The iPhone 13 Pro offers a better camera system with an additional telephoto lens, higher camera quality ratings, and a slightly faster refresh rate which can make the screen feel smoother, especially during activities like scrolling or gaming. However, it does come at a premium price compared to the iPhone 13. If camera capabilities and screen refresh rate are top priorities and budget is less of a concern, the iPhone 13 Pro is a great choice. For those more price-sensitive and who still want a high-quality camera and display, albeit with less advanced features, the iPhone 13 is a very capable option. Both phones share the same screen size, have powerful processors, and offer long battery life, ensuring either choice provides a reliable and high-performance user experience. Give Feedback

TechRadar

James Peckham | September 2022
"The iPhone 13 isn’t a game changer for Apple’s series of smartphones, but it’s an important iteration that offers better battery life, a better processor and an upgraded camera setup than iPhones that have gone before it. If you’re looking for a fast and capable smartphone, and don’t need the extra features of the pricier Pro model, this is a top choice."

Android Authority

Dhruv Bhutani | October 2021
"The basic foundation of the phone is rock solid and essentials like UI navigation, apps, security, and privacy features are polished to a sheen. The camera works consistently well and takes some of the best pictures you can get out of a phone. The phone further embellishes it with performance that won’t have you reaching for a replacement for years, and the battery life is hands-down amongst the best you can get on a flagship. If you’ve been eyeing an iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro is as good as it gets."
