If you are considering buying the Galaxy A55, you might be analyzing how this new Samsung offering compares to some of the popular competing phones.

We have already shared our analyses comparing the A55 vs Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus and the A55 vs Redmi Note 13 Pro. Now, we will examine the main differences between the Samsung Galaxy A55 and the Redmi Note 15 5G to determine which one is better suited to your needs.


We start this comparison between the Galaxy A55 and the Redmi Note 13 5G by examining the screen features and the most prominent design points.

The Samsung Galaxy A55 inherited many premium features. Of course, design is one of them, featuring a mix of details that convey the feel of a high-end mobile.

For instance, this model has a glass back, aluminum sides, and the “Key Island”—a small edge in the button area that integrates seamlessly with the design. If you’re upgrading from the Samsung Galaxy A54, you’ll notice it’s a bit heavier, but it remains a comfortable phone to hold.

As for the display, the A55 boasts a 6.6-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a maximum brightness of 1000 nits.

Moving to the Redmi Note 13 5G, it features ultra-thin bezels that give it an elegant and compact style, as seen in the image above. It is significantly lighter than the Galaxy A55 and feels very good to the touch.

Regarding the screen, it shares several characteristics with the A55, including a 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate and 1000 nits of brightness.


 The Samsung Galaxy A55 debuts with the Samsung Exynos 1480 processor, manufactured using a 4nm process with 6 cores at 2.75 GHz and 6 cores at 2 GHz, and is configured with 8GB of RAM with either 128 or 256 GB of internal storage.

Of course, the processor is superior to previous generations, with significant improvements in performance and power. Other notable features include stereo speakers, NFC, and IP67 protection against dust and water. Don’t expect a headphone jack on this model from the A series, as Samsung has long removed this feature.

On the other hand, the Redmi Note 13 5G is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 6080 processor built on a 6 nm process with 8 cores up to 2.4 GHz, available in two versions: 6 GB + 128 GB, and 8 GB + 256 GB of RAM and internal storage.

This configuration will not cause you problems even when you test it with high-demand graphic games. This model does include a headphone jack, though it lacks dual stereo speakers and only offers IP54 protection.


One of the points you might be interested in this comparison between the Redmi Note 13 5G and the Galaxy A55 is the battery life each model can offer.

The good news is that both feature a 5000 mAh battery, which is more than enough to provide over a day’s worth of autonomy without issues. Of course, this will depend on the settings you’ve configured on the mobile and your usage habits.

As for fast charging, the Samsung Galaxy A55 continues with the 25W of previous generations, while the Redmi Note 13 5G offers 33W fast charging (charger included).


Moving to the photographic section, the Samsung Galaxy A55 features a primary sensor of 50 megapixels with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and an aperture of f/1.8, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with f/2.2, and a 5-megapixel macro lens with f/2.4. Regarding the front camera, it includes a 32-megapixel sensor with f/2.2.

The Redmi Note 13 5G also features a triple camera setup, but with a different configuration. It has a main sensor of 108 megapixels with an f/1.7 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.2, and a 2-megapixel macro lens with f/2.4. The front camera sensor is 16 megapixels with f/2.4.

It has been observed that with this model, you can achieve good photographs without too much fuss, although in low-light or night shots you may need to utilize camera functions to achieve better results.


Both the Samsung Galaxy A55 and the Redmi Note 13 5G offer interesting propositions, as they combine premium features to cover almost all aspects.

They boast excellent screens, large batteries, comprehensive photographic capabilities, and solid processing power. Of course, there are differences.

Samsung’s Exynos 1480 promises power and performance aligned with a mostly premium proposal in most of its aspects. Additionally, it includes some features that might not go unnoticed, which are not present in the Redmi, such as IP67 protection and stereo audio.

The photographic capabilities of the Redmi Note 13 5G with its 108-megapixel main sensor have proven to work well in most scenarios, and it remains to be seen how the Galaxy A55’s camera proposal responds.

However, the price may be the decisive factor for your decision. The Redmi Note 13 5G is priced at 250 euros for the 6GB + 128GB version, while the Samsung Galaxy A55 is around 480 euros. This significant price difference might lead you to opt for the Redmi or look for similar alternatives in mobiles that do not exceed 300 euros.
