The Redmi Note 13 5G has a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with an extended 1080p resolution (395ppi). It supports a supposedly adaptive 120Hz refresh rate and 1,920Hz PWM dimming. Some markets, like Spain, will also get this phone with a 10-bit color depth panel.

A sheet of Gorilla Glass 5 handles the protection.


According to the official specifications, the screen has up to 1,000nits of peak brightness.

We captured 488nits of maximum brightness when controlling the brightness slider manually.

When using the Auto Brightness mode or with the Sunlight Boost enabled, the screen can be a lot brighter - 991 nits, to be specific. Oddly, the (under screen) ambient light sensor misbehaved and often did not react to the bright light immediately, or at all. It took us a lot of attempts to make the screen increase the brightness.

The minimum brightness at point white was just 1.9 nit.


Refresh rate

The display supports up to 120Hz refresh rate, and there are two refresh modes - Custom (choose between 120Hz or 60Hz refresh rates), and Default (automatic switching behavior).


The adaptive refresh rate works as expected - it drops down to 60Hz when the screen shows static content. All streaming apps are capped at 60Hz for UI and streaming, too. And, of course, incompatible HFR apps such as the Camera app and Google Maps are always rendered at 60fps.

The adaptiveness is available for the dedicated 120Hz mode as well, but a few more apps, could go up to 120Hz as opposed to the default mode.

HDR video

There is no HDR video support for the Redmi Note 13 5G. Widevine DRM is level L1, which means you can stream in 1080p resolution.

Battery life

Our new Active Use Score is an estimate of how long the battery will last if you use the device with a mix of all four test activities. You can adjust the calculation based on your usage pattern using the sliders below. You can read about our current battery life testing procedure here. For a comprehensive list of all tested devices so far, head this way.

The Redmi Note 13 5G has the same size screen and battery as the rest of the Note 13 models, plus its chipset should offer good energy efficiency.

Unfortunately, that is not the case. The Redmi Note 13 5G scored 9 hours and 49 minutes of Active Use Time. And while it can last over 34 hours in call, it scores about 9 hours of web, 10 hours of videos and less than 6 hours on gaming - all quite unimpressive battery times.
