Tablet lifespan - reasonable expectation?

How long would you expect a tablet to last for? My Galaxy Note 8 has crapped itself, i purchased in December 2013.

Issue began as screen flickering, but now won't turn on at all.

I'd expect at least two years from a model in that price range.

It does depend on what exactly is wrong with it though

Also depends on how its been treated like any mobile device.

Samsung has a 2 year warranty. Call their help desk, they're quite helpful. 0800 Samsung

ive got a tab 2 that is 4 years old ,and still going strong ,the samsung tab models are very good for the price.

ICT hardware has a depreciation of 3 years. So I would expect it to work without problems for that time at least.
