Apple iPhone 13 Review

In early September 2021, Apple introduced an enviable batch of new devices. One of the expected devices was the iPhone 13. It is designed to be at a democratic price and to provoke the strongest interest among consumers.


Although the design of the iPhone 13 is very similar to that of the previous generation, there are a few notable differences that are noticeable at first glance. First of all, we have a significantly narrower, but higher stripe at the top of the device, typical of each model of the brand. This is good, because the useful space for visualizing information has become larger given that the screen size is unchanged - 6.1 inches. The second significant difference is that the device is slightly thicker and heavier than its predecessor. In everyday use, however, you will hardly notice this. So it cannot be defined as a minus.

There are also differences on the back panel. Turn the iPhone 13 over and you'll notice that its cameras are positioned diagonally, not vertically. It is an interesting fact that all the technical inscriptions that were previously present on one of the pages have disappeared from the device.


iPhone 13 is equipped with an exciting 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels. Compared to the 2020 model, the brightness is higher. Now it reaches 13,800 nits! The user can hardly perceive this in practice, but if he stands in the sun, the information on the screen will be perfectly visible. This is a convenience that no one will refuse.

The display of the iPhone 13 is covered with Ceramic Shield protective glass. According to the Cupertino-based company, it is even more scratch-resistant.


Apple smartphones are expected to perform at a leadership level. This is exactly what can be expected from the democratic iPhone 13. The A15 Bionic processor is placed under its beautiful body. There is no criticism of his work. The smartphone works extremely fast. It handles all difficult tasks with ease, whether you're playing games or editing videos in the iMovie app.

Apple has long made history as one of the innovators in terms of mobile processors. The fact is that so far no competitor of the company has been able to come close to the results that A14 Bionic shows in synthetic tests. What's left for the latest chip!


Once Apple's new smartphone comes out, one of the main tasks of analysts is to assess the skills of the new cameras. Compared to the previous generation, the photo capabilities of the iPhone 13 have improved. The camera captures 47% more light and has received a matrix stabilization function (known from the iPhone 12 Pro Max). Thus, the company cleverly transferred the camera from its former top model to the most democratic iPhone in the 2021/2022 season.

With the iPhone 13 in hand, you'll shoot more than well. You have a wide selection of modes, among which the most popular are of course portraits, cityscapes, night photos and more. All shots are clear, detailed and saturated.

The Cinema Effect function, which works in an interesting way, deserves special attention. When shooting a video, you can focus on a closer subject first, and then shift the focus to a farther one. This is done by tapping the screen once.

Another interesting feature of the iPhone 13 is the ability to shoot video with 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.

Since Apple smartphones are capable of real masterpieces when it comes to photos and videos, we advise you not to save money and take a modification with a larger storage - 256 or 512 GB.

Autonomous work

With a full charge, the iPhone 13 is able to provide you with better battery life than the previous generation. Now the device works with 2 hours more. This is a worthy achievement and should be highly valued. Tests show that in mixed mode you can reach for the charger only after 3 days.

The device is equipped with a non-removable lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 3240 mAh. 20W fast charging technology is supported. This way you can restore 50% of the battery charge in just 30 minutes.


iPhone 13 is an excellent representative of the Apple family. It will meet all user expectations. There is no other such device with the same screen diagonal and performance on the market. With it you will feel wonderful both outdoors and indoors. A real temptation for fans of the American company!
