Xiaomi 13 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro vs Galaxy S23 Ultra: Camera Comparison
Release cycles for flagship smartphones are becoming increasingly more rapid, with companies like Samsung and Xiaomi leading the way in terms of frequency. This year has seen the release of the Xiaomi 13 Pro, a phone that was released just six months after the previous iteration.
The camera is one of the most heavily updated features on the 13 Pro, with Xiaomi putting in a lot of effort to make it a worthy competitor to the likes of the iPhone 14 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
The biggest change is the inclusion of a periscope telephoto lens, which allows for 5x optical zoom and 10x hybrid zoom. The results are impressive, with the 13 Pro managing to produce some clear and detailed photos even when zooming in on distant subjects.
However, there are some issues with the camera that mean it doesn’t quite live up to its promise. Colors can sometimes appear oversaturated, and there is a noticeable amount of camera shake when using the telephoto lens.
Overall, the Xiaomi 13 Pro is a very impressive phone, but it falls short of being a true flagship killer.
