Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G smartphone review – A modern midrange phone with a fabulous screen

200-megapixel midrange. Xiaomi's well-loved Redmi Note series is back and offers something new: With the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G we have, for example, a 200 megapixel camera, e-SIM support and, if desired, tons of storage. Our detailed review reveals whether the mid-tier phone once again recieves a purchase recommendation.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G

In 2024, five new models will be in the Redmi Note series: Starting with the Redmi Note 13 4G for under £200 up to the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G for around £400. In the last few years, the Redmi Note smartphones were able to position themselves as excellent midrange alternatives. After all, you get a modern case, good cameras and a premium AMOLED display at a good price.

In this review, we aim to take a look at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G, the second most expensive in this year's series, which has a manufacturer's price of around £340. Compared to the top-end model, you will have to make do with a somewhat slower SoC, lower charging performance, a non-curved display and a worse water and dust protection class. 

Is the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G still a bargain?

Case – Slim bezels frame the screen

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G's case has been fitted with a flat display which isn't curved at the edges. The chassis feels good in the hand and is well-finished. The frame consists of plastic and the screen is protected by robust Gorilla Glass Victus.

The frame and rear of the device come in three color variations: Black, soft violet or greenish blue. Our violet review sample has a matte glass back that is fingerprint-resistant. The case handles pressure applied to it without breaking a sweat and cannot be twisted. 

In terms of the weight, nothing has changed compared to the predecessor: The device still tips the scales at 187 grams, but, size-wise, the smartphone has gotten a little more compact despite having the same-sized display. That suggests that Xiaomi has managed to further shrink the already slim display bezels its predecessor possessed. This gives the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G a very premium look, especially for a phone in this price segment.

According to the manufacturer, IP54 dust and water protection is on board and this is a little better than the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G. Nevertheless, we would advise against immersing the device in water.

Features – Interesting details

Xiaomi offers two different memory variants which are available in each of the aforementioned three colors:

  • 8 GB RAM / 256 GB mass storage: £339
  • 12 GB RAM / 512 GB mass storage: £399

Although we're dealing with LPDDR4X RAM, the memory controller also supports even faster LPDDR5 of up to 6,400 MHz. The mass storage is equipped with UFS 2.2 flash which ought to ensure good speeds for this price category. In the "Performance" section, we take a look at this in greater detail.

As we have already seen in many Xiaomi devices, there is a built-in IR blaster. This means the smartphone can also be used as a remote control for many other devices. The additional 3.5mm audio jack allows you to connect analogue headphones or speakers. 

The USB-C port is only connected internally using USB 2.0 speed. A microSD reader to expand the memory is not included but, by contrast, you can use 2 SIM cards as well as an e-SIM.

Software – A ton of bloatware and security patches

Xiaomi installs its own MiUI 14 user interface which is still based on Android 13. At the time of reviewing, the security updates are, as of January 2024, bang up-to-date. The manufacturer promises three years of new Android versions and four years of security patches.

The smartphone comes with numerous preinstalled apps. This means that, out of the box, almost 50 GB of the device's storage are already occupied. Sure, you can delete or hide many of the third-party apps and Xiaomi programs, but this is something that will take up some of your time before you can enjoy a relatively pure system. Although experienced users won't like having many security questions built into advanced functions, this could make sense for newcomers.  

For a phone that costs nearly £400, it's annoying that Xiaomi feels compelled to insert adverts in some of its own apps.

Communication and GNSS – Wi-Fi regression

WiFi 5 is the fastest Wi-Fi standard with which you can connect this smartphone to wireless networks.  

Paired with our Asus ROG Rapture AXE11000 reference router, the test speeds are good and sometimes considerably faster than some similarly-priced comparison phones. However, the predecessor was a few hundred MBit/s quicker, due to it supporting WiFi6. It's in this area that Xiaomi has decided to make cuts to our review device. 

As it is, it's not possible for the Xiaomi Remi Note 13 5G to fully take advantage of a gigabit internet connection, but, despite this, fast transfer speeds are feasible. 

Close to the router, full reception strength is a given and websites can be loaded very quickly. If you move 10 meters further away and put 3 walls between you and the router, 3/4 of the reception lights are displayed and websites are loaded noticeably slower. 

As a 5G smartphone, the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G covers many frequencies meaning the device can be used in most European countries as well as more distant countries.

When it comes to location, the Xiaomi phone communicates with all the big satellite networks, achieving a good outdoor accuracy of up to 3 meters.

In our practical test, we wanted to discover how accurately the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G can determine its position, especially on the move. By way of exception, this time we were on foot, due to icy conditions. Our comparison device came in the form of the Garmin Venu 2 smartwatch, which has proven its location capabilities many times before. 

The Redmi phone didn't do too badly either, mostly following our route very well and was only occasionally off the beaten track. You can use the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G for navigation purposes, but there are certainly more accurate location devices available.

Telephone functions and voice quality - Sharp and clear

Xiaomi uses Google's standard app for telephone calls and, additionally, it offers settings in the security app to help users block incoming calls. 

During telephone calls, the receiver sounds very clear and what we said was also received clearly at the other end. Nevertheless, we would advise against speaking too quietly otherwise the microphone has problems reproducing the voices correctly.  

Calling via the speaker and the hands-free microphone is of a similarly good quality. In this area, the receiver's voice isn't distorted, even at maximum volume and our voices could be heard clearly as long as we didn't speak too softly. 

Cameras – The 200-megapixel camera takes decent photos

Front-facing camera image
Front-facing camera image

On paper, the rear-facing 200-megapixel camera is one of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G's highlights.

However, it is seldom used to its full potential: Normally, only 12-megapixel photos are created meaning Samsung's Isocell HP3 sensor combines 16 pixels into one pixel to achieve greater light sensitivity. It's possible to use the maximum resolution by accessing a special mode but the camera notifies the user that good lighting is necessary and that the digital zoom can only be used to a very limited extent of up to 2x.

Photos taken with the main camera using the standard mode could certainly be a little brighter. But, overall, for this price range, the photos are quite appealing due to their level of detail and a nice bokeh effect. Under low-light conditions, very good brightening is, in fact, possible. The sharpness is quite good with only individual parts of the image suffering a reduction in quality. 

The main camera can shoot videos in 4K at 30fps and 60fps in Full HD. All in all, the footage is good, the autofocus responds quickly and accurately and the adaptive brightness works without fail. 

The 8-megapixel wide-angle camera takes decent snapshots but the sharpness falls off towards the edges. In addition to this, there is also a very low-resolution 2-megapixel macro camera.

The front-facing camera takes photos at a maximum of 16 megapixels. The images are bright and detailed.

The main camera also had to prove itself again, this time in the testing lab: Under these conditions, the photos appeared sharp but the contrast could have been somewhat higher in certain areas of the image. Although the camera also takes good photos at 1 lux, the colors appear significantly darker.

Accessories and warranty – A fast charger is included

Xiaomi hasn't compromised and, in addition to the appropriate 68-watt charger, it has also included a USB-C cable, a SIM tool and a silicon case.

In Europe, the manufacturer's devices come with a 24-month warranty.

Input devices & operation – A zippy touchscreen

The 120 Hz display has a 240 Hz touchscreen sampling rate and these are responsible for a very smooth smartphone operating experience. Even in its corners and at its sides, the display reacts promptly to inputs and the hardware buttons on the right-hand side of the case are reliable. 

The fingerprint sensor is located underneath the display and as soon as the phone is moved in standby mode, the according area is highlighted. After a one-time fingerprint setup, unlocking takes place without delay and is very reliable. The face recognition is quickly set up and works flawlessly.

Display – A very bright OLED screen

For a long time, high-quality AMOLED displays have been one of Xiaomi's midrange trademarks and, in the meantime, other manufacturers have followed suit. 

Nevertheless, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro's AMOLED display is something special. Especially its high brightness levels of up to 1,205 cd/m² with a completely white screen and up to 1,345 cd/m² in smaller areas. This allows HDR content to be displayed very well on the panel. 

Anyone who likes to use their smartphone to read in bed is protected from dazzlingly bright images by low screen brightness.

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 713.5 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 713.5 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 713.5 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18278 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

At low brightness, we detected noticeable PWM flickering which we measured to be 713.5 Hz. That is a very high frequency which ought to protect most users from problems. However, Xiaomi is again talking about a frequency of up to 1,920 Hz. As with the predecessor, we were unable to establish this measurement using our measuring equipment.

The display has very fast response times and using "Standard" mode, the color reproduction is also very easy on the eye with low deviations from the best-case scenario.

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
1.33 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.65 ms rise
↘ 0.68 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. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

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. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.1 ms).

Outdoors, the smartphone often manages to reach high levels of luminosity, even in very bright environments and it usually displays its screen content reliably. 

If you look at the display from a very wide angle, images are perfectly legible and the contrast level remains high.

Performance – A meagre upgrade

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 SoC, introduced recently, is very similar to last year's Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

In our benchmarks, the processor mostly managed to secure front-running places among the similarly expensive comparison devices and the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G is normally a little faster than its predecessor. Whether or not you actually notice that difference in everyday use is debatable. In any case, our review device was smooth to use and also offered enough power for somewhat more demanding apps.

In terms of graphics performance, the new Adreno 710 achieves decent performance scores which allow the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G to sprint to the front of the pack of competing devices. Demanding benchmarks also ran smoothly at Full HD but the chipset's power is insufficient for higher resolutions.

Games – Sometimes at 60fps

We also downloaded some games onto the Redmi smartphone to see how they would run. The device falls short of being able to achieve 60fps in all settings and, likewise, it's just as hard to hit even higher framerates. 

However, if you can lower your expectations and choose lower graphics settings, you can enjoy both PUBG mobile and Genshin Impact at a relatively smooth 60fps. By contrast, although Diablo Immortal is limited to 30fps in all settings, it does run smoothly. We measured the frame rates using the GameBench software.

Both touchscreen and motion controls work flawlessly.

Temperature

Under longer periods of high load, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G can get noticeably warm, but, at a maximum of 43.4 °C, the waste heat is never critical.

The smartphone also showed no difficulty in maintaining its performance over lengthier load times: After 20 runs in the 3DMark stress test, we saw very similar scores to those recorded at the start.

Speakers

The Redmi handset's speakers comprise dedicated speakers on the bottom edge and the headphone area. All in all, the sound can be described as good and well-balanced without breaking any records. The sound doesn't suffer from being over-modulated, even at maximum volume.

With classical music, you can pick out the individual instruments. With pop music, the vocals are present and it's easy to understand the actors when watching movies - although the effects would have benefited from somewhat additional oomph. This is where you notice the smartphone's small speaker lacks bass.

Anyone on the hunt for better sound should simply consider connecting headphones or speakers via the 3.5mm port or Bluetooth 5.2. The device has more or less all of the current audio codes at its disposal, like, for example, Hi-Res codecs such as LHDC or aptX HD.

Battery life – Quick charging and good staying power

Power consumption

When it comes to energy efficiency, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G finds itself in the middle of the pack: The basic consumption is a little on the high side while the average load consumption is quite low. At full power, the smartphone can drain the battery quite quickly. 

To recharge the battery, a 67-watt charger is included. This allows the phone to achieve a full charge within a maximum of 45 minutes. The Redmi device comes without wireless charging.

Battery life

Compared to the predecessor, the battery is slightly bigger with the phone now having access to 5,100 mAh. That was sufficient for a runtime of 16 hours and 42 minutes in our Wi-Fi test with a regulated display brightness of 150 cd/m².

However, under load, the smartphone is, in fact, less efficient than other competing phones in its price category: Despite this, it's possible to play games or run very demanding apps for 5 hours.

In everyday use, the overall good battery life and, above all, the speedy charging times should mean you have no reason to fear the battery running out of juice.

Verdict – The midrange smartphone only has small weaknesses

Review: Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G
Review: Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G

At the start of 2024, Xiaomi has already set the bar a little higher for midrange smartphones with its Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G: Currently, it's difficult to find such a bright AMOLED display and a high-resolution camera elsewhere.

The light case and its slim bezels are a standout and the display is protected from damage thanks to Gorilla Glass Victus. The generous storage options (up to 512 GB UFS 2.2 flash), the 3.5mm audio jack connector and an IR blaster are also (still) something special in this price segment.

What's also nice this year is that Xiaomi has awarded its midrange phone e-SIM support. However, it's a pity the Wi-Fi speed is considerably slower compared to last year's model. 

The software is also a mixed bag: The good news is that Xiaomi has expanded its update policy and, at the time of our review, the smartphone possesses the most up-to-date security patches. Nevertheless, we find ourselves asking the question if it's really necessary to have dozens of preinstalled third-party apps as part of your own program. 

The main camera takes decent photos and good selfies are also possible. Likewise, the handset offers acceptable location accuracy as well as good voice quality.

Despite its plastic case, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G is a premium midrange smartphone without any real weaknesses. 

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G predecessor had few cut corners but is more than £150 cheaper, at the time of reviewing. With its even faster display and W-Fi, the Motorola Edge 40 Neo is also impressive.
