    Bluetooth will better on your battery. Wifi sucks the battery quick if your using the hotspot.

    This ^^

    Bluetooth 4.0 consumes a lot less than wifi

    BT is a lot slower. When I use BT with my ipad 4 using LTE, my speeds are less than 2 Mbs, with wifi, over 15 Mbs.

    thank you.

    looks like: if i need speed i will use WiFi and if battery is low i will use Bluetooth.
