Deals: Redmi Note 13 series, Xiaomi 14 series and others get discounts

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro+ launched late last year, so it’s no spring chicken but it is still a competitive offering, especially with the latest discounts. The phone packs a 200MP main camera (Samsung HP3 sensor) that does an impressive job during the day and at night, with great 2x in-sensor zoom and decent results at 4x. The phone has a bright, premium display, a Dimensity 7200 chipset and a 5,000mAh battery with 120W fast charging.

For €40-50 less, you can get the Redmi Note 13 Pro instead. It’s very similar, though it changes to a flat display, a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset and UFS 2.2 storage (vs. UFS 3.1). Also, the battery has 5,100mAh capacity and charges at 67W. Check out our versus article for a detailed comparison of the two.

Cheaper still is the Redmi Note 13 (5G). This one features the Dimensity 6080 and a 108MP main camera. The display has 1080p+ resolution instead of 1220p+ and charging for the 5,000mAh battery is down to 33W. Note that the upgrade to 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage is only €20.

Instead of the Pro+, you can have the OnePlus Nord 3. It focuses on more processing power (Dimensity 9000) instead of camera prowess (the 50MP 1/1.56” main camera is nice, but no match for the Redmi Note). It has a large, high-quality display of its own, 6.74” 1240p+ OLED, and a 5,000mAh battery with 80W charging.

Instead of the vanilla Redmi Note 13, you should consider the Poco X6 instead. It has a better display – 1220p+ 12-bit panel with Dolby Vision and up to 1,800 nits brightness – and a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset. Also, the 5,100mAh battery is faster with 67W charging. However, the 64MP main camera is pretty basic.

The Xiaomi 14 is from the company’s premium brand. It features a 6.36” LTPO OLED display, making it smaller than most Androids, and a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The triple 50MP camera includes a 75mm (3.2x) telephoto lens and the 4,610mAh battery supports fast wired (90W) and wireless (50W) charging.

Right now, the Xiaomi 14 and Samsung Galaxy S24 are basically the same price. The S24 is smaller (around 6mm shorter, 1mm narrower and 0.6mm thinner) and lighter (167g vs. 188g) and its 6.2” OLED display is at long last an LTPO panel (1080p+ resolution). However, Europe got the Exynos 2400 version this year, still with only 8GB of RAM. And the 10MP 67mm (3x) telephoto lens is no match for the Xiaomi, neither is the 12MP ultra wide. Not much to show in the battery department either, with 4,000mAh capacity, 25W wired and 15W wireless charging.

The Asus Zenfone 10 is cheaper than these two, but is also older – it is a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 device. It is still the latest small flagship from Asus as the Zenfone 11 Ultra never got a small companion. The 5.92” 144Hz display is smaller than what the Samsung has and the phone itself is only marginally smaller. It has a 4,300mAh battery with 30W wired and 15W wireless charging. The Zenfone has a 3.5mm headphone jack, but no microSD slot.

The Xiaomi 14 Ultra is one of the best camera phones of 2024. It has a quad 50MP camera, but with a 1”-type sensor in the main (vs. 1/1.31” for the vanilla Xiaomi 14), plus the 75mm tele module is joined by a 120mm periscope. This is a large phone with a 6.73” QHD+ display and a 5,000mAh battery with 90W wired and 80W wireless charging.

Xiaomi 14 Ultra

It competes with the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra at very similar price points. The S24 Ultra has a 6.8” QHD+ display with an S Pen. The quad camera includes a 200MP 1/1.3” main, 10MP 67mm and 50MP 111mm telephoto and 12MP ultra wide modules. The 5,000mAh battery does only 45W wired and 15W wireless charging.
