Design & Display
From what you’d expect for a mid-range phone, the design of the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ feels and looks both premium. Its curved back provided us with excellent ergonomic handling, and when paired with the curved display, made for a really good one-handed phone experience.
Also, for the first time, Xiaomi decided to add a curved 3D display to their Note series, which worked out surprisingly well. It was easily accessible to swipe from the sides and wasn’t uncomfortable at all, which again contributed to the comfortable grip. The phone itself wasn’t heavy, which is surprising considering the size.
As for the display, the AMOLED display didn’t disappoint with the colours. With a proclaimed 1,800 nits at peak brightness, this phone performed well in bright daylight conditions. Viewing any multimedia produces vivid colours and overall gives us an enjoyable experience.
Performance & Battery
In terms of performance capability, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ is powered by the Mediatek Dimensity 7200 Ultra chipset. What this provided was relatively good multitasking capabilities and smooth, fluid animations with the MIUI OS software.
The phone was also capable of giving us a decent gaming experience thanks to its large vapour cooling chamber, as the phone didn’t overheat to an uncomfortable temperature.
Furthermore, the 5,000mAh battery was great even on a full day of extensive usage, as it had more than 50% charge remaining after only one full charge.
The star of the show had to be the 200MP camera for this price point. It stood out in the mid-range market, as the camera performed well in both day and night conditions. There were very pleasing colours and clarity, and the pictures didn’t become grainy until a higher zoom level past 4x.
Here are some sample shots we took on the phone:
However, one drawback was that the night shots tended to overexpose images. Despite this, the camera's overall performance at this price level is commendable.
