One of the facts which I did blog about was that, around April of 2017, I had purchased a Google Pixel C Tablet, which, in the meantime, had an O/S Upgrade to Android 8.1.0. That tablet is
nearing the end of its life, and it’s barely 3 years old.
Firstly, it has not been receiving any system upgrades since 2019.
Secondly, as of a few months ago, it has started the behaviour of ‘spontaneously rebooting’ every few weeks, even though all I’ve been doing with it was, to keep it idling.
Some people tend to dismiss this behaviour of certain Android devices, just spontaneously to reboot, as if it was insignificant. But to the contrary, I tend to look at this as a crash each time, just as if a PC running Windows had suddenly received a Blue Screen. It can be caused by several things, but in this case I’m afraid, it might be a hardware problem, especially, since I have not been installing much software on it, nor receiving System Upgrades, at least, in the recent months.
Therefore, I am looking for a replacement, Android, Tablet.
BTW, The dedicated keyboard that came with this tablet has continued to work, to this day. I guess that I was lucky, not to receive a keyboard with a degraded built-in battery.

As of yesterday morning, this tablet has finally bitten the dust. Suddenly, its welded-in battery can no longer hold a charge, after being fully charged, for more than a few hours, before going completely flat. What I find remarkable about this has been the fact that, at least under my care, the KB battery didn’t die before the tablet’s built-in battery did.
I wonder whether this early demise of the battery may have been due, to my often having left the tablet plugged in for very long hours, to get a full charge each time,?
