The Xiaomi 13 Pro is one of the best camera phones you can buy, and it’s also one of the fastest charging phones available.
The Xiaomi 13 Pro is a camera-led smartphone which isn’t just one of the best phones for photography, it also matches or beats most rivals in other areas, like charging speed and screen specs.
The camera though is certainly the star, because the Xiaomi 13 Pro has a 1-inch sensor for its 50MP primary camera. That means its sensor is larger than those found on most other smartphones – including the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
A larger sensor can let more light in, and generally leads to stronger photographic performance, and the Xiaomi 13 Pro additionally has a 50MP ultra-wide camera and a 50MP telephoto, offering 3.2x optical zoom. Most phones – even expensive ones – have fewer megapixels in their secondary sensors, but here you can get high-quality, detail-rich photos no matter what lens you choose.
Moving beyond the cameras, the Xiaomi 13 Pro also has a big 6.73-inch 1440 x 3200 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate – specs which are in line with the very best smartphone screens around.
And the Xiaomi 13 Pro has most rivals beat when it comes time to charge, because its 4,820mAh battery can be juiced up at a remarkable 120W. That’s enough to go from nought to 100% in just 19 minutes. Even wireless charging is fast here, topping out at an impressive 50W.
The Xiaomi 13 Pro also has plenty of power, with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset (also found in the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S23 range) and 12GB of RAM.
It has an under-display fingerprint sensor too, plus water resistance and stereo speakers, making for an all-round flagship package.
