This phone is the best so far. Traded my Galaxy S21 in for an iPhone 13 and honestly, that was the best trade-in value I ever got. I could listen in some music, watching entertainments (while also on 5G) like YouTube, Netflix, Paramount+, & Disney+, I could also reach out to my family, friends, even my grands on my every day’s life, I play games like mobile games & cloud gaming (e.g. XCloud, PlayStation, Stadia, Luna, & Apple Arcade, also the camera is really good, capturing the Grand Canyon at Arizona with the amazing Ultra-Wide and even taking videos at 4K 60FPS HDR, plus so many more. I would rather say that the iPhone 13 is one my favorite beast phone of all times.
I always went for the pros or the max phones but this time around I wanted to get something handy and decent. Love the size of this phone and performance is on par with what I expected. Coming from the 12 pro max, I do miss the 3rd camera but the picture quality in general is way better now. Photographic styles are amazing
Bought this phone for my mom. She really liked it. Great features. Great camera. Great battery life. And it's also very handy. Overall it's a great phone. It's probably one of the best iPhone out there.

Opinions so far:
This iPhone 13 seems very similar to the iPhone 12. After using it for a few days, I can't say that there is anything dramatically different about this version compared to the iPhone 12. It feels slightly heavier, the screen is a bit brighter, the cameras seem to do a slightly better job in low light situations (sometimes), and it can shoot Cinematic Video, although I've had mixed results with that feature. The new chip should be faster, and the bigger battery should last slightly longer; but I haven't really noticed much of a difference in either of those categories with my daily use so far.
I can't really see a compelling reason to upgrade from the iPhone 12 at the moment. If you are looking for a more noticeable upgrade, you might want to check out the Pro versions, as the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max have 120 Hz refresh rate screens that really stand out to me; and combined with the better cameras and extra GPU in the Pros, those might be worth the extra cost to you.
I recently upgraded to the iPhone 13 from my 2 year old iPhone 11. While there was nothing wrong with my iPhone 11 (I ended up giving it to a family member to replace their old 1st gen iPhone SE) I really wanted to take advantage of the $100 sale on the iPhone 13 from T-Mobile. This is my first iPhone with 5G and an OLED display and it has not disappointed me yet. It's also slightly lighter than my iPhone 11 and feel slightly narrower (The flat sides defiantly help the phone feel more "svelte" in the hand).
I had considered getting the 13 Mini, but I really couldn't see myself switching from the 11 which has a 6.1 inch display (just like the 13), to the 13 Mini, which has a 5.4 inch display and the same battery life as the 11 (the 13 gets around 2 hours more battery life than both the 11 and 13 Mini). If you're considering an iPhone and don't need the "pro" series then the iPhone 13 is the way to go!

Apple iPhone 13 review: Delivering the upgrades that matterAt the outset, the iPhone 13 doesn't look any different to its predecessor. But it has a ton of under-the-hood changes that allow it to take better photos and deliver much better battery life. If you're using an older iPhone and want to upgrade,
iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 13 Pro: Which should you buy in 2022?If you're looking to buy a new iPhone in 2022, you have multiple options from which to choose. As has become the norm, the lineup is split into the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro. On the surface, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are very similar
A:AnswerYes, in essence, they transfer your old phone's SIM card to this new iPhone. Then, you can keep your same plan without adding a line. You can also see if Best Buy offers you a trade-in value for your old phone to save some money.
Be advised, though. If your previous phone had a LTE SIM card, there could be a cost to upgrade that SIM card to 5G which is needed for this new iPhone.
