    Fantastic phone. I change my Xiaomi Mi 9SE and this is 12/512 working perfectly. Screen is great, but sometimes you need to put in manual mode brightness on high daylight or in dark room. Picture quality is good, but I expected to be fantastic. Sound is perfect. Dust and water protection is perfect. I dropped from the boat in the sea and nothing happened, working perfectly. More than satisfied.

  • Powerful compact device

    If you're in the market for a speedy device with an impressive rear camera and a smooth 120 Hz screen, this is a solid recommendation at around $700. Plus, it comes with the added benefits of dual SIM support, NFC, and wireless charging.

    The rear camera performs admirably, nearly matching those found in iPhones and Samsung devices within the same price bracket. On the flip side, the front camera, sourced from Omnivision, falls slightly short in terms of sensor quality and features. It tends to produce unstable exposure, often on the overexposed side, and can only record at 1080p/30fps.
    Battery life maxes out at about 1.5 days with typical use, but it's worth noting that the device tends to get quite warm during charging and gaming, reaching temperatures of up to 47 degrees Celsius in extreme cases. This warmth is perceptible on the outer surface due to the device's metal frame and glass back.

    I'm optimistic that these issues will be addressed through future updates.

  • Great all-rounded flagship that can last very long

    The whole 13 line from Xiaomi this year has a very simple yet eye-catching camera island. Great OLED screen with fantastic color and an always-on display. 67W charging is more than plenty for most people (takes around 40 minutes to top up from 0-100). No headphone jack but has Dolby Atmos sound, above average loudspeakers. The IR blaster is a niche feature, but I do appreciate it being there. Selfie camera is blurry though, best to only use it for video call. Same goes for the ultrawide, fringing in low lights and pictures with a lot of noise. The telephoto and main cameras are absolutely fantastic though.

  • Terrible ram management

    I've received this phone just yesterday, as it was supposed to replace my water damaged Motorola X40.
    I have used it for a several hours but decided to sell it.
    As for a comparison between mi13 and x40:
    Mi 13 (CN rom):
    Many more details in zoomed photos
    Much better video stabilization (even without eis)
    No screen flickering on max brightness
    Many options in miui
    Much less comfortable to hold than xiaomi mi6
    A bit more comfortable to hold than x40
    Bottom speaker is easy to cover when gaming
    Top speaker is significantly weaker
    TERRIBLE RAM management (kills last app after few minutes when using other app. Disabling miui optimization didn't change anything).
    Stock screen protector was useless (distorting image and touch)
    Has no macro camera
    Has micro stutters in animations
    Faster face & fingerprint unlock
    Speaker loudness and clarity is worse than in X40.
    After 5minutes using camera app it got bugged.
    Is warmer (leather version) + thermal protection kicked in after 10min of benchmark dropping refresh rate and brightness
    Refresh rate switches only between 60 and 120hz
    No 4k using EIS
    Battery life using messenger & browser was 50min for 10% on wifi (slightly worse than X40)
    No hdmi output via usb C
    It has AOD
    No option to record video without microphone
    Using front facing camera with screen "flashlight" doesn't turn up the screen brightness

    Pros
    • Good camera
    Cons
    • Speakers
    • Ram management

    Great companion for a longer time

    Great device, I got rid of my beloved MiMix2s and found my way to this phone via Pixel7, Mi 12 and Iphone13. It is super compact and very fast, the battery, the photo quality and the MIUI operating system convince me across the board, a great device and hopefully a loyal companion for the next few years, like my Mix2s....

    Pros
    • photo
    • battery pack
    • Weight
    • Connection
    • Super bright display, finally waterproof
    • plenty of accessories online
    Cons

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
