While not a huge change from the iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max series, the iPhone 13 Pro has met our expectations on what a modern flagship smartphone from Apple should be.
The 120hz display is extraordinarily nice, clear, smooth and makes the prior 60hz screens feel extremely dated.
The battery life is stronger. Time will tell how much better it really ends up being, but so far it meets expectations.
The cameras are amazing. While not a huge upgrade from the previous gen for most users, the new cameras do work very well. The improved optical and digital zoom is wonderful and the night mode photography is much improved.
After having used it for one full day, I feel that I can say that this is what the 12 Pro series should have been. It has the 120hz screen that rivals the Samsung S21 series and other flagship smartphones. It has a truly stellar camera array with wonderful features that do, in fact, work far better than the iPhone 12 Pro series. It seems to have the battery life the 12 Pro should have had. It has the smaller notch that the entire 12 series should have had. I have no serious complaints thus far, aside from the fact that this should have been called the 12S rather than the 13. It’s not a drastic redesign. It’s not a revolutionary device. However, it is exactly what we wanted the 12 Pro to be in the first place. If you have an iPhone 12 or 12 Pro/Max, this is not a significant enough upgrade, in my opinion. If you have an iPhone 11 Pro/Max, this is a minor upgrade in most ways. If you have an iPhone X, XS/Max, Xr, or iPhone 11, this is a huge upgrade. If you’re clinging to anything older than the aforementioned phones, what are you waiting for? This is what you’ve been waiting for. This checks almost all of the boxes.
Attached, you will find a picture of my new iPhone 13 Pro in it’s box, the moment I opened it.
Much better than my XS but I was a bit disappointed with the occasionally glitchy camera software and the over hyped battery life. With 40% brightness and with only a few background notifications, I am only getting just north of 8 hours screen on time. I use the MagSafe charger and have the charging optimized so I’m not I sure why there is such a difference between the critics analysis and actual usage results.
The Camera camera quality is significantly more clear. Could be a good or bad thing tentative on what you use it. They both pick up every pore on my dang face. The camera setting are pretty cool.
The battery life is way better. I can use my phone 70% of the day and still have 3/4 battery life…
My iphone 11 pro that i upgraded from isn’t as fast, battery life doesn’t compare, camera quality is decent but the 13 Pro has much better quality.
My one complaint is the rear facing camera. Not the quality but the fact that i feel it’s not protected because it protrudes probably 2mm past my phone case… they make camera protectors but it knocks the camera quality down. If there’s a piece of dust on one of the lenses, sun light will refract and you’ll see in in your picture… Do what you want with that.
Upgraded from an iPhone XR. The old phone still works fine, but I wanted a better camera to use at my sons’ sport events and just to take better photos. The zoom is way better than the X-RAY and does not pixilate so much when zooming. I can also tell that it takes better photos in low light.
The screen is also an upgrade. Colors are more vibrant and clearer. The screen also looks larger, but that is because the bezels are smaller. The 5G is fast, but I hardly use it. Cells phone service gets spotty in areas where there’s lots of development plus, LYE always seems fast enough for me anyway. The battery lasts all day long when on LTE.
No real downsides. Glad I made the purchase.
My iPhone8 was so perfect for me, I had decided why replace it, no need to keep updating. However, on vacation out of state, the LifeProof case had gotten all scratched up from putting seashells in my pocket where the phone was. I attempted to replace the LifeProof case, though learned I needed to upgrade the phone. So gladly purchased this phone, and am beyond pleased with it! My goal is now, to just keep this phone forever, especially knowing that the new case will preserve it should there be any mishap in the future. I already recommended it to a close friend who also has an iPhone8. She's very interested in this phone, and presumably will upgrade hers sooner rather than later~!
The iPhone 13 Pro is a solid phone which offers additional battery life this year. I chose the white option because I was looking for a different color and was not feeling the lighter blue color. I would not choose white again. If you use your phone without a case it will be a major fingerprint magnet on the banding with the stainless steel they use. Most people obviously use a case, but just beware the fingerprints if you don't. They did not show up as bad on other models - like the space gray or now "midnight" color option. Overall the phone is solid and a great upgrade for anyone who has waited a few years.
