The Redmi Note line’s appeal has always been its ability to offer great specs at an affordable price. This year’s line includes the Redmi Note 13, the Note 13 5G, the Note 13 Pro, the Note 13 Pro 5G, and the Note 13 Pro+ 5G.

We reviewed the lattermost, where we found that while the other models hold true to their affordability appeal, the top-of-the-line variant is having a slight identity crisis either as a budget-friendly release or a premium midranger.
