Does the Samsung note 2 count towards being a tablet or a phone to be able to use this app?

Just a warning:
The iPad app does not seem to be as secure as the iPhone version.
Using the iPhone app, minimizing, then re-opening the app, would cause you to need to log in again.
Using the iPad app, minimizing, then re-opening the app allows you full access, provided the time difference is less than ~5 minutes.

So, if someone were to pick up your ipad just after you close the app, they could have some fun with your bank accounts.

Hopefully they fix this soon (it's a 1-liner in a config file to make it behave like the iPhone app).

I noticed that as well. You need to log off manually. :eek:

Does the app still require an OTP when adding beneficiaries or doing prepaid payments?

The version you're currently using probably doesn't make use of the screen space as well as the tablet version. I know on my iPad the iPhone version is very big on the screen. The tablet version makes better use of the space.
