I have factory reset my tablet 10 times. Will factory resetting an android device wear out Nand memory, ie UFS storage? How long are Twp and p/e cycles in ssd style nand storages?

Example Device > Galaxy Tab S7 FE 32GB
 
Writing to flash memory wears it out. So technically yes, doing a factory reset will wear it out.

But how long will that last? Could be 10 years, could be tomorrow if the SSD controller croaks. But I'm pretty sure the battery will give out first (as in, barely holds a charge) if you use the tablet a lot than the SSD running out of P/E cycles.

Then there's the question of why you're doing the factory reset that many times.

I was thinking of selling the device and buying a new one. The tablet is only 6 months old. But I was angry with myself. For acting ignorantly!

With which software can I learn the health and performance of my device's Nand/Ufs storage? Do you know of a program like CrystalDiskinfo?
