Samsung is back with another M series smartphone, the Galaxy M13 5G is available at Rs 13,999 for 4GB of Ram and 64GB storage while another 6GB of Ram and 128GB storage is priced at Rs 15,999 in India.
The device is available in Midnight Blue, Aqua Green, and Stardust Brown color options. It will go for sale on 23rd July 2022 at noon via Amazon.
So if you wanted to buy the Galaxy M13 5G then let’s see whether it’s worth the 14k price tag or not?
Is it Worth Buying Samsung Galaxy M13 5G?
No, the Galaxy M13 5G is not worth buying because it only has an HD LED display with 400 nits brightness, average cameras, only 15W charging support, plastic build, unspecified 5G Bands, decent processor, and still, Samsung is charging Rs 13999 which is not justifiable at all.
- Rear Cameras: 50MP primary sensor + 2MP depth sensor
- Front Cameras: 5MP Front
- 1080p@30fps Video shoot
The device has 50MP + 2MP rear and 5MP front cameras,
Now that the 2MP sensor is not useable at all, it’s added for showcase because Samsung can’t just launch a smartphone with a single rear camera, it doesn’t look great.
The 50MP sensor doesn’t do much either, it takes good images under good lighting, also, most of the images are saturated too. Under low light, things will get crazy because the images don’t look that great, no sign of details, mess up the dynamic range too.
Just like we forget the 2MP sensor, you should also forget that the device has 5MP front cameras.
- 6.50-inches HD LED display
- 400 nits pick the brightness
- 720 x 1600 pixels resolutions
- WaterDrop Notch
- Gorilla Glass 3 (front)
- 90Hz refresh rate
- 270 PPI density
For your reference, we have phones with 120Hz AMOLED display, 120hz LED display, and 90hz OLED display under Rs 15000 in India but Samsung decided to go with 6.50-inches 90Hz LED display.
The brightness is also not that good, the 400 nits brightness is not good enough to use a smartphone outdoors. By the way, the device has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
- MediaTek MT6833 Dimensity 700 Processor
- OneUI 4.0 Core – Android 12
The MediaTek MT6833 Dimensity 700 is a decent processor, so don’t expect to play heavy games. For day-to-day use, you will see some frame drops here and there. It runs on OneUI 4 Core based on Android 12, there is no mention of how many OS updates this device will get.
In short, you will be able to use social media and a little bit of gaming.
- 5000mAh non-removable battery
- 15W charging support
The 5000mAh battery will last for a day but the 15W charger will take hall lot of time to charge from 0% to 100.
Still, in the end, it will depend on how you use the smartphone.
- Single Speaker
- 3.5mm Audio Jack
It only has a single speaker at the bottom which doesn’t;t sound that great, we have tons of smartphones at Rs 13999 that offer dual speakers.
By the way, the device doesn’t have carrier aggregation but it does have a 3.5mm, Audio Jack.
I will say the same thing again, if you’re that person who doesn’t like any other smartphones then Samsung’s then the Galaxy M13 5G could be a good smartphone to consider.
Now, for those who want to buy value for money device, just stay away from the Galaxy M13 5G…
Still, have any questions, do let me know in the comments.
