This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Was in two minds about posting this. One of the best prices I’ve seen for a retail box, EU spec, dual-SIM S9 Plus in very good condition with minor marks/scratches (sounds like grade A- to me). Seller 12 month warranty. Reliable company (for me anyway - better than Magpie imo) who have largely moved off eBay - can you blame them?

Hope it helps someone out - the deal for the smaller S9 from your favourite mobile deal finder (@mrswitch) went hot at £220.99 with the previous code.

Expires tonight when the code runs out. 24 left at time of posting.

Sold out around 9:30am. If it comes back into stock I'll unexpire. Glad it went down well, I think HUKD took all of them!

Why were you in two minds? Cracking deal, and a better bet than a "good" from MM definitely.

Fyi though, bought a Sony XZ3 a few days ago in "good" condition, and it came boxed in pristine condition.

Just shows how MM grade their handsets really, 50/50

Because sometimes deals get slammed for no reason or like last night when I posted a good quality, well-reviewed ROMOSS 26800mAh power bank with USB PD in/out for £15.29, took me ages to write it up then it got taken down for ‘non-compliance’...

Yes. Didn’t bother me as I bought two myself - it’s a shame as @sam_of_london would have approved at that price!

Good brand.
doesn't post to Northern Ireland
Does this come with original changer?
Fab deal OP, I'd say grade B by the sounds of it, still a much better choice than most of this year's A series, going for similar prices.

I particularly like the fact they're honest about not checking battery health. I suspected it's new standard in industry and these guys are open about it, unlike most.

This phone still has at least 2 more years' Samsung support, so worth spending a bit more in battery replacement if necessary.

Honestly with their phones it’s probably an A- or B+ especially when compared with the rest of the industry but I’m happy with the price and they include 20% VAT so for a business it’s as good as £200. I’ve ordered one as I didn’t fancy keeping the S10+ at almost twice the price and this ticks the important boxes.

I think because it’s an EU spec phone they’ve taken the 2 pin mains charger out of the box.
Heat added, got one of these from them a couple of weeks ago. Mint condition, not a mark on it anywhere, great deal and excellent phone.

Thanks - that's how I was hoping it would be. I bought a few grade A- iPad Air 2s off them with similar description as this before and they were prestine that's why I think it'll be better rather than not. Since posting the deal, they've sold 13 in an hour - it must be us!

Also being the dual-SIM is a bonus as they're not all dual-hybrids on the S9 series.

Voucher could be pre-loaded, near where you type it in, see if there’s a voucher with that name already - you just need to tick it. But silly of eBay to not enable automatically though... if not, try a friend’s account.

Very good - not the best but it is quite a fast camera (I mean, everyone said Huawei phones are the best but I found the shutter speed slow and consequently blurry), but any recent flagship is more than good enough for most. You also get the 2x telephoto lens on this model.
Well that didn't last long, almost pulled the trigger too. Torn between this and the note 9 if/when a good enough deal comes up.

This is substantially less than a Note 9 with not a huge lot of difference (apart from stylus), I bought one of @MrSwitch deals on Note 9 before but I didn't keep it due to a fault - am happy with the S9 now, so the Plus with it's dual-SIM, extra RAM and 2x camera, will probably be just fine for now.

that's not true, the note 9 is leagues ahead, side by side the s9 plus just feels like a toy, the note 9 has a nice big screen and its wide which makes a good difference, the battery is 4000mah, it has the stylus and its overall just a better phone and worth the extra imo

the s9 plus was easier to hold in one hand while trying the fingerprint scanner on the rear tho

Except it just isn't. It's fine if you own a Note 9 but don't pretend the S9+ is anything less - it's got the same aluminium body and curved glass just 0.2 inches smaller that is basically imperceptible, the displays have identical 18.5:9 aspect ratios as well. Slightly bigger battery but both last the day (even the S9 does) so why does it matter. It's not worth the extra £100-150 more it would cost you now - we've done without styluses for long enough. I had both and I completely disagree with your assessment, obviously if you want the stylus then you have the Note.

side by side the note 9 screen looks much bigger and its wider which I think makes it seem even bigger , the note 9 design is classy the s9 plus reminds me of s7 s8 design, the note 9 has watercooling, 500mah bigger battery , the note 9 can be had for £70 more than this s9 plus price if you know where to look

forgot to mention 128gb starting for note 9, 64gb for s9 plus

I guess its courses for horses

How is this much bigger? If you can get a Note 9 in good condition for £315 you should post it, not just say 'if you know where to look'.

Note 9 has a vapour-chamber cooler that doesn't actually do a great deal (if you read the reviews on it: tomsguide.com/us/…tml) and 500mAh extra battery isn't anything to shout about because these flagships all last a day and won't make it to the end of a second day. It depends what you want but it sounds like you're defending a purchase by making it seem like a huge chasm of difference between the two when it isn't.

looks like a good bit of difference to me ( in the pictures )

the boxy design feels better in the hand too ( I don't own a note 9 anymore just stating what I observed when I had both these side by side )

It's obviously bigger, but it's not 'much', and I don't know anyone who compares things side-by-side like that - like when someone moans about a TV panel being cheap vs an OLED but then forgets they don't have LCD and OLED hanging side-by-side in their lounge so often ignore it after a short while. The boxy design does feel nice, but not in your pocket - that Note 8/9 and Sony Xperias pre-2017 dig into your leg in your pocket, the S-series slide in and out much more easily.

Anyway, can you like to this £315 Note 9 as I might go buy one anyway, no, I'm not trying to catch you out but if that's the price I might chance it and hope I don't get a broken 2nd camera module this time.
There's literally just been a post about a good condition note 9 for 287.99. The same seller also has better grade phones and, presuming the code works you could get excellent condition for about £320, pristine a smidge under £330.

I'll check it out, shame not dual SIM though, as that's a big bonus. They have the dual-SIM for £10 more, so that's probably worth it.

wasnt aware of the ebay, only the offical site
i just managed to bag one this morning, blimey they went quick! will make a nice cheap upgrade from my old S7 edge

Got mine today. Italian version it would seem.

Condition is very good........can't see any marks on mine.

Had a weird speech accessibility issue on the startup screen (where you select language) along with lots of Italian messages on screen and spoken - it wouldn't accept key presses rendering it unusable. I did a firmware refresh and it's all good now - odin + downloaded firmware. This would of been way too much for some people so would of probably just sent back.

This is my first Galaxy phone since the S2.
Thanks, just had mine delivered a few minutes ago, has 1x 4mm scratch on the screen apart from that it's perfect.

I'll turn it on and check the rest later.

That's Samsung TalkBack I think, it is one of the most annoying things Samsung has ever created, and that includes Bixby:
samsung.com/uk/…ne/

You need to triple tap to click and two finger scroll but the sooner you can turn it off the better.

Mine haven't come yet, but the Note 9 I ordered from 4Gadgets have and I think I'm going to keep that instead now given the difference. The S9+ I know someone who will want it.

Works fine, it was also in Italian when turned on but you could change that straight away on the first start up screen.
