    Just ordered my S9 and S9+ in the UK. I'm on the Samsung upgrade programme. The S9+ seems to be only offered with 128gb of storage in the UK where I have seen 64gb versions reviewed in the US. The extra storage is a nice extra and differentiator between the s9 and s9+.

    Wonder why Samsung has done this in the UK and not the US?

    The other markets should offer a 128gb version as option. My guess is demand would be higher than they would expect.

    Case in point, I would buy one.

    Hi mate. Total unrelated question, so sorry for highjacking.

    Interested in how the upgrade program worked. I presume you had the S8? Have you been offered a pre order ? Did you pre order the S8? Was it exactly a year? When do you send the S8 back?

    I'm on the Note annual upgrade and curious about the timing.
    Cheers, bosshogg

    Hi, I'm also in the UK, on the Samsung upgrade program. I got an email last night from Samsung offering me an early upgrade from my S8. I am not due to upgrade until May. I have ordered the S9+ because it has 128gb storage built in. I will send back my S8 once I get the S9+ and transferred all my stuff. I'm taking next week Friday off to take delivery of this gorgeous Lilac beauty.

    Cool. Thanks.
    Good choice on the plus. Looks great.
    I presume it starts another 2 year deal with the CloseBros?
    Is the monthly cost slightly more with the higher RRP?

    Thanks,

    Yes it does start another 2 year deal but seeing as I get bored quickly and have never had a phone for 2 years, I'll be doing the same thing again lol! The phone is interest free and the same price as buying it outright from any other shop. I miss selling on my phone but seeing as selling on ebay was working out expensive and there are some people on ebay who tray to pull a fast one, I'm happy with this deal.

    Yeah, I was the same. Buying and selling flagships every few months. Worked out fine but a pia with eBay etc.
    Sold my S8 and entered the Note upgrade program to try and stop buying more than one phone a year.

    I have a s8 and s8+. Both the s9 and s9+ are pre order and I should get them both on Thursday next week. Samsung sent me an email yesterday offering the upgrade.

    Can't remember if it has been exactly a year. Suppose it depends on when Samsung releases new models.

    If memory serves I get the new phones first then send the old ones back so I'm not without a phone.
