

Build: Significantly slimmer display bezels than the Redmi Note 12

For its asking price, the Redmi Note 13 5G offers little room for criticism with respect to overall build quality. The design takes many cues from the Redmi Note 12 5G but prominent changes include ultra-thin bezels on all four sides and a flat back panel.

The construction is predominantly plastic, with the display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

A screen protector comes pre-installed, but it may start bubbling or incur minor damage if you keep the phone in the pocket alongside other items. Despite the plastic construction on the back panel and the frame, the Note 13 shows no structural weaknesses.

Holding the phone for longer durations feels quite comfortable owing to the well-distributed 174.5 g weight devoid of any sharp corners.

Additionally, the Redmi Note 13 is IP54-rated for limited dust and water resistance.

Hardware: Headphone jack, IR blaster, and microSD expansion onboard

Our Redmi Note 13 5G unit came equipped with 8 GB of LPDDR4x-2133 RAM and 256 GB UFS 2.2 storage. An entry-level 6 GB + 128 GB SKU and a top-end 12 GB + 256 GB variant are in the offing as well.

The smartphone's features along its sides are detailed below. The earpiece does not function as a loudspeaker.

Software: Entry-level Note 13 gets Xiaomi HyperOS

The Redmi Note 13 5G originally shipped with MIUI 14 based on Android 13 but can now be upgraded to Xiaomi HyperOS based on Android 14. The security patches are current as of March 2024 at the time of writing this review.

HyperOS isn't radically different from MIUI, and most users won't see it any different from MIUI 14. The majority of changes are under the hood to ensure effective cross functionality with other products in Xiaomi's "Human x Car x Home" ecosystem.

Notable changes include subtly revamped app icons and shortcut menus, redesigned Control Center with music playback, lighter install, new lock screen styles, improvements to the always-on display, and a Dynamic Island-esque status bar.

HyperOS comes with the promise of less bloat. But all the bloat carried over from MIUI 14 after performing an in-place upgrade. Xiaomi bundles in its own nagging app store and a set of preloaded apps. Thankfully, these can be uninstalled without having to resort to workarounds. First-party inbox apps still show the occasional ad or two, however.

Xiaomi's new OS is also supposed to be pretty responsive on low-end hardware, but we still encountered the occasional stuttering and lag during normal use particularly during boot.

The Redmi Note 13 5G is listed as Android Enterprise Recommended (AER). HyperOS offers a dedicated way to prepare the device for business use and this requires entering required credentials from IT.

OS updates till Android 15 are guaranteed. Android 16 support is not confirmed at the moment, but the device is slated to reach its end-of-life (EOL) status only in September 2027.

Communication and GNSS: Mediocre Wi-Fi 5 and no L5 GPS

The Redmi Note 13 is far from breaking any records with its built in Wi-Fi 5 connectivity. That being said, the speeds are for its price range.

There's no Wi-Fi 6 support, but we found the throughput to be largely stable at a distance of 1 m from our reference Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 router in a clear line of sight.

The Redmi Note 13 5G supports several global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) including GPS L1 and GLONASS L1, Galileo E1, BeiDou B1, and NavIC L1. L5 band support is lacking.

The phone has difficulty in latching onto a satellite signal indoors but has no such issues outdoors.

While the Redmi Note 13 handles basic navigation adequately, the GPS tracking accuracy leaves something to be desired. We found that the smartphone erroneously tracking through buildings despite taking it for a ride in open spaces.

The Apple iPhone 15 Pro also finds it difficult to accurately trace the path around densely packed buildings but is otherwise quite accurate in less obstructed environments.

Telephony and Call quality: No VoNR and inadequate call loudness

The Redmi Note 13 5G supports dual-SIM dual-standby. There is no eSIM support, but two physical SIM cards can be used simultaneously, provided you have no need for a microSD card. Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi calling are supported, but the current firmware does not yet offer Voice over 5G (Vo5G or VoNR).

We did not encounter any reception issues during testing on the Jio True5G network. However, the earpiece speaker isn't loud enough, and the opposite party can be heard clearly only after cranking up volume to the max.

Calls on the loudspeaker are discernable at lower volume levels and distortion is minimal. Nevertheless, they can still get drowned if the ambient noise is high.

The Note 13 5G relies on HyperOS's default dialer instead of the Google Phone app. The dialer supports native call recording, ability to add notes to each call, and an integrated contacts manager.

Google Messages is the default SMS app, but you can also switch to HyperOS's Messaging app if desired.

The 16 MP front facing camera takes decent selfies. While details in the subject come out well, the background appears rather dull and over-sharpened. Selfies are not the most detailed at 100% crop, but the output is more than adequate for social media.

On the plus side, skin tones are reproduced quite accurately without oversaturation. Finer details such as facial hair are resolved satisfactorily.

Selfie portraits are generally usable with good edge resolution, although the bokeh effect can obscure features like hair around the face. Due to the fixed focal length of the 16 MP selfie camera, shots can become blurry if the subject is not within the optimal range.

There is no dedicated macro sensor, but the main camera activates Macro mode when taken close to the subject. Macro shots are just about passable with a reduced 2 MP resolution and lots of noise even in bright sunlight.

The rear features a 108 MP triple-camera setup with the primary sensor being the Samsung HM6 complemented by an 8 MP OmniVision OV08 shooter. Compared to the OnePlus Nord CE3's 50 MP IMX890, the Redmi Note 13 5G's primary camera produces somewhat smoother images with slightly dull (read more natural) colors. However, the pictures look good overall and seem sufficient for socials.

The Note 13's 2x sensor crop zoom is far superior to the Nord CE3's 2x mode, providing more useful shots. While the Nord CE3 loses considerable detail at 3x sensor crop, the Note 13 5G maintains comparable detailing at both 2x and 3x zoom levels

Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 8 MP ultrawide. While the shots are serviceable, zooming in reveals significant reduction in detail and fringing around subjects. The ultrawide's colors appear quite muted, and the sensor struggles in resolving finer details in the frame.

Video capture is unfortunately limited to just 1080p 30 fps on both the front and rear cameras and can be recorded in H.264 or H.265 formats. There is no stabilization offered whatsoever.

The Redmi Note 13 exhibits significant color deviations in good ambient lighting, with a maximum Delta E 2000 of 16.5 in the ColorChecker Passport's foliage green color. Details in the test chart are well reproduced.

At 1 lux, however, the camera struggles with proper focusing and produces incredibly grainy images. The pure white color in the ColorChecker Passport shows the maximum Delta E 2000 value of 56.4. The test chart image is barely legible and carries a lot of noise in this condition.

The Note 13 feels a little sluggish at boot but otherwise functions quite smoothly. Touch inputs are recognized without any misses or noticeable delays for the most part. 

The haptics are quite prominent depending on the vibration settings. Xiaomi offers the default Emoji&Font keyboard, but Google's Gboard also comes pre-installed.

Biometric authentication is facilitated by a capacitive fingerprint reader embedded in the power button. The sensor registers and recognizes fingerprints quickly without much fuss compared to some of the optical under-display ones we've seen. There's also an option to setup a convenient albeit less secure 2D face unlock.

Display: 120 Hz HDR AMOLED with fast response times and DC dimming

Subpixel matrix
Subpixel matrix

The Redmi Note 13 5G features a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. While this is not an LTPO panel, the screen dynamically oscillates between 60 Hz and 120 Hz depending on the app. Apps such as Google Maps and YouTube, for example, are locked to 60 Hz even if 120 Hz is forced in the display settings.

The Indian variant offers a 10-bit color depth, which should lend itself to good Display P3 coverage and vibrant HDR hues. However, the 10-bit panel is not offered in all markets.

Xiaomi officially rates the display brightness at 500 nits, which is largely true. Nonetheless, the Note 13's display can peak at 1,000 nits under bright ambient conditions, and we could measure a maximum brightness of up to 1,070 nits. The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ and the Note 13 Pro offer 12-bit panels that can supposedly peak at 1,800 nits.

The brightness sensor can be a bit finicky at times. It does not respond immediately to increased light levels, at least not when we tried flooding it with a bright torch.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.55 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.9 ms rise
↘ 0.65 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 5 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.13 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.57 ms rise
↘ 0.56 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 ms).

Response times are fast in both 100% black to 100% white and 50% grey to 80% grey transitions. The display is well-suited for competitive gaming without any ghosting artefacts.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 120 Hz
Amplitude: 25 %
≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 120 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 120 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17560 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The Redmi Note 13 uses DC dimming to control the OLED panel's backlight. DC dimming operates at 60 Hz or 120 Hz depending on the screen's refresh rate.

There is no option to manually toggle the anti-flicker mode either in display settings or in the developer options. And since we are running a stable build, third-party apps like Activity Launcher can only reveal the hidden anti-flicker setting but not activate it.

According to Xiaomi, the device switches over to 1,920 Hz PWM at lower brightness levels. We cannot confirm this value, but we find no PWM flickering at up to 10% of the brightness slider. DC dimming seems to kick in from the 25% mark onwards and persists till maximum brightness.

0% brightness: No PWM
0% brightness: No PWM
10% brightness: No PWM
10% brightness: No PWM
25% brightness: 120 Hz DC dimming

No temporal dithering was detected.

With the display brightness boosting up to 1,000 nits, outdoor viewing is satisfactory even under bright conditions. The Note 13 maintains good viewing angle stability with no perceivable loss of brightness or color information even at the extremes.

Performance: Dimensity 6080 positions itself between the Snapdragon 685 and 695

The Redmi Note 13 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 6080 SoC, which is just a rebadged Dimensity 810 with no changes except for added 108 MP camera support.

Accordingly, the Note 13's Dimensity 6080's performance in Geekbench 5.5 seems on par with the Dimensity 810 in the Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro in single core with slight leads in multi-core. That being said, the Dimensity 6080 manages to edge out the Dimensity 810 in AnTuTu v9, PCMark for Android, and the Procyon AI inference benchmark.

The Redmi Note 13 4G, in contrast, relies on the Snapdragon 685, which trails the Dimensity 6080 in the Note 13 5G by a good 22% overall.

The OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite's Snapdragon 695 shows about 8% gains in cumulative CPU performance compared to the Note 13's Dimensity 6080. However, we still see the Dimensity 6080 taking the lead in PCMark for Android and CrossMark while showing a significant advantage in Procyon AI inference.

The Dimensity 6080 uses the same Mali-G57 MP2 GPU found the Helio G96 of yore, but the performance has improved considerably since then.

The Note 13 5G's Mali-G57 MP2 is a whopping 69% faster than the Adreno 610 in the Redmi Note 13 4G, although it trails the Nord CE 3 Lite's Adreno 619 by 14% in cumulative GPU tests. 

Interestingly, the G57 MP2 in the Pova 6 Pro performs on par with the one in the Note 13 5G in 3DMark but shows significant gains in GFXBench tests.
