New flagship Xiaomi 13 Pro it aims at the highest ranks among smartphones. Its main competitor is iPhone 14 Pro a Galaxy s23 ultra. And it is with this pair of devices that we will compare photographic results or video recordings in today's article. Will the Chinese giant succeed with its new product?
Xiaomi 13 Pro: Video recording
The testing of the trio of phones was carried out by the popular YouTube channel TechTablets. And it was he who started his comparison by recording a video recording.
After a few minutes of recording 4K video (30 / 60 fps), he concluded that in this category, at least when it comes to recording a standard video track without zooming, the best quality recording is still offered by the Apple iPhone 14 Pro. The iPhone also wins outright when recording video with the front camera.
Apple smartphones have dominated this category for several years, and the Android competition still has a lot to learn. On the other hand, when it comes to zooming in video, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra dominates this task, thanks to its up to 10x optical zoom. This smartphone also dominated night recording. You can watch the whole video at the link above.
Photos in daylight
When it comes to daylight, in these conditions the differences between the flagship smartphones really shrink. Xiaomi brings software improvements from Leica, but overexposed photos can be noticed on some compositions. If we look at the color saturation, the photo from Samsung leads here. The iPhone offers a more realistic color spectrum, and the Xiaomi has a color profile tuned more to the cold.
Indoor photography has excellent quality and sufficient sharpness in all three cases, and the warmest colors presented by the Xiaomi 13 Pro. TechTablets praises the color range and passes on the value of the image from the front camera.
This camera has the clearest image in the case of Xiaomi 13 Pro. It depends on whether this result suits you subjectively. The iPhone 14 Pro follows with lighting and brightening the face, and the Galaxy S23 Ultra offers the least light.
Xiaomi wins in outdoor color accuracy and has the most optimal display without excessive software effects, unlike the iPhone 14 Pro, which did not handle the photo with a blooming flower very well. Close-up photography has the upper hand with the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Leica enhancements and night mode for photography
Not even Xiaomi will be embarrassed, offering optimal colors when zoomed in thanks to Leica improvements. Portrait mode with a usable result is mainly offered by the Samsung smartphone, the other pair of devices has a problem with the edges and delineation of the object.
The iPhone 14 Pro offers the best HDR range of this trio. However, the clearest photo does not always mean the best photo. It depends on your specific composition.
If we look at ultra-wide-angle photography, the three devices offer very similar results. The Chinese Xiaomi did the best with the color of the sky, but with ultra-wide-angle photography, you have to be careful about possible distortion in the corners.
Night mode is offered by each of the three camera applications. What are the results? The Xiaomi 13 Pro will offer the most light, which is also reflected in the resulting sharpness of the images. On the other hand, for night photography, avoid ultra-wide-angle shots. Regardless of the manufacturer.

From what I understood in that video, Apple only won when using the selfie camera. When shooting with the main camera (as well as the zoom) it was already Samsung.
