Redmi Note 13 vs Tecno Spark 20 Pro - Design Aspect

Design is primarily subjective, and what Mr. A likes might differ from what MR. B likes. They are both made of plastic, and the Spark 20 has a matte plastic finish, while we have a glossy finish on the Redmi Note 13, which is prone to fingerprint stains. They both have a case in the box, but I prefer the textured plastic case with which the Redmi phone comes. You get a silicone TPU case in the box of the Spark 20 Pro. They both have three cameras at the back, and the arrangement on the Spark phone looks like the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The look of the Redmi Note 13 is a bit different, and I prefer how it looks. They both charge through a USB C port, and they have dual speakers. You get an IR blaster on the Redmi Note 13, and it’s not present on the Spark 20 Pro. The Spark 20 Pro supports dual 4G sim cards with a slot for memory cards on the sim card tray. The Redmi Note 13, on the other hand, has a hybrid sim card slot that supports two 4G sim cards or a sim card and an SD card. The frames of both phones are made of plastic, and we have the fingerprint scanner of the Spark 20 Pro on the right side of the frame. It also doubles as the unlock key. The Redmi Note 13 has an under-display fingerprint scanner, and it’s more reliable, at least for me. In terms of design, I prefer the Redmi Note 13 over the Spark 20 Pro, even though it is a fingerprint magnet. They both have an IP Rating against dust and water splash. None of them is water resistant.

Redmi Note 13 vs Tecno Spark 20 Pro - Display Aspect

They both have a punch hole cut out, which might be their only similarity. The Tecno Spark 20 Pro has a larger 6.7-inch IPS LCD, while we have a 6.6-inch AMOLED display on the Redmi Note 13. They both have a 1080p resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. While the Spark 20 Pro display might be decent, It can’t be compared to the AMOLED display on the Redmi Note 13. It is brighter outdoors, more color-accurate, and warmer in the eye. The Redmi Note 13 also has a more even bezel around the display. The chin on the display of the Spark 20 Pro is a bit more noticeable. You might enjoy gaming more on the display of the Spark 20 Pro if you love big screens. Streaming content, however, is more pleasing on the Redmi because of the colors you will get. We have Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the Redmi phone, while Tecno didn’t specify the type of glass protection on the Spark 20 Pro. In terms of display, the Redmi Note 13 is better.

Software and Performance Aspect

Both phones are running on Android 13, and MIUI 14 is the user interface on the Redmi Note 13, and HiOS is the interface on the Tecno Spark 20 Pro. Let’s say in terms of software, the Redmi Note 13 is better because there are a lot of features and customization. In the settings of the phone there are many things to have fun with it even has a fingerprint scanner that reads your heart rate I doubt if it is accurate though. The HiOS is also feature-packed but not as packed as what we have on the Redmi. You are also guaranteed at least one software update on the Redmi Note 13, but the same can’t be said about the Tecno Spark 20 Pro. There is also the new HyperOS from Xiaomi, and I am sure it will be available on the Redmi Note 13 soon. Regarding software, there is no argument that the Redmi Note 13 is ahead.

What about Performance? The MediaTek Helio G99 powers the Tecno Spark 20 Pro, while we have the Snapdragon 685 powering the Redmi Note 13. The Tecno Spark 20 Pro has a slight edge over the Redmi Note 13 in this aspect. The base model of the Spark 20 Pro comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB Storage space, while we have a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model for the Redmi Note 13. You can also buy another one with 8GB RAM and 128 GB or 256GB of storage space. You can easily play demanding games on the phone like PubG and COD Mobile. The performance is similar to the phones, but certain aspects are better on the Tecno Spark 20 Pro.

Camera Comparison & Review

They both have a 108MP primary camera and on the Redmi, you get an additional 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro lens. On the Spark 20 Pro, you get an Auxiliary lens and a 2MP depth sensor. In terms of pictures, they are similar because they are using the same lens. The significant difference here is how they process pictures with their software. The Spark 20 Pro has a 32MP selfie camera, and we have 16MP on the Redmi Note 13, but the images from the selfie camera look better. You get 1080p on The Redmi Note 13 in terms of videos, while you can shoot 2K max on the Spark 20 Pro. This aspect is most certainly a tie.

Battery Aspect Comparison

Both phones have a 5000mAh battery, and you also get a 33-watt fast charging brick in the box of both phones. The Snapdragon 685 is a bit more efficient in managing battery, but it is just by a little margin. Charging both phones takes slightly over one hour from zero to a hundred. The Redmi Note 13 has a slight lead but is not significant. You will get a complete day of battery life on both phones no matter how you use them.

Rounding Up

The Redmi Note 13 looks like the better phone, and it's ahead in most aspects, but that doesn't mean the Tecno Spark 20 Pro isn’t good. You can go with any of them, and the performance will be great unless you have specific features you look up to, and one has it better than the other. That’s it for this one, and you can ask any questions if you have one.
