All you need to know about the Xiaomi 13 smartphone.


Overview


Xiaomi first announced the Xiaomi 13 alongside Xiaomi 13 Pro in December 2022 in China. At MWC Barcelona, both smartphones were launched globally and are now available in the UK. At first glance, the smartphone offers excellent performance, has a great camera set-up, and has an impressive display. Also, you can expect these great features and specifications to cost less than the Xiaomi 13 Pro. We will test the Xiaomi 13 Pro and deliver the battery performance results soon.


As the latest Flagship device from Xiaomi, the Xiaomi 13 is a serious competitor within the Flagship/Pro (€700+). Building on the strengths of its predecessor, the Xiaomi 12, the Xiaomi 13 is well-designed, sleek in appearance and lightweight, making it comfortable to grip and convenient to use. The Xiaomi 13 has an impressive IP68 protection rating; offering added durability and peace of mind. Also, the high-quality display is larger than the Xiaomi 12, with outstanding brightness and vibrant colour reproduction, ensuring an excellent viewing experience when using different media types.

When Xiaomi published its Sustainability Report for 2020, it detailed the environmentally-conscious measures undertaken by the company. The packaging for the Xiaomi 13 demonstrates their continuous commitment to reducing plastic use for packaging. The smartphone is firmly in place, with only a solid white box with a substantial cupboard. Also in the box is a 67W charger, and the USB Type-A to Type-C cable is included; both are unique to Xiaomi. A TPU case is also packed in the box to safeguard your mobile phone, quite a thoughtful suggestion from Xiaomi.


The Xiaomi 13 offers a camera system co-engineered with Leica. This partnership has introduced iconic features like a 75mm Leica telephoto lens, enabling superior light sensitivity and excellent stabilisation performance, delivering clear and vivid photos and videos. The device also provides several connectivity options, including Wi-Fi. Bluetooth and USB-C make connecting to other devices and networks simple.

Benefitting from the latest and most advanced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the Xiaomi 13 provides exceptional performance and efficiency, significantly improving battery life. This device is powered by a 4500mAh battery and is supported by 67W wired charging, 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging. This helpful feature also makes it easy to use the device to charge smartwatches and earbuds wirelessly.

Smartphone Battery Performance Score

and Battery Performance Results


We have designed and developed Battery Performance Labels to help Smartphone users.


Translated into the ViserMark Labels, below are the battery performance test results for the Xiaomi 13.



Our experts are asked to test more than 100 Smartphones every year. As an independent mobile phone testing environment, SmartViser measures key areas of user experience.

More details can be found on how we perform our smartphone testing here.

 

Look at the review by ViserMark based on the results during testing. You can find the full results of our battery performance testing below:


Smartphone Battery Performance Overall Score:


The Battery Performance Label shows a score between 0 and 100. It reflects the performance based on independent, repeatable, and rigorous testing.


Using various testing criteria, measured using real-life scenarios and live networks, results collated with calculations from Battery Life, Power Efficiency and Charging results that amount to the total score.


The Xiaomi 13 achieved an impressive battery performance score of 43 out of 100. Our verdict was reached after testing this device, and compared to similar devices with the Flagship Tier, the Xiaomi 13 was well-equipped. The recently tested Samsung Galaxy S23 scored 41 out of 100, as did the Sony BQ-BQ52, both slightly lower than the Xiaomi 13 in overall battery performance. Take a look at the chart shown below.


Comparison of Smartphones in the Flaghship/Pro Tier


When comparing the Flagship smartphones: The Xiaomi 13 was released initially in December 2022, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The Samsung Galaxy S23, powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, was released 2 months later.


Regarding overall battery performance, the Xiaomi 13 has a battery capacity of 4500mAh, and the Samsung Galaxy S23 has 3900mAH; therefore, an additional 600mAh can be found in the Xiaomi 13, contributing to a better smartphone performance by only 2 points.
