Find refurbished and second-hand Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus deals

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

Big and beautiful: that’s the Galaxy S9 Plus. In terms of features and power, you won’t see huge differences from the S9, but the S9 Plus’s dual-rear cameras and huge 6.2-inch QHD+ display will certainly convert some doubters.

As new Samsung Galaxy models are released, prices will gradually come down on older models as people look to upgrade their phones - particularly for refurbished mobile contracts.

What is a refurbished Galaxy S9 Plus?

A refurbished phone is an unwanted handset that has been returned to a mobile supplier or network for whatever reason - possibly due to a fault or the owner simply changed their mind.

If it’s refurbished, it means the phone has been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.

What's the difference between a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus deal and a brand-new model?


Well, if it’s refurbished it means the phone has been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.

Sure, a refurbished phone might not have quite the same lustre as a brand-new model; but it will have at least been thoroughly tested and should still function as new.

Here’s a few reasons why you might want to opt for a refurbished phone:

  • It's cheaper - because a refurbished phone isn’t fresh out of the box, it’ll be cheaper than buying a brand-new model.
  • Warranty - if you buy from an established retailer or one of the major networks, you’ll likely get a warranty. The warranty usually lasts around 12-months, though the time period will vary depending on the manufacturer.
  • Lots of choice over which device, network and allowance.
  • It's eco-friendly - naturally, recycling phones is better for the environment.

Is the Samsung Galaxy S9 worth buying?

First things first, the immense size of the Galaxy S9 Plus won’t be for everyone - we’re in serious phablet country here. And there may not be enough here to convince current owners of the S9 and S8 Plus to upgrade. But… this is still a fantastic phone.

Throwing together all the best bits of premium Samsung models with a dazzling 6.2-inch screen is a pretty enticing prospect. Particularly when you consider its extra RAM (6GB) and battery life, 128GB of internal storage, and a camera that boasts dual-aperture technology - which Samsung claims mimics the human eye. Clever stuff.

The Super AMOLED screen is a delight to watch your favourite shows on, and the new Exynos processor means it’s quipped to handle HDR movies and 4K. Gamers will love it, too.

But this super-sized beauty may simply be too big for small hands - and smaller wallets - so it’s worth considering whether the S9 or S8 Plus is a better bet for you.

How do I find the best refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus deals?

The best refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus deals will depend on your needs and how you use your phone.

You can filter by:

  • Monthly allowance - There's plenty of choice here over what you can get. Tariffs range from a minimal allowance up to unlimited everything. Pick a small one if you don't use your phone much, or lots of data if you like to browse and stream all day - though most of us are satisfied with 2GB-5GB of data.
  • Budget - Think about how much you're willing to spend on your mobile bill each month, and how much you can spend upfront today.
  • Network - Not all phones are available as refurbished handsets but you should still compare mobile networks. Some also have special offers for existing customers.

Once you've selected all the things that are important to you, you can sort the available deals by cost to see the cheapest, by data allowance to see the most generous, or just take a look at our top picks.

How do I find cheap refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus deals?

Signing up for a refurbished mobile phone contract is generally cheaper than a new handset contract - particularly a Samsung contract.

Each time a new Samsung Galaxy model is released, the older Samsung models tend to come down in price - though you won’t notice a huge difference in refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus contract prices until a few more Samsung models have been released.

Search our deals table to see what’s on offer from different mobile networks, and consider the following:

  • Work out the number of minutes and texts you will need each month
  • Think about your data use - data-hungry apps and watching movies on the go means you’ll need a decent data allowance
  • Compare refurbished contracts by upfront cost against monthly fee
  • Pick a deal through a reseller, such as Carphone Warehouse - that is, a company that buys handsets and SIMs in bulk and passes the savings onto you.
