Xiaomi 13T: A Smartphone That Lasts and Charges Swiftly

The Xiaomi 13T has taken the market by storm, surprising everyone just when the spotlight was on its older sibling, the 13T Pro, with its impressive specifications. However, it’s the Xiaomi 13T that’s making waves, especially with its Black Friday discounts.

For those unfamiliar with its specifications, let’s focus on what makes this smartphone a standout when it comes to battery performance:

  • Battery Capacity: 5000 mAh
  • Charger: 67W charger (included in the box)
  • Display: 6.73-inch OLED screen with 1080 x 2400 resolution and a silky-smooth 144 Hz refresh rate
  • Processor: MediaTek Dimensity 8200 Ultra 4nm processor

DxOMark Analysis

DxOMark, renowned for its mobile camera reviews, is also an expert in evaluating other aspects of smartphones, including batteries.

In the case of the Xiaomi 13T, DxOMark notes:

“The Xiaomi 13T showed above-average autonomy performance, lasting more than two days with moderate daily use. Autonomy during outdoor navigation, video playback, and indoor gaming was also impressive. However, the device’s performance in voice call scenarios, both indoors and outdoors, was less optimal.”

In simpler terms, this smartphone can easily go through a day without needing a recharge, meeting the demands of users who expect their phones to last.

Charging Speed

Not only does the Xiaomi 13T excel in battery life, but its fast charging capabilities are also impressive, despite being almost half the speed of its pricier sibling.

Equipped with a 67W charger, the Xiaomi 13T achieves a full charge in just around 52 minutes. The device also boasts a relatively accurate battery indicator, with the UI displaying more than 97% of the total capacity, positioning it at the top of DxOMark’s database.

Although the charger is powerful, the results of the rapid charging test were slightly below average. After a 5-minute charge at 60% power, it gained only 4 hours and 30 minutes of autonomy. Nevertheless, with just 5 minutes of charging, you can gain over 5 hours of usage.

In summary, while the Xiaomi 13T might lack some extravagant features, such as ultra-rapid charging or three-day battery life, it strikes a well-balanced performance in various battery tests.

Considering that the smartphone is priced at approximately 490 euros during Black Friday, you’ll be hard-pressed to find many smartphones offering a better battery experience than the Xiaomi 13T.
