Ipad Mini Retina VS Galaxy Note 8

Hey guys,

I have a Sony tablet S which I'm looking to replace with a 8 inch tablet such as the ipad mini retina or the galaxy note 8.

Although I use it mostly for reading, watching TV and Web browsing occasionally I take it to class to take notes.

Any opinions on which should I get? Is the pen input and multitasking worth the note's inferior screen? Are there other tablets I should consider (even if they use Windows)?
