The Galaxy A13 is one of the latest entry-level phones in the Galaxy A family, the 4G variant already available in India and Europe has arrived for review. There’s also the Galaxy A13 5G with a 90Hz screen and a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, but otherwise it’s very similar to our 4G model.
It should be noted that the Galaxy A13 isn’t the lowest entry-level in the Galaxy A family, as it’s still higher than the Galaxy A03. Samsung has been very busy developing its line recently, unfortunately. This means we ended up with a number of similar tools. a lot.
The body of the Samsung Galaxy A13 is almost identical to the A13 5G, although Gorilla Glass 5 has the same 6.6″ screen protector as the Galaxy A23 PLS LCD, but at 60Hz, unlike the A13 5G and the A23 that supports 90Hz.

The Samsung Galaxy A13 camera setup is almost identical to that of the A23, except in the absence of OIS on the main camera and annoying 1080p video recording limitations that require the 8nm Exynos 850 chipset, both capable of recording 4K video.
All three phones have 5,000mAh batteries, but the A13 pair is limited to 15W and the Galaxy A23 to 25W, as we mentioned earlier. There is a slight difference between the parts. These are in the Samsung product line.
Before we get into the current review. Let’s take a look at the purchase package first. Sorry, there isn’t much to do here. Samsung has greatly reduced the accessory package. In fact, there are no accessories at all except the USB Type-C cable. We did a quick test and found it to be a simple passive cable with no electronic marker chip. On the other hand, it only needs 15W of charging and a rated charge. Transfer USB 2.0 (480Mbps)
This means that the charger has to be purchased separately. A proper PD box or an older Samsung adaptive fast charging adapter should work, as the A13 can’t draw more than 15W.
Although it’s a bit embarrassing that there are no fillers in the box. But it also takes into account the environment. in fact The less charger sent, the more The less likely they will be to end up in a landfill. Additionally, not all Galaxy A13 packaging is made of corrugated paper (cardboard) marked 21 PAP. It is made from recyclable cellulose fibers. and biodegradable (Biodegradable)
Samsung currently has a number of different “look skins” in its lineup. This particular design language is a camera island with a split camera and no island going back to the Galaxy A32, but now that the Galaxy S22 Ultra has taken what looks to the top of the enterprise offerings, the Samsung Galaxy A13 is getting its fashion score in a way. On the other hand, the Galaxy A23 sticks to the more traditional Galaxy A series island. by painting the same color as the rest of the back.
However, unlike the Galaxy A32, the A13 has a simpler body design. Instead of a three-piece construction, the A13 gets the one-piece plastic body that was popular a few years ago. It’s made of plastic, which makes it lightweight and won’t break or deform. However, it can scratch and break, and the material Samsung used on the A13 wasn’t the most durable either. It can detect annoying black dots and chips in frames during review without doing anything special.
Available in black, white, peach and blue, the Samsung Galaxy A13 looks fresh and “young” and could be very popular as the Galaxy A series is primarily aimed at a younger audience.
Our white Galaxy A13 looks great from a distance. But in the near term, it lost a lot of its charm. The texture looks quite cheap. And although the surface is shiny, it shows no dirt or grease. But it still accumulates and gets boring quickly.

The texture is also non-sticky, which makes the Samsung Galaxy A13 slippery and slightly less road maintenance. The shape is quite ergonomic. But a cover is required to install the controls.
That being said, the special plastic Galaxy A13 Unibody isn’t very durable and doesn’t feel very pleasant to the touch. There is also a noticeable bend in the packaging, with an air gap between the battery and the battery inside. The feeling of emptiness was never beautiful. Samsung Galaxy A13.
