You'll find out soon enough as to why this happened! Keep an eye out for next week's video! 🤦

So, I don't know about you lot but I felt that Samsung Unpacked was a bit of a letdown. We got the S23, S23+ and the S23 Ultra; all of which look almost identical to last year's models, and with only a few very minor improvements. In the year where the iPhone got a bit more of a shakeup than usual, I'm left feeling bitterly disappointed in Samsung. Usually, I'm disappointed by Apple and it's interesting to see that many people are voicing the same strong opinions about Samsung not refreshing their designs.

On another note, the trade in prices are screwed in the US. Last year I'm pretty sure that you could upgrade from the S21 to the S22 and pay just $100 after the trade in. I have traded in my S22 Ultra for £600 off, which means the phone will still cost me an additional £600! Though I did get a free upgrade to 512gb. So, swings and roundabouts I suppose.

Naturally, I'll be giving my thoughts on how it performs once I've got my hands on it. Though I'm trying to figure out how I get in with Snapdragon and Samsung so that I can be invited to their events and given the phones ahead of time, like so many other creators have done!

What did you think of Samsung Unpacked? Did you upgrade? Are you going to?
