Hi @Richardjones749 There again you can only get Refresh contracts if bought directly from O2. Thats a deal breaker for many people

CPW also use the commission they get from networks to discount their tariffs, but the bottom line is that the prices are clearly shown and it's entirely the customers choice where to buy from.
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone7 (EE)

Yes, O2 may be pricier but they are offering Refresh contracts as well which, as @Cleoriff states, is a deal breaker for many.
And as @MI5 also says prices are clearly shown and we all have a choice who we buy from.

An old post but I thought it worth clarifying. Samsung do make an S9 Plus 64GB model and it's the one I was interested in buying. Alas O2 don't offer it. They prefer to offer the 128GB model.
However the 128GB model is more expensive on contract than buying the phone outright and purchasing a separate SIM. This isn't necessarily the case with the S9.
In fact I think the S9 Plus 128GB model is more expensive on some contracts than the Note 9 on contract! Purchased outright the Note 9 is more expensive.
Some other mobile phone providers, such as EE and Vodafone but not all, do offer the S9 Plus 64GB model. However I personally don't wish to move away from O2. However nor do I wish to buy the phone outright in one go. Thus I'm looking at the Note 9 as it's better value on contract, whilst still having a better camera than the S9.
