All you need to know about the Xiaomi 13 Pro smartphone.


Overview


Xiaomi has tried hard to improve both design and performance. In March 2023, the global launch of the Xiaomi 13 and the Xiaomi 13 Pro as Flagship smartphones passed expectations. Also, with a new partnership with Leica, known for its imaging philosophy and emotive imaging aesthetics, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has benefitted from a great camera system complete with a professional optical lens.

With both new Xiaomi devices joining the Flagship/Pro Tier (€700+), they are both unique in look and appearance. The Xiaomi 13 Pro is larger and weighs 229g, is one of the heavier smartphones with the Flagship/Pro tier. It has a curvier design and looks like other Android devices, unlike the Xiaomi 13, which is more aligned with the design of an iPhone.


The Xiaomi 13 Pro is well-built and looks impressive. It is easy to hold and use with a larger AMOLED display of 6.73 inches than the Xiaomi 13, with 6.36 inches. Also, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has added protection with a Gorilla Glass Victus front, unlike the Xiaomi 13, which has Gorilla Glass 5. Both smartphones have water and dust resistance and are IP68 rated, unlike the Xiaomi 12 series.


The Xiaomi 13 Pro runs the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor making it competitive against other Flagship smartphones regarding performance. It has 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256 GB of internal storage, supports Wi-Fi 7 as well as Bluetooth 5.3 and comes with dual SIM.


The most exciting feature Xiaomi has introduced on the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro is the impressive camera system, co-engineered with Leica. Benefitting from wide, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses, the design of the camera app is faster and easier to use. Also, a 1-inch ultra-large sensor provides a massive light-sensitive area, more powerful light absorption and better imaging resolution.


Product - Good Points


The Xiaomi 13 Pro has the following features:

  • improved design and performance

  • 1-inch ultra larger sensor for better photography

  • high-quality triple camera system with Leica lenses

  • Sharp WQHD+ resolution (522 PPI)

  • fast charging battery

  • good battery life

  • guaranteed Android and Security updates


Product - Be Aware of Points


The Xiaomi 13 Pro lacks in performance in the following ways:

  • heavier than other smartphones

  • glossy display prone to smears

  • some issues with battery saver mode

  • various storage and colours available depending on market

 

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, the battery performance test results for the device Xiaomi 13 Pro are below.


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:


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




Xiaomi 13 Pro Smartphone Battery Performance Score


In our recent testing, the battery performance test results delivered an overall score of

39 out of a hundred for the Xiaomi 13 Pro. When viewing the ViserMark Flagship/Pro Tier (€700+), other manufacturers with the latest regular smartphones have similar results, as shown in the chart below.


Comparison of Smartphones in the Flaghship/Pro Tier


As you can see, the Xiaomi 13 Pro obtained an overall battery performance score of 39, with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S23+ being 1 point lower with 38. The Google 7 Pro achieved 32 out of hundred.


When we look closely at the Xiaomi 13 Pro, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and was launched in December 2022. One month later, the Samsung Galaxy S23+ was released, powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy. The overall battery performance of both these smartphones was very comparative, only separated by 1 mark. However, some key differences exist between the Xiaomi 13 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S23+. The Xiaomi 13 Pro features include a higher pixel density and 3.2x optical zoom, although the Samsung Galaxy S23+ is lighter in weight and has a slightly longer battery life.


The Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro were launched in October 2022. Even though the overall battery performance obtained a lower score of 32 out of one hundred, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is a great and well-designed smartphone. Like the other comparative devices, it captures beautiful images at night and during the day and has exceptional camera features. Also, the Pixel 7 Pro, powered by a Tensor G2 chipset, is optimised for Google-specific AI. Photos can be made clear using Real Tone technology, and it recognises speech more accurately, making Google Assistant more useful.


The Xiaomi 13 Pro is the latest flagship smartphone with one of the best camera systems in 2023. We are looking forward to testing the iPhone 14 Pro and the Galaxy S23 Ultra when it comes to smartphone battery performance.

Battery Life


Battery Life - How long will this Smartphone battery last?


The Battery Life ViserMark Label displays the “Days-of-Use” in both actual days and provides accurate information in hours. It reflects the usage of a smartphone from a full charge.


Xiaomi 13 Pro Smartphone Battery Life Ratings


The Xiaomi 13 Pro has a battery capacity of 4820mAh, slightly larger than the 4500mAh of the Xiaomi 13. It delivers 1.5 days of usage, translating into 46 hours. The Google Pixel 7 Pro delivers the same 1.5 days of usage, despite only lasting 37 hours and having the largest battery of 5000mAh. Google does state that Pixel’s Adaptive Battery can last over 24 hours – and up to 72 hours when you turn on Extreme Battery Saver.


The Samsung Galaxy S23+ has 4700mAh, only a slightly smaller battery capacity, yet delivers half a day more, with 49 hours delivered. With the extra 3000mAh battery capacity and the Snapdragon Gen 2 chipset, the Galaxy S23+ "delivers much better-sustained performance than last year," a recent announcement post stated.


Comparison of Smartphones in the Flaghship/Pro Tier


A short time ago, ViserMark introduced the Hours metric to the Battery Life ViserMark Label to provide further detail about battery usage; consequently, the Xiaomi 13 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S23+ are much more comparative than previously considered.
