These are the worst preorder trade-in deals ever. How dare Samsung try forcing us to sign contracts for 36 months with carriers to get the best deals. Gen Mill and Gen Z hate contracts. People need to boycott till they drop the prices for unlocked trade. For the previous s22 and fold and flip 4 models. CLEARLY SOME PEOPLE ARE BRAINWASHED STILL GETTING THEM. Sadly looking for clout as well. How pathetic.

I have been thinkin about, seriously, whether I should trade in my Note 22 Ultra, which is working perfectly to go after the new Galaxy S23 Ultra which is a lil smaller, but faster processor. With a few, and I mean very few things it has goin on like that processor, maybe camera, things like that, make we want to upgrade. But if my Note 22 Ultra works just fine amd is not far off from how the Galaxy S23 Ultra operates, why change in short?
I'm one of those that likes 2 keep with the latest but sitting here tryin 2 figure out if I even really need 2 even do/not do any kind of change? Please help me, anyone who would care to put in their advice on if I even need to or just put on the brakes cause, if it's not broken, why to even have to fix what's working just about the same, maybe even better or what?
Please be free to help me respectfully and give me ur pros and cons, if you even feel like responding! Something like this kinda eats @ ya, when it n shouldn't cause it's not thay big a choice that should be eating @ you, but it's kinda eating back @ me and I want to put it up in the fridge, kinda a poor use of words to use to describe it, but I hope u got what I'm trying 2 tell u, but didn't use the right words 2 do it. Sorry 4 that, not that important that it should be eating @ me, not like this where I can hardly type either. Please help me with some advice, pls?
Thanks to all who will respond and take care everyone in the rest of this New Year amd may we all succeed in what life has to offer us, LOVE...

I was really on the fence about buying the S23 Ultra since I had a Note 20 Ultra 5G that was still in like new condition. Like a lot of people I wasn't really thrilled about the trade in incentives but after considering the free storage upgrade and the future updates I decided it was enough to make this worth doing. Now that I have it I am so glad I did and for 3 main reasons I haven't seen in all the YouTube videos and social media posts I watched and read. First, I love the fact that the screen is flatter. This is because the phone is obviously thicker which reduces the radius of curvature. Second, the sound is WAY better than my Note 20. I still have my Note and I've been comparing the two side by side. The S23 sounds more like a good Bluetooth speaker instead of a phone. I actually enjoy listening to videos on my S23 where I used to tolerate them on my Note. The third thing which I've seen contradictory comments on is the battery life. It's amazing. I've had this phone for 3 days and I've charged it once. I've had my Note on at the same time and I've had to charge it everyday at least once. Before this comparison I would've said that the battery life on my Note was just like new. This has shown that it has definitely degraded some. It's still a great device just not as good as the S23 Ultra. So far I haven't noticed any bad things that I've read about or anything unusual with this phone. The S23 Ultra is definitely a winner in my book.

Second all points raised. Glad I moved on from the Note too.

As a new phone the battery should last longer and the S23 Ultra is definitely a step up but give the battery a year and you'll notice you'll be charging more often as well. Nothing wrong with it but it's a fact that a a new battery, it holds a charge longer. Enjoy 😉

You can't get YouTube clicks, likes, and subscribers without provocative videos it seems. Unfortunately. A lot of the reviews were saying it is not worth upgrading but that is completely subjective and Samsung pretty much hit it out of the park with the Ultra with the exception of this year's standard color choices IMHO. Otherwise it is simply a fantastic device. The preorder upgrades were very nice. Trade in values were horrific but you can always sell privately.

I agree with you. As far as battery life there are a ton of factors but the new s23 series across the line has much better battery life than last year.

I agree that the trade in incentives were bad based on what they offered in previous years but considering I still got $500 for my Note 20 Ultra 5G I can't complain too much. I started working from home this past year and I use my phone more like a mini laptop so this is where the S23 Ultra really shines. I sign lots of documents and this is the perfect platform for that. My Note is still a great phone in like new condition but even new right out of the box I encountered a few bugs and quirks that I haven't had to deal with on my S23. I didn't think they were that big of a deal until I didn't have them anymore. I'm going to take the full grace period to evaluate my phones side by side just in case the honeymoon phase is short lived and I start regretting my purchase. I don't think that will happen but it has in the past when I was too quick to send my old phone back to Samsung. That's how much I still like my Note.

Hi All, 

I currently have a s22 and was looking at getting an S23+. Is it worth the upgrade? Now, my driving factor in this upgrade is battery life but I want to know is there more to the S23+ than that. Any feedback would be appreciated.
