Results: Do you own a tablet? Have you upgraded it recently?

That's not to call them useless. Some tablets have their own niche — Apple's iPads are doing well and Microsoft's Surface Pro line is amazing for certain professionals. But, in general, these are devices that rarely get upgraded, which is why many manufacturers who are still in the game have pretty wonky refresh cycles for them.
We thought we'd ask you – do you have a tablet? Is it relatively new? Here's how that poll went!
Have a tablet? How old is it?
I have a brand-new one
Mine is a year or two old
Have one, more than a couple of years old
Mine is ancient. Hey, I think it still powers up!

Like you did not charge it forever and it won't take a charge dead? If so find the factory charger or a 2.1 amp charger and hold power and volume down or volume up does not really matter. Keep doing that it should eventually start to charge. My Nexus 7's would do that if you did not shut them down and let the battery discharge completely.

I have a Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. It's not the powerhouse it used to be, but I can't justify paying for another tablet. I'm going to have to have the battery replaced soon though. It doesn't hold a decent charge anymore

The Tablet category is being shifted towards the Notebook and Laptop categories... so it is normal to not upgrade them as quickly as a phone. Moreover, having a tablet for specific purposes, whether that is reading, playing games, browsing, etc... help reducing the strain on phones and viceversa, so the Tablet end up degrading at a much slower rate... I am OK having a 4 years old Android tablet (for me is mostly media consumption, and occasional browsing) but I am not truly satisfied when my phone has more than 2 years old. Now that I have a Surface Book, the tablet gets even less use and I look forward to having this 2-in-1 for at least 4 years...

I don't think I can live without my Android tablet. I just can't get used to Windows' crappy touch scrolling and uncustomizable touch keyboard, and all of Windows' ads. My tablet may have been three years old already, a Samsung Note 10.1 2014, but I don't think anything can replace it yet.

It's a bit scary to realize that my tablet is going to hit the fourth year mark already. I still use it every day for the majority of my mobile activity... I really wish Android kept the single bottom bar layout though, plus water-resistant tablets are almost nonexistent now.
