A little background--I had originally considering cutting the proverbial TV cord about 1 1/2 years ago but ended up being able to add a minimal TV package through our cable provider via a promotion that was cheaper than not adding any TV (they're also our internet provided). That promotion is due end in January and as streaming choices have improved, I have every intention of fully cutting the cord. The limited package we received didn't include any DVRs so I've moved a great deal of our viewing to streaming solutions (Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, test drove both Sling TV and Playstation Vue). We have both Apple TVs and Chromecasts. I personally prefer using the Chromecast but having a stand alone remote is a better solution for my family and the rest of my family uses iPhone/iPads. That is, until I remembered about my wife's Nexus 7 (2013) that she was no longer using. I repurposed it as a Chromecast server in our living room--basically it's the dedicated remote for my family to use, sits on a dedicated wireless Qi charger so it's worked out great. I'm looking to replicate the same setup for at least one other TV, possibly 2, in our home in the coming months and first thought was to pick up another used Nexus 7 (going for $100-125 on Swappa) since the form factor is great, they're on Marshmallow and the wireless charging is key as it means my family can just drop in on the pad vs. remembering to plug it in. My concern is these are 3 year old tablets that won't see anymore updates. Can anyone think of another cheap phone or tablet that fits these requirements?
