You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to budget smartphones. But aside from Motorola and Nokia, you might be hard-pushed to find many options from brands you’ve heard of. This isn’t to say it’s a bad idea to buy one of the many Chinese Android phones – some offer amazing value.
But with Samsung’s A-series, you’d be forgiven for sticking with what you know.
Where to buy the Samsung Galaxy A13
Before you spend time hunting for the A13, it’s worth bearing in mind that it wasn’t a great phone when it launched. It should have been, but Samsung opted to fit it with an under-powered processor that made it feel slow in use, as you can read about in our review.
We’d recommend picking something from our list of the best budget phones instead, as you’ll end up getting better value.
The other thing to watch out for is that the A13 came in 4G and 5G versions, so if you’re determined to buy one, check which model is being sold before committing. The 5G model was mainly sold in the US.
Below, you’ll see any retailers selling the 4G model. If you see nothing, our system hasn’t found it on sale anywhere.
In the US, you can buy a Galaxy A13 5G from Samsung’s website where you can choose an unlocked model, or buy one from T-Mobile, AT&T, or US Cellular. It’s the same price from all: $174.99.
We can’t see the 5G variant listed at Samsung, but you can find the 4G version instead with prices starting at £129 (at time of writing). See the full list of all Galaxy A phones over at Samsung.
No other retailers were listing the phone for sale, but we’ll add more when that situation changes.
Samsung’s not the only option of course. You can compare prices from key retailers in your region using our comparison tool below:
