Had to get a new tablet.

My Samsung Tab A 10.5 2016 model's battery is giving up on me. It does not last a single day now. I looked online and bought a replacement battery that came with a tool kit. I watched several online videos but try as I might, I could not get the back cover off of it. I plan on still trying to replace that battery. I am thinking of paying a local repair shop to do it. Nothing wrong with it other than a charge does not last on it. Too bad I can't seem to get the back clips to loosen.
When I got the tablet, I was not sure if I would use it much. I found out I use it daily. With that in mind, I just purchased a Samsung Tab S6 Lite from the local Best Buy. I was eyeing the Samsung Tab A7 for 100 less, but the S6 Lite has a faster processor, more RAM, and an included S Pen. I went for the upgrade. I just finished ordering a Unicorn Beetle hard case off of Amazon for it. I love the case on my older Tab A so it was not a hard decision to get one for the newer tablet.
Replacing the old table's battery should give me a backup. I still have an old 4th gen iPad that I use for education.
