Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: All-rounder mid-range smartphone

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Redmi, a sub-brand of Xiaomi, entered into the new year with the launch of the Redmi Note 13 Series in the Indian market. The Series has three smartphones – Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G, Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 13 5G. I got to review the middle child of the Note 13 lineup and here’s my view.

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Price and Variants

The Redmi Note 13 Pro is available in three RAM and storage variants 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 256GB. They are available at Rs 23,999, Rs 25,999 and Rs 27,999 respectively. The smartphone is available in three colours – Coral Purple, Arctic White and Midnight Black. Here I am using the 12GB + 256GB variant of the device in Coral Purple colour as a review unit.

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Inside the Box

The retail box contains the smartphone, Type-A to Type-C charging cable, a 67W charging brick, a black colour silicon case, a SIM-eject pin and a user manual.

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Design and Display

This is a good-looking smartphone with a distinct and stylish triple colour-block pattern camera module at the rear. I discussed the design in my First Impression of the Redmi Note 13 Pro. The flat back and display with metallic frame give the device a sturdy look.

The display of the device will not let you down either. I watched a few movies on this device and enjoyed it. The immersive experience was further enhanced by dual stereo speakers. Also, the display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. The display offers a peak brightness of 1,800 nits  

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Performance and Software

The Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G is the world’s first smartphone to be powered by a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 processor. The processor is capable enough to offer smooth performance and lets you multitask without any hiccups. You can even play heavy games like Asphalt 9 at low graphics settings.

The smartphone boots on Android 13-based MIUI 14 operating system and a host of customisation features. The bloatware issue remains the same as it was in the last generation of the Redmi Note Series. 

According to the company, the device will get three major Android updates and security updates. The company has also confirmed that the device will soon get a Xiaomi HyperOS upgrade.

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Battery and Charging

The Redmi Note 13 Pro comes with a 5,100mAh battery and supports 67W fast charging. The device easily lasts over a day on a full charge. It can be juiced up from zero to 100 per cent in around 45 minutes.

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Camera

The Redmi Note 13 Pro comes with a triple camera setup with a primary sensor of 200MP. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro camera with LED flash.

The main sensor clicks good images in natural sunlight and good lighting conditions. The images retain details and have punchy colours. The portrait mode works well and gives a decent bokeh effect. Even in low-light conditions, the smartphone does fairly well. However, low-light images look much brighter and a few portions of the image may look slightly overexposed. The ultra-wide camera manages to control distortions around the edges and the overall image is worth sharing on social media platforms.

The selfie camera clicks good images in well-lit conditions and retains a natural skin tone.

Redmi Note 13 Pro Review: Verdict

The Redmi Note 13 Pro is an all-rounder smartphone that ticks almost all boxes. If you are looking for a smartphone under Rs 30,000, it is one of the best options available in the market.
