The Mobile World Congress (MWC 2023) was the scenario chosen for the global launch of the Xiaomi 13, 13 Pro and 13 Lite smartphones. And now it’s time to test the middle model.

It features Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 platform, 6.36″ AMOLED E6 screen with FHD+ resolution and 120Hz, 8/12 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage, three rear cameras (54/50 MP / 12 MP / 10 MP), 32MP front camera, 5G SA/NSA connectivity, Dual SIM, Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi 7, USB-C, NFC and GPS, Stereo audio with Dolby Atmos, 4,500mAh battery with 67W wired charging, 50W wireless and 10W reverse, IP68 and Corning Gorilla Glass 5, plus Android 13 OS under MIUI 14.

Our official battery test is run with many popular apps, games and services in timed cycles until the battery is completely depleted, with standby time being given between cycles to track background consumption. Screen brightness and network settings are standardized so that we can draw a parallel between all the models that have passed through our benches.

The apps present in the cycles, and their specific execution times per cycle, are:

  • 6 minutes of use (each) — WhatsApp, YouTube, MX Player (offline video), Spotify, PowerAmp (offline music) and Chrome;
  • 1 minute (each) — Pokémon Go, Asphalt 8, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5, and Injustice;
  • 4 minutes of 3G/4G calls;
  • 2 minutes of use (each) — Facebook, Gmail and GMaps

The Xiaomi 13 is available on Amazon for BRL 4,994. The cost-benefit is average but this is the best model in this price range. To see the other 5 offers click here.
