I particulary like the internal memory of 128gb. Which is not the 32gb suspected. As the S8/S8+ and the Note 8 have internal memories of 64gb why would Samsung reduce rather than increase the internal memory in a new phone, or if not increase then maintain 64gb.
I also like the twin speakers as I play music a lot on my phone.

What you have to decide, as a long-term O2 customer, is can I get a better deal elsewhere and, most important of all, will I have the same coverage as I do with O2. If the answer is yes to both then you leave O2. If you can get a better deal but coverage is not as good, then you stay with O2.

There aren't even any freebies, ie earphones or Gear Vr or the sort of stuff they'd have included in the past. As for the 50% off a £70 wireless charger that was previously £39.99 and can be had for under £30 elsewhere, nice try O2!

I was very surprised to see no promotions.....

For the last two months O2 have been pestering me to upgrade early, even offering to pay off the remainder of my handset balance which was £60 at the time but I was waiting for the release of this so couldn't take their offer. I have £30 remaining which will be paid off tomorrow so I asked them what deals they can do me.
The tariff I was looking at was £52.00 a month and £70 upfront.
O2: "Sorry, it's a new handset, we can't offer any discounts"
Me: "You were offering to pay off £60 for my current handset if I upgraded back in Jan, can't you knock that off the up front cost?"
O2: "Sorry, we can't offer any discounts on a new handset"
Me: "I can login now and it's offering me an early upgrade and you'll pay off the £30 that's remaining, so clearly you can offer discounts. I can't take that one up though because my Direct Debit is due out tomorrow"
O2: "sorry, we can't offer any discounts"
Me: "fine, I'll shop around elsewhere"

If the S9 had been available to pre-order 2 months ago I could have taken their offer to pay off the remaining £60 on my current handset and taken the S9 as the upgrade. I was able to do that up until a few days ago when there was only £30 remaining.
Now I've paid off the balance of my existing handset, them knocking £60 off the upfront handset cost would have been exactly the same as them paying off the £60 remaining on my S7.
