How Big Tech firms are rushing to train AI
The Xiaomi-Leica partnership in imaging does not end with just two photographic styles; there are new filters, watermarks, and shutter sound. Besides, there is a master-lens system in the portrait mode. There are four Leica-tuned filters – vivid, natural, black & white natural, and black & white high contrast. Simple to use, these filters add zing to the images and open options for the users to explore and ulasan film experiment.
Likewise, the master-lens system in the portrait mode lets users go beyond generic without getting into the complexities of changing lenses. The system has four options – Black & White (35mm), Swirly Bokeh (50mm), Portrait (75mm), and Soft Focus (90mm). Each of these deliver a novel experience, unmatched by any other smartphone – especially in terms of portrait experience.
From ultra-wide-angle to close-ups, half-body portraits, and zoomed shots, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has a versatile camera system that impresses on all fronts, irrespective of lighting conditions.
The Leica partnership is limited to photography, but videos are not after thought either. The Xiaomi 13 Pro is the first smartphone in the Android space to support 4K 30fps video recording in Dolby Vision format. The video quality is good, but can be improved.
For a camera-centric premium smartphone, the Xiaomi 13 Pro delivers on core competencies with clear focus on making everyday photography experience easy and fun. On other parameters, it is as good.
The Xiaomi 13 Pro has a bright and responsive 6.73-inch 10-bit AMOLED screen (1440p) of 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. It is a two-side curved screen with support for commonly used high dynamic range formats – Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR, and HLG. The dazzling screen is complemented by stereo speakers powered by Dolby Atmos. The speakers are loud and clear, but lack balance. Nevertheless, if not better, the experience is on-par with other smartphones in the premium segment.
Performance is top-notch and consistent, but the phone tends to warm up after extended usage. Though a camera-focused smartphone, the Xiaomi 13 Pro does not disappoint with gaming and multimedia experience. It is, however, a bit heavy and bulky and that came in way as a hindrance to the otherwise stellar experience. Speaking of experience, the Xiaomi 13 Pro boots Android 13 operating system-based MIUI 14 interface. It is a brand new interface with new widgets, wallpapers, and tools for customisation. There are efforts visible in the UI with regard to bloatware, but these remain. The bloatware, therefore, is less of an issue here but the subtle third-party ads placement in system apps is a sign of worry because these hamper the experience that one expects from a premium smartphone.
