Review Of the iPhone 13 Smartphone

After my old iPhone 8 didn’t receive the iOS 17 update, I started thinking about changing my phone. I didn’t particularly want to switch to Android, since I had already developed a habit of using Apple devices and the Apple ecosystem attracted me with its convenience and the fact that I already had an Apple Watch Series 4, which I didn’t want to write off because I couldn’t connect it to Android. Well, I wanted to buy something modern, with an OLED screen, from the Apple ecosystem, at least 128 GB of memory, since 64 is not enough and not very expensive. I wanted to keep it to 60-70 thousand, with the purchase of chargers, power banks and cases. 

This price includes several Apple phones. IPhone 11, 12/12 mini, 13/13 mini, 14. The option with iPhone 11 was canceled immediately, since this phone is already obsolete and has an IPS screen. Mini iPhones were not considered, they are too small and do not have many accessories and parts in case of emergency. 12, 13, or 14 – that is the question. Buying an iPhone 14 for 7-8 thousand more than an almost identical 13 does not make sense. The twelfth iPhone is also obsolete, so my choice fell on the iPhone 13.

Packaging and delivery

The scope of delivery of the 13th iPhone is very modest, but this goes back to the updated revision of the immortal 11th model. Apple is fighting for the environment by removing everything “unnecessary” from the kit, but in fact, the smaller box saves volume on airplanes and trucks. So, the delivery kit includes instructions, a warranty card, which has no special meaning in Pakistan, an apple sticker, a USB-C to Lightning cable, a paper clip for removing the SIM card tray, and, accordingly, the phone itself.

This kit does not fit in any way with the kit of my old iPhone 8, which, in addition to all of the above, included a power supply and headphones.

Phone appearance

Appearance of the device The appearance of Apple phones has remained virtually unchanged since 2019 – since the release of the iPhone 11, only in 2020, with the twelfth model, the edges became straight.

The innovation of the 13th model is diagonal cameras and a smaller “bang” where cameras and Face-ID sensors are located. As mentioned above, the phone is not very large, only 6.1 inches – not much by today’s standards, when the screen size of a modern phone can reach up to 7 inches and above. Together with the low size of the frames (their thickness is about three millimeters), the phone feels very small in the hand. Only the chopped edges spoil the impression a little, but even if you hold the smartphone in your hand for a long time in the case, the edges do not cut into your hands. The camera design is similar to the iPhone 14, and in general to the iPhone 15.

Two small circles of cameras of ~14 millimeters each are located diagonally. With or without a case, the phone is very wobbly when lying on the table.

My phone is pink. The pastel color is very beautiful, but it is not bright or pale.

There is nothing on the top edge of the device except a lone communication antenna.

On the right is the power button, on the left are the volume buttons and the silent mode switch lever. The tray for 1 SIM card is also on the left side.

At the bottom there is a lightning connector for charging and asymmetric grilles for the microphone and speaker.

Performance and interface

The smartphone is equipped with the Apple A15 bionic processor, released in 2021 along with the thirteenth line of iPhones. The chip contains 2 high-performance cores that are active in complex tasks and productive games, as well as 4 energy-efficient cores that work in ordinary tasks.

The graphics processor of this particular phone contains 4 cores, as in the 13 mini, while in the pro and pro max models the graphics are more powerful and contain 5 cores. But this does not affect the performance of the device in any way – all games and applications fly, no lags or problems were noticed. The smartphone is equipped with 4 gigabytes of RAM and 128, 256, 512 permanent memory. Let’s go through the synthetic tests:

AnTuTu Benchmark is a fairly popular benchmark that generally evaluates a phone, including performance in real life. The result is quite large: ~1,200,000 points. Smartphones with a Snapdragon 8+ gen 1 or 7+ gen 2 processor have a similar result.

GEEKBENCH is also a very popular test for the phone, but it in turn evaluates single-core and multi-core CPU performance as well as graphics.

Genshin impact is one of the heaviest games on iOS. Even it runs at 60 fps on ultra settings. This means that any games will run perfectly on this phone.

Separately, I would like to say a few words about iOS and the Apple ecosystem. Communication between the smartphone and the watch is best in class, if not at all. iOS – I really like it, but there are restrictions on payments via NFS, there are no banking applications, and so on. But at the same time I always really like iOS for its smoothness.

Screen

The phone screen is one of the most important ways to interact with your smartphone. The iPhone 13 screen measures 6.1 inches, has a resolution of 2532×1170 pixels, a density of 460 pixels per inch, and a maximum brightness of 1200 nits.

This brightness is enough even on the sunniest day. The fly in the ointment of the screen is the PWM, it is very large and can be seen even just through the phone’s camera, so a certain number of people may have eye pain from using this phone.

It supports True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts color temperature depending on the ambient light, as well as HDR technology.

Oleophobic coating prevents fingerprints and greasy marks from appearing on the screen. At the top of the screen there is a notch-like cutout for the front camera and Face ID sensors.

The screen has good color reproduction and contrast, as well as high image clarity. The only disappointing thing is the lack of increased Hertz frequency, at least 90 Hertz, and not 60 Hz.

Cameras

The iPhone 13 has three 12 megapixel cameras – two on the back and one on the front.

As mentioned above, there are only two cameras on the back, which is quite small and not typical for flagships (although the same Pixel 7 and 8 have 2 cameras each). The 12 megapixel main camera takes excellent photos, examples of which are given below.

Svershirik is also beautiful. This camera can also shoot in macro mode, which allows it to photograph small objects.

Examples of photos with zoom. The maximum digital zoom is x5, there is no optical zoom. (The first photo is x1, the second is x2, the third is x3).

Pro Tip: Asif Computers has a wide range available in the MacBook Air category if you are also looking to buy a MacBook Air for yourself then click on the MacBook Air price in Pakistan in our given link now.

Cameras have always been a strong point of iPhones, and the selfie camera is no exception.

The thirteenth iPhone can record video on all cameras in formats up to 4K 60FPS. Slow motion is supported up to 240 frames per second.

Conclusions

Now the iPhone 13 can be called the most optimal choice of phone from Apple. The battery lasts quite a long time, it can be charged either quickly via wire or using Mag safe accessories and chargers.

The processor handles all games and will allow the phone to work without problems for the next few years. The cameras also take great pictures. The design is still relevant. And up to 273,899 PKR the phone is excellent.
