Default Tablet/ipad question

I'm in need of some advice from someone more tech savvy than me. I need a device that will let me do 2 things; 1. Run an app that requires blue tooth and 2. Let me take credit card payments with the square, which requires wifi.

These 2 apps are literally all I'll use it for. I've already decided that I want to go Apple with either an ipad or ipad mini, but when I look around I still see 800 different options and I'm a little overwhelmed.

Any one have any experience with the Samsung note? I'm probably going to go get one tomorrow. It can do everything I need it to do and it costs 1/2 as much as the ipad mini.

I had the note 2 for 16 month's and loved it. I just recently purchased the note 4 (phone series) . What do you need to know Soldier? Or are you referring to the tablet note series? I have the 2014 10.1 Note series in this form factor as well, and love it. I prefer Android or Windows on a tablet for different personal reasons. I have experience and educational knowledge of both operating systems, and other tablet/PC capabilities.

From the cost quote in your post, your probably referring to the note 8, is this correct?

Sorry, I just checked and it's actually the Samsung tab 4 that I'm looking at. I don't need it to do a lot, it's going to be used for my business to take credit card payments and run a couple apps. I could use my phone to do it, but it's going to make my life a lot easier if I just go ahead and get a tablet.

I guess all I need to know is whether the thing works, but my wife has a Samsung phone and she loves it. I've pretty much already make up my mind unless I hear something new that convinces me to drop the coin on the Ipad.
