Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus 5G – First Impression

News

Design and Display:

The vegan leather appears to be softer or has more voids inside, and the rear cover vibration is audible when the volume is turned up high. I don’t believe it’s a big deal; perhaps Redmi purposefully made the back cover part of the speaker as well. Speaking of speakers, the Note 13 Pro+ now includes AAC’s 2-in-1 speaker motor part – Combo. This speaker not only saves room for the vibration motor on the inside, but it also has additional bass and volume. I believe that in the future, similar speakers will be found in an increasing number of phones.

Since TCL’s display panels have gotten better and better, the display we use on the budget phone has gotten better too. Although you’ve probably heard it many times before, I’d still say it’s the best screen I’ve seen in its price range. It’s top-notch in terms of both peak brightness and color calibration. Various eye protection features are also present, and it’s even got various certifications from TÜV  Rheinland. But for me personally, it would be nice if it was a straight screen because curved screens can never skip the problem of greenish edges.

Camera:

The Note 13 Pro+, like the realme 11 Pro+, substitutes the telephoto camera with a super high-megapixel primary camera, which is an excellent choice for a mid-range phone. Even though it doesn’t snap photographs at 200MP, the HP3 sensor is one of the best. But here are a couple of caveats you need to know:

First, if you need to take a photo of an object from a certain distance, try to zoom in before you take the photo, rather than using a 200MP photo to crop it yourself. In these two images, you will see that manual zoom is much sharper.

Second, the lower the light, the weaker the zoom ability. If you feel that it is dark, then try to avoid zooming in more than 2 times to take pictures, otherwise the picture quality will crash very badly.

Third, while the night mode improves the dynamic range, it does not improve the sharpness. Use Auto mode instead of night mode to get sharper shots after zooming.

Fourth, the main camera’s purple-fringing issue is highly visible, and it has a glitch. I’m pretty sure I didn’t photograph a Christmas tree, but the way it flickered around made me chuckle. If you photograph a tree, it can become a Christmas tree, like I did. This is most likely the most serious issue with the current software version of the Note 13 Pro+.

Performance & Gaming:

When there is no T in the name of a Redmi Note model, the performance is usually poor. However, the performance of the Note 13 Pro+ is little better than predicted this time. It’s not as powerful as the Note 12 Turbo, but it’s better than the 12 Pro+ and realme 11 Pro+ from last year. The Note 13 Pro+’s long-term output does not appear to be an issue either; its gaming experience should theoretically be superior, and it is. However, the frame rate advantage does not appear to be as significant as the score suggests. In truth, I don’t think the frame rate improvement is considerable; the game experience is comparable.

So the Dimensity 7200-Ultra on the 13 Pro+ didn’t help at all? Not really. After all, if you’re going to record video in 4K resolution, then the support of EIS makes footage smoother. And the realme 11 Pro+ can’t do that.

Battery & Charging:

Despite having 120W of charging power, the Note 13 Pro+ can be fully charged in 23 minutes. Only in the first fifteen minutes does the Note 13 Pro+ have a modest advantage over the realme 11 Pro+. Better performance comes at a cost of reduced battery life, or perhaps the system has not yet been adjusted. So far, the 13 Pro+’s battery life is not regarded good.

Conclusion:

Unsurprisingly, the Note 13 Pro is a great phone to buy. There’s not much to complain about except that the performance and battery life is a bit worse than some certain phones. After all, budget phones always have trade-offs. It has better performance than realme 11 Pro+, better speakers and motors, and IP68. so out of the two phones, I would recommend the Note 13 Pro+.
