    So I’ve been dealing with T-Mobile and Samsung trying to decide where the best place is to upgrade. T-Mobile only wants to give an $80 trade in price but they have a promo of up to $600 so I would get credited monthly for the other $520. So still talking $600 out-of-pocket along with another $75 or so in taxes and their stupid $35 upgrade/expert fee or whatever it is. So basically $710 if I trade in my note 9. I went to T-Mobile stores today and one of them was totally clueless and told me the promotion ended yesterday. I had spent about four hours on the chat with two different reps yesterday. I went to a second T-Mobile store today and they found the deal I was referencing. But they did not have the S 22 ultra in green. Trying to decide if I really want the ultra or the S 22+ as I like the looks of it better with the rounded corners and I seldom use my stylus. But am I going to have regrets? Has anyone had both the S 22+ and the S 22 ultra? Pluses and minuses? Thanks

    I would go with the Ultra. But I'm telling you... Buy it from Samsung. You'll get much less headache. I bought my last carrier phone years ago.

    I just got done ordering with T-Mobile online. I got a better deal than with Samsung. Ordered the S22 ultra for me and S22+ for hubby. Still very pricey for sure. I love my note 9 but concerned with there have been very few security updates.

    Awesome. I must be going backwards because I just recently ordered a used, mint condition Note 9.

    I know its also gonna be out of updates soon, but I dont care honestly as I dont do anything risky.

    How much did you get it (Ultra) for if you dont mind me asking? Did you have to change your plan at all?

    The ultra was $1200 but T-Mobile had a promotion where you got up to $600 in trade-in and credit. Only got a credit of $80 for my trade-in but the other $520 will be spaced out over 24 months in credits. By using the app I only had to pay the $75 tax and didn’t have to pay the $35 extra fee they have. So in the end it cost $600 plus $75 tax after I trade in my note 9.

    T-Mobile is tricky as they usually want you to upgrade to another plan which I did not want to do or add another line which I did not want to do as we already have four lines on one military where we pay $100 total.

    Unfortunately only the 128 GB model. We were updating three phones so still pricey pricey pricey. I got the ultra and I’m paying about $675 after my trade-in, my husband got the plus and his is about $465 after his trade-in of the S9 plus, and my son got just the S 22 trading in his s9 his is about $250. They take your trade in amount subtracted from the $600 promotion they have and spread the rest over 24 months. That’s so they can say they don’t have contracts lol

    I know Samsung was doing double storage but it was going to cost me another $165. I’m hoping the 128 GB is OK that’s what I have on my note 9 and I still have 40 GB available and I take lots of pictures.

    Edit to add… I just checked my note 9 and I have used 76.7 GB out of 128 GB. I know newer phones and technology probably use up more just start with but I think I should probably be fine though I would’ve loved to of had the 256 (has 12 ram instead of 8) I just couldn’t justify the cost. Because then of course I still had to purchase cases and screen protectors. Could not find any decent glass screen protectors. The ones that say they have tons of reviews are actually linked to other products on Amazon. So you have to go through and read things thoroughly.

    I had the 8/128 Bronze S22 Ultra for a couple of weeks and I couldn't tell any difference in performance between it and 12/512 models I currently have. It's still a beast. I think where you may notice a difference is down the line in a couple of years as we move to Android 14/15/16.

    The biggest downside for me is lack of sd card support. The note 10+ really had it nailed in that aspect of having 12gb of RAM, 256gb of on board storage and then sd card support on top of that.

    In a device that has 8gb/128gb of internal storage, if it had sd card support, it wouldn't be a big deal. For me, that 128gb of internal storage without sd card would be full in about a month.

    Enjoy the device though. I think if I was going to purchase one, I would go with the 256gb personally.

    A bronze ultra? Didn’t see that on the T-Mobile website must’ve been an exclusive color somewhere. I wish there was a purple one but there wasn’t just burgundy, black, and green and I think a lighter color. I went with the green.. yeah I hope I’m not disappointed I’m not getting the 256 GB model. But my iPads also almost 4 years old I don’t want to give my husband a total reason to be mad if I upgrade that sometime soon as well.

    I don’t mind not having an SD slot. Like I mentioned above I have the note 9 that I’ve had since it first came out. 128 GB and I’ve only used 77 GB and I have lots and lots of pictures on my phone. I don’t take many videos but I do have a few.
