If a person wants to buy a new smartphone Then he will naturally want to buy a 5G smartphone Although in every category, whether it is mid-premium or premium, you only get 5G smartphones. But when we talk about budget-friendly smartphones so you get more options. But now an option has come. This is the Redmi 13C from Xiaomi.
And this handset comes with 5G support. And this handset’s pricing is budget-friendly. When you are Reading this BlogPost, you must have got information about the pricing. But when I made this BlogPost, I had no idea about the pricing. There was a hint that its pricing will be under Rs. 12,000. Now you know its exact pricing.
Redmi 13C 5G
And I think that because it is a Xiaomi brand so naturally the pricing will also be good. So if you are thinking of buying a budget-friendly 5G smartphone, Let’s check the performance of this Redmi 13C. In this BlogPost, I am going to give you some more information. Especially about people who create confusion.
And I have also done 5G testing. I have also done 5G testing with Jio and with Airtel. But the speed that I got with Airtel, I did not expect. Just looking like a wow. Keep Reading. This is the box packing of Redmi 13C 5G. This is a made in India product. And it comes with 256GB storage space. And it comes with 16GB RAM.
There is actually a small star here. By the way, you will get the details on the backside. It comes with 8GB RAM. which is extra 8GB is virtual RAM. See, it is clearly mentioned here. And the variant that I have got is the star trail green color variant. Key specifications are mentioned behind the box. Let’s unbox it.
Inside the box, you will get this handset. This is a SIM tray ejector pin. This is a booklet. This is a cable. And this is a 10W charger. By the way, this handset comes with 18W charging support. The design of this handset is also very unique. It comes with a stylish star trail design. By the way, honestly, I did not like its design so much.
By the way, it looks good. But I usually prefer that the design of the handset is simple and elegant. Which you can basically use anywhere. Its design looks like a party type. But most of the users are going to use a case on it anyway. So I don’t think so that if you don’t like this design, then this will be a negative point for you.
The frame is made of plastic. And see how the handset is in lighting condition. The handset is showing different types of textures. Whenever a brand makes a smartphone for a specific category, then it pays attention to a lot of things. And especially the important features of the users of that category. And they give more importance to those who are going to use it.
Now this smartphone comes with a budget-friendly price tag. So you will not get everything in this. Whatever is given in it is quite good in terms of pricing. I am assuming that its pricing will be under Rs. 12,000. So it will be very good. Unfortunately, the biggest issue in our country, especially on YouTube is that there are a lot of people who try to find some shortcomings But the specifications are in place.
Analyzing the quality of the product is in place. And understanding the technology used is also very important. The number of buyers is less and the number of those who do not buy is more. And these users are some users who do not have to buy them, but they have to spread the raita unnecessarily. They are tensed by other people.
Because anyway they are not going to buy themselves. Stay away from such people. And these people, whenever they like a phone, although they do not have to buy it, but they like the phone, then they become an environmentalist. They start talking about a lot of trees. Like there is a tree review, there is this tree, there is that tree.
Anyway, the usage pattern of each user is different. If you ask a gaming user which smartphone to buy, then he will tell you about high-end smartphones. And if you ask a person who is not a gaming user, then he will recommend you a different smartphone. So you see your usage pattern, and decide according to that which smartphone you want to buy.
You must have seen that a lot of people do such things. And open a lot of applications. To show how powerful the handset is, or whether it is powerful or not. Who does this? Now see, the normal user will go to the application that he wants to load slowly. Or if he is smart, he will search directly. I normally prefer to search.
I have a lot of applications on smartphones. So this is a very fast option. And as I said, it is very important to understand technology. Now see, when you use the handset for the first time, then during that time the handset is going to get heated up. A lot of applications are going to be installed in it.
At that time, if you do testing, then naturally the results will not be good. And the handset, as I said, will get heated up. And the performance will also drop. You must have seen that some people, when a new handset comes, then on the second or third day they start complaining that this is the problem, this is not happening, that is not happening.
The applications are running slowly. This happens because when you start using the handset, then the handset is not optimized. As you start using the handset, the applications that you use the most, the handset optimizes those applications. The software optimizes. And eventually you will note that after a few weeks or a few months, the performance of the handset improves.
You get smooth performance. Plus the battery life also improves. So if a new smartphone has been launched and there is some negativity on it, then do not react to it immediately. Because after optimization, the handset is going to improve. Plus software updates also keep coming. The most important feature of this handset is 5G support.
And I will test the 5G speed and tell you. Because the speed of the Airtel is impressive. See this is the 5G test. I am getting the 5G plus sign here. And the download speed is 353 Mbps. And the upload speed is 18 Mbps. I am using Reliance Jio’s sim. And now I have replaced the same with the Airtel. And here I am getting the speed of the Airtel.
It is of the wow level. Just looking like a wow. It has a download speed of 563 Mbps. And the upload speed is also impressive. 51 Mbps. And this is the 5G network of the Airtel. MediaTek Dimensity 6100 Plus processor is used in this. And this is its performance. I run N22 benchmark on it. And I got this score which is quite good.
You will get a decent performance around 4 lakhs. I have tried to play this World War Heroes game. There was some error in it. So I am trying this second game. This is Modern Combat 5. And this game is actually running very well on this The users of this category are usually not going to play games. But you must have got a better idea than this.
That how much performance this handset can give. What level of performance it can give. You can play games on it to some extent. In fact, this handset is very good for BlogPost Reading. Because you are getting a 5G network. You will get a good speed. And the biggest advantage of 5G is that since I started using 5G, when I used to go to the airport, I used to use the airport WiFi.
To download movies so that I can watch them on the plane. But since I started using 5G, even at the last moment, I mean the plane is getting ready for takeoff on the runway. Even during that time, if I want, I can download the movie. 5G is so fast. The display is quite big. The users of this category watch content by increasing it.
The display is 6.74 inches diagonally. And it comes with HD plus resolution. The bezels are also quite big. The chin below is also big. But I think it is acceptable in this price. Those who do not want to buy it, can use it as an excuse. By the way, the handset comes with support of 60Hz or 90Hz refresh rate.
And the good thing is that it has Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The quality of the display is quite good. Although, it would have been better with HD plus if it was full HD plus. But because of that, the pricing was increasing. Those who do not want to buy the handset, this is also an excuse. Who is it? HD plus.
See i do not cover the pros and cons. Because today it has become subjective. Like HD plus is given in this. And some people will say that it should be full HD plus. So again, it depends on preference. And when you talk about budget friendly smartphones, you will not get everything in that price. Some things will be less.
The level of performance will be less. But ultimately you have to see the overall package. And I think this handset 13C is very good. It is very good for BlogPost Reading. But this handset has given a single speaker. The combination of RAM and ROM is also very good. It has LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.2 storage. Here on the rear side, there is a 50MP AI dual camera.
It comes with F1.8 aperture. And the front camera is 5MP. This is the camera interface. Photo mode is given. HDR option. You can turn it on or off. It is better to keep it on. And 2x option is given. In fact, it can zoom in to 10x maximum. There is no wide angle option in this. And you can select the options from here.
In BlogPost mode, you can record maximum 1080p BlogPosts at 30fps. And there is no stability option in this. See, all these options are available. This handset can record BlogPosts in high resolution. It gives a better idea of how powerful this handset is. And see, this is time lapse. This is portrait. And from here, you can set the aperture.
You can set how much blur you want in the background. And night mode is given, which is a good thing. And 50MP option is given. Now in some options, for example, in the photo, you get these filters options. You can use these too. You can get a very good output. Let’s check the quality of the camera. See, I have shot this portrait shot in this lighting condition.
And if I zoom in, you can see that the grains are not so sharp. And see that, I have shot this shot on outdoors. If I zoom in here, you can see that it is not so sharp. But comparatively, outdoors, because the lighting condition was good, the shot is very good. And see, this is another shot. And this is a long shot.
And here I have used different filter options. This changes the look and feel to a large extent. If you share these shots on social networks, it will look very good. But if you try to see it on the computer and zoom in, then it is not so special. Low light shots are fine. Again, if I zoom in here, then the clarity is not so good.
You do not get the option of stability even during BlogPost recording. See, I am recording this BlogPost while walking The camera quality is of its average level. And as I said, if you want to share it on social networks, then it is quite good for that. But if you want to use the camera professionally, then it is not good for that.
And anyway, in this price segment, you will not get the best camera. The more you spend, the better hardware and quality you will get. Battery performance will be quite good. Because it has a 5000 mAh battery. And this is a standard. And with 5G support, definitely. The more the battery, the better. Here The SIM slots dual SIM slots come with dual 5G support.
You can use Jio SIM or Airtel SIM with 5G. Both can be used in SIM slots. This comes with a triple slot. This is the power button and this is the side fingerprint sensor. Volume rockers. This has an audio jack. This is the SIM tray. And at the bottom, there is a speaker out vent. Type-C port. And this is the microphone.
This is a budget 5G smartphone. MIUI 14 is running out of the box. And if we talk about the Android version, it is 13. So friends, this is the Redmi 13C 5G. How did you like its pricing? And how did you like the handset in general?
