Xiaomi Redmi 13C



Xiaomi Redmi 13C is the successor of Redmi 12C, which has been very successful in the Bangladesh mobile industry. Now the question is if the new 13C model can carry on with the legacy. It provides an upstanding first impression of the design. It looks upgraded with a contemporary boxy shape, premium-looking back panel and camera design. The U-shape notch is pretty small and looks charming. The chin bezel has a visible thickness but still matches with the overall design. This is a proper outlook to carry in the year 2024 and is admirable in this budget. The body is made of plastic and there is no IP rated dust or splash resistance, which is a bit of a drawback. However, according to Xiaomi, it is dust/splash resistant without an IP rating. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, a very appreciated feature for the cost. It also has TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker Free certifications.

An HD+ IPS LCD screen is included, which has a 90Hz refresh rate option and a large 6.74-inch size. The color contrast and accuracy is splendid, so media consumption or gaming should be much more enjoyable. 600 nits peak brightness works good in regular conditions but it’s on the average side under direct sunlight. Its 50 MP primary camera can capture great-looking shots in good daylight atmospheres. Colors look on the spot, vivid with fine depth and you’ll see a fine amount of clarity. The night mode is also very useful. Portrait mode can capture natural-looking skin tones. Its 8 MP selfie shooter has a “soft light ring” feature, which can significantly improve the photo quality in low-light conditions. It has f2.0 aperture and HDR feature as well. The result here is also pleasing. Video recording quality is also likeable (up to 1080p@30fps) with both cameras, but there is no EIS stabilization, which is common for this price.

We got a 5000 mAh battery and 18W charging system. You can expect over a day backup for normal everyday operating and about 6 hours of screen on time for heavy utilization. The charging time is about two and a half hours. Its chipset remains the same 12 nm MediaTek Helio G85 as used in the Redmi 12C. There are 4, 6 and 8 GB RAM models with added virtual RAM facility. The 4 GB RAM model is ok for traditional needs such as internet browsing, calling and so on. For gamers, we recommend picking at least the 6 GB RAM model if you want a full-on smooth experience. Because you’ll see a bit of lag if you pick under 6 GB, even for a bit of heavy usage such as multitasking. There should be no heating issue in this device. Its sound quality is ordinary and there are no stereo speakers or Hi-Res audio. The fingerprint sensor is stationed on the side. Other features include 128 or 256 GB internal storage, a dedicated MicroSD slot, USB Type-C, FM Radio and so on.
