I have a 1st gen Nexus gathering dust - battery failure killed that long ago. I was an early adopter of that device.
I currently am still using my 2nd generation Nexus 7. After a software update bricked it, I did managed to get into the queue to have it repaired back in 2015. Today, it's battery life isn't great, but it's still chugging along. It's primary use is bed-time reading, and listening to police scanner audio while falling asleep.
My wife killed the Nexus 9 (I need a bigger screen) not long ago with a charging port issue (repair was prohibitively expensive...), so I purchased a Samsung Tab S2 from Costco not long ago.
Now, she does use iPads at work...and I think she'd like one for home. However, since I'm the IT person here, and have never been an Apple fan...it probably won't happen.
