Samsung Galaxy A13 Vs. iPhone 12 Pro: Which to Choose

The Samsung Galaxy A13 has been out for almost a year now, but it remains a hot topic. I still remember last year when this phone was released in March; there was so much hype around it because not only it had some of the greatest features that Samsung had to offer, but it also came at a very reasonable and budget-friendly price point.

However, the main question of this topic is still whether it’s good enough to compare with the likes of a used iPhone 12 Pro. Everyone knows about the long feud between Apple and Samsung. Every time one company releases a new flagship phone, the other also releases its competitor, even though both of them use a different operating system.

So, in this article, I’ll go over both of the smartphones and recommend the one which I see as the better option.

Samsung Galaxy A13 Specs  

When it first came out, I borrowed the phone from a friend to test it out, and when I did, I really liked the device. The Samsung Galaxy A13 is a mid-range smartphone featuring a 6.6-inches PLS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2408 pixels. It is powered by an octa-core Exynos 850 processor coupled with RAM ranging from 3GB to 6GB and internal storage ranging from 32GB to 128GB which can be further expanded with a microSD card.

With its quad rear camera setup consisting of a 50MP main camera sensor, the Galaxy A13 is ideal for taking photos and recording videos on the go. For selfies, the device has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera housed in the notch on the display, which can also be used for video calls.

Finally, the Galaxy A13 packs a sizeable 5000 mAh battery that supports fast charging of up to 15W via a USB Type-C port. It runs One UI 4.1 based on Android 12 and comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for security.

iPhone 12 Pro Spec

I would like to start off by saying that I’m currently using a used iPhone 12 Pro that I bought from Wise Market Pakistan. I have previous experience with an Apple device, but from what I can tell, it’s truly an amazing device. It comes with a 6.1-inches Super Retina XDR display that boasts a resolution of 1170 x 2532 pixels which is ideal for long movies or gaming sessions. It’s powered by the A14 Bionic chipset paired with 6GB RAM for seamless multitasking capabilities. The device runs on iOS 14 and is available in three storage models ranging from 128GB to 512 GB.

In terms of photography, it comes equipped with a triple rear camera setup with a 12MP primary camera with optical image stabilization and 4K video support and 12MP telephoto and ultra-wide angle lenses. On the front, it has a 12MP TrueDepth camera for selfies and Face ID authentication.

For security, as I said before, the iPhone 12 Pro comes with Face ID for facial recognition as well as an IP68 dust and water resistance rating that can withstand up to 6 meters of immersion for 30 minutes at maximum. The device is backed by a 2,815 mAh battery that supports 20W fast charging along with Qi wireless charging technology for convenient usage. 

Which One to Choose

Even though the iPhone 12 Pro has much better performance than the Samsung Galaxy A13 but I’ll still recommend the A13. You might be recommending why that is, and to answer that, I like to start with the price of the phone. No matter if you’re buying a used iPhone 12 Pro or a new one, the price-to-performance ratio for the Samsung Galaxy A13 is much better. It costs almost half of the price of an iPhone and gives reasonable performance. 

For this article, I used many iPhones, like a used iPhone 11 Pro and a used iPhone 12 Pro Max, but when it comes to price to performance, no one can beat Samsung Galaxy A13 in Pakistan. 

You can get all of these mobile phones and other accessories like smartwatches, earbuds, and other lifestyle products directly from Wise Market Pakistan. Speaking of which, I highly recommend that you check out Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 to get the best experience out of your Samsung phone. So, don’t overthink it and head over to Wise Market Pakistan to get the best prices for the best devices.
