Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G review – A new mid-range top dog?

Plus points. A bright, curved display, a powerful 200-MP camera, great performance and 120-watt fast charging: With features like these, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G aims to shake up the mid-range smartphone segment. The phone also comes with an IP68-certified glass case, WiFi 6 and eSIM support. Our review will show how the competition compares.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G

The Redmi Note smartphones from Xiaomi are very popular, as the mid-range devices offer solid features and performance at a comparatively moderate price. This year's lineup, which consists of 5 models, is no different.

The 2024 Redmi Note series starts with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 4G which costs around US$220. This is followed by the Redmi Note 13 5G, the Redmi Note 13 Pro 4G and the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G. At the top of the Redmi Note quintet is our test candidate, the top-of-the-range Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G, which starts at around US$460.

Despite its inconspicuous "plus" suffix, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G differs greatly from the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G which is already being sold for close to the US$330 mark. Buyers also get a 200-megapixel camera but on top of this, they also get a faster SoC and, among other things, more charging power, a rounded display and a higher protection class, namely IP68.

Case - The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G with a curved display and glass back

Xiaomi is breaking new ground with its Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G, as it is the first Redmi Note smartphone to not only have a curved display, but also an IP68 certification, making it dust- and waterproof. The screen is protected by durable Gorilla Glass Victus and comes with a screen protector pre-installed.

In all three color variants (Aurora Purple, Midnight Black and Moonlight White), the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G has a glass back, which, in contrast to the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G, is glossy instead of matte, making it quite the fingerprint magnet. This can be prevented by placing the smartphone in the supplied protective case. Otherwise, the camera module protrudes around 3 millimetres from the back cover, causing it to wobble back and forth.

In general, the Note 13 Pro+ 5G feels high-quality and looks good. Its stability is also good, as it did not warp or dent significantly in our test. In everyday use, you likely won't notice the fact that it only has a plastic frame. At 204 grams, the Xiaomi phone weighs about as much as the Samsung Galaxy A54.

Connectivity - Up to 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage

There are two storage configurations of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G available:

  • 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage: approx. US$465
  • 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage: approx. US$540

Both storage variants make use of LPDDR5 RAM and fast UFS-3.1 storage. The Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G has to make do with slower LPDDR4 RAM and UFS-2.2 storage. You can't expand its storage because the phone has no microSD card slot. You can install 2 nano SIM cards or you can install one nano SIM card and use an eSIM.

As is typical for Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G features an IR blaster which you can use with compatible end devices such as smart TVs. Concessions to the price range include its always-on display, which is only active for 10 seconds after tapping, as well as its OTG-capable USB-C port, which is only connected internally at USB 2.0 speeds and achieved a data throughput of 32.3 MB/s in our copying test using our reference Samsung 980 Pro SSD. While the other smartphones in the current Redmi Note series have a 3.5 mm headphone jack, Xiaomi has omitted it from the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G.

Software - MIUI 14 with plenty of bloatware

Xiaomi's user interface MIUI 14 runs on the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G and it is based on Android 13. The smartphone is set to receive three years of Android upgrades and security patches will be rolled out for four years. At the time of testing in mid March, its last Android security update was from 01/01/2024, so not totally up-to-date.

Ex-works, the Xiaomi phone comes with tons of apps pre-installed that mostly fall under the category "bloatware". Only 473 GB are free to use on our freshly set-up 512-GB test device, as the OS and apps together take up almost 39 GB of its storage. Thankfully, the third-party apps can all be deleted.

On the other hand, it's a little more difficult to get rid of the advertizing that Xiaomi has integrated into its apps. Although you can find lots of instructions online that show you how to deactivate ads being shown, it does take quite a while until users have completed all of the steps.

Communication and GNSS - The Xiaomi phone with WiFi 6

With its 20 4G bands and 13 5G bands, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G supports all of the cellular frequencies important for the EU space, which is where our test was carried out. Use in other parts of the world should also most likely be possible without any big issues. 

At short distances, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G uses Bluetooth 5.3 and WiFi 6. The latter is exclusive to the current Redmi Note series, as the four other devices have to make do with WiFi 5.

Connected to our Asus ROG Rapture AXE11000 reference router, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G achieves a good WiFi data throughput which is largely stable in both sending and receiving directions.

The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G determines its current location with the help of the satellite navigation services GPS, Glonass, Galileo, Beidou and QZSS, each in single-band. Outside, the smartphone achieves a high accuracy of up to 1 metre. 

Our practical test showed the Xiaomi phone to be well equipped as a navigation device if you don't rely on complete accuracy. On our 10-kilometre bike trip, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G recorded our route a lot less precisely than the Garmin Venu 2 fitness smartwatch which we used as our reference device.

Telephone features and call quality

Aside from VoLTE, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G also supports WLAN calls and can house two nano-SIM cards. Alternatively, you can activate one eSIM—but at the cost of having to give up one of the physical SIM slots. 

In our test, the Xiaomi phone delivered good call quality during telephone calls and quite effectively suppressed background noises. Our voice was transmitted clearly when using the loudspeaker, too. 

Cameras - A 200-MP camera with a Samsung ISOCELL HP3

Photo taken using the selfie camera
Photo taken using the selfie camera

The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G shares its camera specs with the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G but in practical use, our test sample's photos ended up looking better. Only their selfie cameras are about the same. This lens sits within a punch-hole cutout, has a 16-MP resolution, looks decent during video calls and takes nice-looking portrait shots that show good levels of detail.  

The same as its predecessor, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G, the new model's main camera also uses a 200-MP image sensor. The 1/1.4-inch Samsung ISOCELL HP3 combines 16 neighboring pixels into one pixel as standard, resulting in 12.5-MP photos. The image sensor is supported by electronic and optical image stabilization. This 16-to-1 pixel-binning ensures that the light yield remains high in poor lighting conditions. As it doesn't feature a tele lens, you can only zoom digitally up to 10x. 

The 200 MP picture mode lets you make use of the Samsung ISOCELL HP3's full resolution. However, you should make sure there is enough light to achieve good photos—this is explicitly pointed out by the camera software. The rest of the camera setup isn't nearly as good as the main camera, as it doesn't offer anything special—only an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2 MP macro sensor.

In daylight, the phone's main camera takes excellent photos which depict colors naturally and don't have to shy away from shots taken on much more expensive smartphone cameras. Although there is a difference between classes, you do have to look quite closely to see it. A difference becomes noticeable when casting a glance at very bright and very dark areas of a photo, as better camera lenses such as those of the Google Pixel 8 Pro of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra manage to achieve even better levels of detail.

When compared to the rest of its price class, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G's photo quality is above average, even in low-light conditions. The main camera benefits from its large f/1.65 aperture, with which it can still get a lot out of the subjects. Although the level of detail decreases at night, only a little image noise creeps into the images.

The smartphone can record good-quality videos at a maximum of 4K and 30fps. Switching between the main and ultra-wide angle lenses is possible up to 1080p. Using this mode, you can record video at up to 60fps.

In terms of the other cameras, the Xiaomi phone keeps a respectful distance from upper-class smartphones, which is clear from its lack of a telephoto lens alone. Its ultra-wide-angle camera uses a slightly different white balance than its main camera and takes solid pictures that are no worse than those of cheaper smartphones. Details and colors are good, but they are blurred at the edges. The macro camera has a resolution of 2 MP and is of little practical use, as the main camera takes better close-ups with its digital zoom.

In our test lab, the main camera showed that it can capture colors very accurately in optimal lighting conditions (maximum Delta-E of 8.05). It also reproduced the test chart very sharply. At 1 lux residual light, the test chart remained recognizable, but was only displayed very darkly.

Accessories and warranty - 120-watt power supply included

The included 120-watt power supply
The included 120-watt power supply

Xiaomi delivers the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G with a 120-watt power supply (up to 20V/6A), USB-C cable, SIM tool, protective case, short instruction manual including warranty information and a further leaflet with safety instructions.

In the US, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G features a standard 12-month warranty.

Input devices & operation - The fingerprint sensor measures your heart rate

The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G's touchscreen reacts very promptly and precisely to inputs. When gaming, its touch-sampling rate rises from the standard 240 Hz to up to 2160 Hz. The physical buttons give you crisp feedback, sit firmly within the case and can barely be wiggled to the sides. Its linear vibration motor is quiet and even at the highest setting, it is still pretty subtle.

The fingerprint sensor that sits beneath the phone's screen unlocked the device quickly and reliably during our test. In addition, it can be used to measure your heart rate but of course, it can't replace a medical device. A further biometric authentication method is its 2D facial recognition. Face Unlock relies on good ambient light and in our case, it worked just as easily as unlocking the phone via the fingerprint sensor.

Display - 120-Hz AMOLED screen with up to 1700 cd/m² brightness

Sub-pixels
Sub-pixels

The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G's 6.67-inch AMOLED panel has a resolution of 2712 x 1220 pixels, resulting in a high pixel density of 446 PPI. Aside from HDR10 and HDR10+, the screen also supports Dolby Vision and HLG. In the standard setting, the AMOLED panel automatically switches to 60 or 120 Hz depending on the content displayed. Optionally, the refresh rate can be permanently set to 60 or 120 Hz.

When depicting a pure white background, the AMOLED panel achieves an average brightness of 1233 cd/m², meaning it shines brighter than average for this price class. However, it can do even more. When depicting even parts light and dark areas (APL18 measurement), its maximum brightness rises to 1714 cd/m², which is quite close to the value of 1800 nits that is specified by the manufacturer. When showing HDR content, we couldn't elicit anything over 1178 cd/m² out of the display. Using the lowest brightness setting, it shines at 2.36 cd/m².

To mitigate the OLED flickering, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G uses PWM dimming at up to 1920 Hz. We only measured 1428 Hz at minimum brightness (first Rigol screenshot), but this should not cause any complaints for sensitive users. However, we also noticed a low-frequency flickering of 120 Hz with a very flat amplitude curve. This can also be seen in the second screenshot of the Rigol measurement series ("min."), which shows practically the same as the first screenshot. The main difference: Due to the scaling, a different zoom level was used for the "min." image, which makes the amplitude look so flat there. The 120 Hz flickering is probably Black Frame Insertion (BFI), which is used to reduce motion blur.

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

The display backlight flickers at 120 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

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 17788 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Using the preset color mode Vivid, the AMOLED panel uses the DCI-P3 color space. If you switch to Standard, the screen switches to the significantly smaller sRGB color space but achieves the best picture quality.

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
1.43 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.8285 ms rise
↘ 0.6 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. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.7885 ms rise
↘ 0.81 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. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 ms).

Outside, the viewing-angle stable AMOLED panel remains legible even in direct sunlight. You can also select a sunlight mode via the display settings which automatically adjusts the screen brightness to strong sunlight. In doing so, however, you do have to deactivate the brightness sensor which, during our test, proved to not make the most sense. If you adjust the brightness manually, you can only elicit a maximum brightness of 516 cd/m² from the display. Nothing changed about this when we activated the sunlight mode.

Performance - The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G with a MediaTek Dimensity 7200-Ultra

The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G has been given the most powerful SoC within the Redmi Note series, namely the MediaTek Dimensity 7200-Ultra. The processor, manufactured with a 4 nm structure width, works with 2 ARM Cortex A715 power cores that clock at up to 2.8 GHz. There is also a second cluster with 6 ARM Cortex A510 power cores, which achieve a maximum clock frequency of 2 GHz. 

Performance-wise, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G leaves most mid-range smartphones up to US$400 in the dust. Its system speed is high, apps run fast and even having multiple programs open at once doesn't make the Xiaomi phone break out in a sweat. In our test, we did note the occasional tiny stutter but in total, its operation is buttery smooth.

The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G not only outperformed the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G in the synthetic benchmarks, but also similarly equipped comparison devices such as the Motorola Edge 40 Neo and the Samsung Galaxy A54. However, benchmarks such as Crossmark and PCMark for Android didn't particularly suit it. In terms of performance, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G is best compared with the Google Pixel 7a.

Thanks to its UFS-3.1 storage, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G achieves high data throughput and loads even larger apps quickly. Other smartphones within the same price class can hardly compete. The only exception is the Xiaomi Poco X6 Pro which boasts UFS-4.0 storage.

Games - 120 frames per second remain the exception

Current games can be played well on the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G. The graphically less-demanding Asphalt 9 balanced out near the 60fps mark. The same can be said for PUBG Mobile using the HD/Extreme setting. The frame rate fluctuates a lot more when playing the graphically demanding Genshin Impact, at times falling below 35fps. This isn't terribly smooth anymore.

The Xiaomi couldn't show off its 120-Hz screen, at least in the games we tested. At least PUBG Mobile offers us a 90fps mode in the lowest graphics setting, namely smooth.

We determined the game frame rates with our Gamebench test tool.

Emissions - The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G with stereo speakers

Temperature

During use, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G stays nice and cool. We only noted temperatures above body temperature after our one-hour stress test using the Burnout benchmark. Even so, a maximum of 42.3 °C doesn't feel uncomfortably warm. As the Wild Life stress tests from 3DMark showed, the Xiaomi smartphone can access its full performance practically all the time.

Speakers

The Xiaomi phone's stereo speakers produce a fairly balanced sound by smartphone standards, with very linear mids and highs that do not sound distorted at maximum volume. However, there is no bass.

External audio devices can be connected via USB-C or Bluetooth 5.3 for better sound. The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G supports almost all current Bluetooth codecs, including AAC, SBC, aptX HD, aptX TWS+ and LHDC V1 to V5.

Battery life - Completely charged in under 30 minutes

Power consumption

While the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G made do with a 67-watt power supply unit, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G can use its 120-watt power supply unit to its full advantage. When switched off, the smartphone was fully charged after a speedy 28 minutes during the test.

According to Xiaomi, charging should only take 19 minutes. However, we couldn't verify this ourselves despite activating battery options such as increase charging speed and accelerate charging. The closest we could get to the manufacturer's claim was to leave the phone switched on and connect it to the power supply when the battery was at 1 per cent. It was then charged after 24 minutes.

Under load and in idle mode, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G doesn't require too much power. Although its basic consumption is somewhat high, it runs much more frugally than the slower Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G at maximum load.
