Review iPhone 13: Apple’s ‘entry-level model’

Last year Apple presented four iPhones in the 12 series at the same time and this year we are so spoiled. In the near future we will take a close look at each of those devices in a separate review. So keep an eye on iPhoned for our experiences with the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and of course iPhone 13 Pro Max.

In this iPhone 13 review, however, we focus on the manufacturer’s standard model. The starting price has remained the same as with the iPhone 12, but you do get more memory for that price. That means that you can purchase the new iPhone 13 from 909 euros (128GB). Need more storage? Then you pay respectively 1029 euros (256GB) or 1259 euros (512GB).

Design: distinctive straight edges

As expected, we don’t see too big changes in design compared to the iPhone 12. With that series, Apple opted for a completely new appearance and we only expect that with the next generation, the iPhone 14. That also means that the iPhone 13 has straight sides, which really gives the device its own face.

The angular edges ensure that the iPhone is somewhat sharp in the hand, making the smartphone less comfortable to hold. The black edges around the screen are the same width everywhere and that symmetry adorns Apple. However, in my opinion they are a fraction too broad and therefore too present.
