Samsung Cloud is now moving its content via your Samsung Galaxy Phone, to Onedrive instead, need to link your two accounts, click on the Redeem bonus storage button, and will be awarded an extra 10 GB storage for 1 year,
Your photos and cloud data will transfer over to the Onedrive service instead.
Currently, you only get a basic 5GB, but after linking via your phone, will go up to a total of 15 GB basic storage for 12 months, then it will go back to the standard.
Not as great as it used to be getting a 100GB new device bonus, but best to be aware of this upcoming change.
