I had a Samsung phone which gave me 48 extra GB. It's expiring now, why should I pay?

Hi,

  I had a Samsung phone which gave me 48 extra GB.

Now the offer is expiring and I keep getting reminded to upgrade.

I deleted everything over the free 2GB limit.

Why should I pay for more extra space when I can get 5 free GB with OneDrive or 15GB with Google?

Are you planning to increase your free space limit to remain competitive with others?

Thanks

Because Dropbox works so much better than either of those (or any other storage/sync solution I've used). I have about 54GB of files on Dropbox and I have 56GB of free storage, yet I still pay for Pro so I get some additional features (password/expiring links, etc.) and faster Support when I need it.

They probably aren't, nor have they needed to really. They continue to increase their user base with the 2GB offering, so what is their incentive to increase it? Even if they were planning on it, it wouldn't be known until it was announced (Dropbox typically does not release information about upcoming features or time lines).
