Anonymous, 16 Feb 2024I am totally confused! If there's no speakers, how do ... moreI also don't understand what it means because I buy this phone month ago and it's very nice and speaker is as normal as other phones.

    How can you call the contents, "trivial," when most phones only ship with a usb cable. Seriously!? Have you reviewed phones before?

      smaller battery Smaller screen

      Smaller screen is good, if I wanted a brick I'd buy S21 Plus (was available for $20 more) smaller battery comes with a smaller screen

      Slower charging
      noone cares, it's already very fast, but it has wireless charging, which is much more important. Also I can charge my smartwatch wirelessly with my phone, nice.

      No SD card slot
      I thought I cared (had several Redmis with it) but I really don't, 128GB is more than enough for me. I suppose that can be important for gamers.

      No 3.5mm jack
      Yep, that would be nice (i have some really nice headphones). There are usb-c audio adapters, but they can break.

      Only 64mp camera
      Noone cares about Mp, it's quality that matters. I had redmi note 10 pro (ok photos) and redmi 11 (awful), I'm pretty sure S21 photos is still better than subj.

      Also S21 has Esim. Not having Esims in 2024 is imho a deal breaker. Most important thing for phones now.

      Also S21 is faster than subj, though 3 years older.

            My refurbished S21 in excellent condition for $200 is much better than this in absolutely everything including software support.

              Just buy a redmi note 10 pro. It has better price and actual specs than the yet to come note 14 pro 5g plus.

                I am totally confused! If there's no speakers, how do I hear when somebody calls? Please someone explain because I liked it and going to buy after the weekend.

                  Power backup is very very poor. I had purchased on Jan 20th from Xiaomi Store Kakurgachi. 100% charge consume within 1 day and before finish 1.5 GB data.
                  So request you all think twice before purchase Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5GB.

                    Anonymous, 11 Feb 2024Good. Now let's replace that crap-o-led screen with ... moreBetter yet, a TFT with 65k colors

                        Years ago people started buying Redmi note devices beacuse they were true "Value for money" devices, Redmi series became the most profitable smartphone variants for Xiaomi, but then greed overcame Xiaomi, even after earning million dollars,they were not satisfied,they wanted more, so each year they kept on increasing the price, while releasing even more pricier variants like Pro, Plus, proplus, 5g, pro 5g plus 5g proplus 5g this that,, i mean just about anything, that can give them reasons to justify the price hike,
                        Their biggest market was India and Bangladesh, as Xiaomi Redmi devices were touted as most selling devices in those countries ,
                        But now, they are overtaken by newer smartphone brands like Inifinix / Techno. They clearly lost the market in these countries.

                            ashrobb, 10 Feb 2024Rumour has it the Redmi Note 14 series will bring a telepho... moreNice to hear, even if only a rumor for now 😄 The Realme 12 Pro+ pricing is actually close, so no reason it can't be done.

                              Anonymous, 10 Feb 2024Under display only if it's ultrasonic ones, the optica... moreNah, I've had no issues with an optical UD scanner the way I had issues with the side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

                                  If it didn't have crap-o-led I would buy it

                                    See those bezels, Samsung?

                                    Apparently, you can make a phone with minimal bezels at even below the price of your midranger, you just don't want to.
