Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus Review: Only the Realme brand from the BBK group can truly compete with Xiaomi’s budget sub-brand Redmi, which is known for producing some of the best value phones available. Redmi’s most recent Note series of phones maintains this tradition by offering a range of prices that seem to be targeted towards more cost-conscious customers in Southeast Asia, Latin America, and parts of Europe. But, the Note 13 Pro Plus, the top variant, caught my attention because it looks and feels the most luxurious Redmi phone to date.
Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus Display & Price In USA
With a 120Hz refresh rate, the curved OLED screen of the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus feels just as good in the hand as the curved screens of expensive $1,000 phones. For a low-cost Redmi phone, the resolution of 2712 x 1200 and the brightness of 1800 nits are both excellent.
I think the phone’s back design, which features an artistic pattern and a pastel color scheme, is really beautiful.

With a 1/1.4-inch image sensor and Gorilla Glass Victus protection, the device features a 200-megapixel Samsung camera as well as a sizable 5,000 mAh battery. Thus far, all of these parts are high-end. The phone reverts to mid-range status due to its inferior Mediatek Dimensity 7200 Ultra chip, subpar ultra-wide camera, lack of a zoom lens, and official IP water resistance designation.
Nevertheless, the $380 price of the phone (converted from the India retail price) means you really can’t grumble too much there, and the Mediatek chipset is more than powerful enough for daily use.
Specifically, the primary camera performs admirably, employing 16-in-1 pixel binning to capture images that significantly beyond its price range. When taking nighttime photos, there is some motion blur because the shutter speed is a little slower than on some of the best flagship phones I use. But once more, I can’t complain for a phone at this pricing.
With some of the smoothest animations available, Xiaomi’s software offers a full day of battery life. All things considered, this is the most luxurious Redmi phone to date and the closest a phone under $400 has come to feeling like a flagship model.
