Build Gradle is amazing. Best emulator performance compared with others IDE's, updates for fix bugs and features monthly. Memory Monitor analysis abilities. Compatibility with all android API level version. Version Control.

The best and the most marketed thing about Xamarin is the cross platform solution with native behavior. All you need to learn is C# and then you are good to make Android, iOS and Windows from one single code base. You dont have to go around and learn Java...

I have found Android Studio to be glitchy and encounter a lot of errors. It is really slow to load most of the time and is very particular about sdk and gradles which make it less user friendly for those who don't have as much experience.

it was much more difficult to implement a cross platform solution as advertised.
