Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G

60% Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G review: Struggling to keep up with the competition
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G is proof of how good budget phones have gotten recently. Go back in time just a few short years, and you couldn’t get anything near this much value for the price. The trouble is that Xiaomi’s rivals haven’t stood still, either. And that makes the Redmi Note 13 5G a tougher sell. If you can spend just a little more money, both the Nothing Phone (2a) and the Google Pixel 6a offer substantially better performance and, especially in the case of the latter, better photography.

92% Redmi Note 13 and Note 13 5G Smartphones Review
Source: Root Nation English
Summing up, it can be said that the Redmi Note 13 and Redmi Note 13 5G are quite decent smartphones for their segment. Among the advantages, we can highlight the excellent AMOLED display, stylish exterior design, decent level of performance, and battery life. The cameras are also good for this price range. As for the drawbacks, the glossy material of the body stands out. It’s a bit of a mixed bag – it looks beautiful and stylish, but from a practical standpoint, it’s not ideal, as fingerprints, dust, and smudges tend to accumulate on the body (or its individual parts).

80% Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 4G & 5G Review: Justifying the price tag and then some
Source: Android Headlines English
Xiaomi’s Redmi smartphones have always been a great choice for people on a budget. If they’re within your budget, and you’re not looking to spend too much on a phone, these two devices are solid choices. The 5G model is the better phone of the two, though. I’m not saying that just because it supports 5G connectivity. The camera performance is slightly better, the performance in general is better, and I even liked the case it comes with the phone a bit more. So, if you have the option to get the 5G model over the 4G one, go for it. Both of them are worth the money, though, I’d say.

78% Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Redmi Note 13 5G covers a lot of bases for £279, and there have been a couple of subtle but welcome design improvements over previous models. I still rate its 120Hz OLED display quite highly, too. On the other hand, its battery life appears to have taken a slight step back, while Xiaomi’s new HyperOS UI is hardly the MIUI upgrade we were hoping for. The choice of processor might represent a modest upgrade, meanwhile, but you can get faster performance for less money elsewhere. Together with a weirdly inconsistent camera setup, the Redmi Note 13 5G doesn’t feel like it’s on quite so solid ground as some of its predecessors. It’s a good phone, but there’s better value to be found elsewhere without looking very far.

Redmi Note 13 5G Review – A budget mid-ranger with great display and smooth performance
Source: Mobygyaan English
The Redmi Note 13 5G is more than just a 5G smartphone, it offers a super sleek 7.6 mm bezel-less design, a stunning 120 Hz AMOLED display in its segment, exceptional performance (Dimensity 6080) with as much as 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, and a great value for budget-conscious users. The Redmi Note 13 5G is available in multiple variants from 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage option to as much as 12 GB RAM+ 256 GB storage options. You can also grab the smartphone with some ongoing offers as well.

However, for one reason or another, it seems Xiaomi made too many compromises with the specs sheet for its own good. We don't get why there are no stereo speakers. The same goes for HDR video support on the display. We can't quite get over the 1080p video capture cap as well. Having tested the phone extensively, we can't say we are totally satisfied with its battery endurance either. The thing is that Xiaomi appears to be working against itself in this particular instance. As we mentioned, you could easily get something like Xiaomi's own Poco X6 and enjoy a much more rounded experience. All things considered, the Redmi Note 13 is not a bad phone in any particular way but is arguably not the best value package at its price point.

75% Redmi Note 13 5G review: good value for money
Source: 91mobiles English
The Redmi Note 13 5G offers modest upgrades without pushing any boundaries. It does face a fair bit of competition in its segment. If your priority lies with a clean Android experience for example, Motorola’s Moto G54 (review) and OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite (review) might seem better options. For cameras, there are some areas where the Redmi Note 13 offers reliable performance, but the Realme 11 5G (review) can offer relatively better results. All said and done, the Redmi Note 13 5G comes across as a solid choice if you value a long-lasting battery, a tall display, reliable performance (including gaming), and relatively fast charging. While design preferences are subjective, I find it to my satisfaction as well.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G vs Pro 5G vs Pro Plus 5G | Which is best for me?
Source: Tech Spurt English
Comparing Xiaomi's Redmi Note 13 5G vs the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G and that most premium Pro Plus global smartphone, to see how the camera, battery life etc stacks up. I've already reviewed the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus 5G, and the regular Pro - check back soon for my coverage of the most budget mobile! Now, in some ways these phones are all massively different, starting with the cameras. In our side-by-side test the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G served up the most natural colours. Both Pros are also a step up for low light and HDR shots. However, any kind of motion means blurry photos! Performance also improves as you upgrade from the Redmi Note 13 5G up to the Pro and Pro Plus models. The regular can cope with PubG etc but you'll need a Xiaomi Pro to play Genshin Impact. Battery life is excellent on all three Xiaomi smartphones, but the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G and that Plus model boost the charging speeds. And you've also got some bonuses like full water resistance on the Note 13 Pro Plus 5G, great news at this budget phone price.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G Review: cool looks on a budget
Source: Phone Arena English
When you draw the bottom line, the Redmi Note 13 5G comes up as a well balanced phone with solid performance, decent camera quality and very good battery life, all at a reasonable price. The quirky MIUI software, however, seems like the big stumbling block, and we specifically mean the way it kills background apps and fails to deliver push notifications on time for some apps. This issue has been around for nearly a decade, and we have no idea why it's not fixed yet. If you can live with that, the Redmi Note 13 5G seems like a pretty good choice.

80% Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G Review: Generic, Cheap, & Good!
Source: Nextpit EN English
I love my job. I really do! But you simply shouldn't expect me to paint a smartphone like the Redmi Note 13 5G in glowing terms for your mind's eye and pretend that I'm enthusiastically clicking my tongue in the face of an amazing piece of innovative engineering. Instead, the box, which is really neat, can be described with three words: "cheap, generic, good". This is because Xiaomi has once again assembled a smartphone that is easily sufficient for 95 percent of all smartphone users, looks nice, and is also inexpensive with a price tag starting at €279. Honestly speaking, what else should Xiaomi do? For just under €300, you get a smartphone with a great display and decent battery life that has a good camera and an okay processor on board. To be honest, I would have liked to see at least Android 14 onboard and maybe little things like stereo speakers or Wi-Fi 6 support. However, you know what? The Redmi Note 13 Ultra 5G still gets four stars from me. This is because it simply doesn't make any significant mistakes and is a really great, everyday smartphone.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
