Performance Slower compared to native due to bridge overhead Native code offers better performance
Development Time and Cost Faster and economical due to code reusability across platforms Typically slower and more expensive due to different codebases
User Experience (UI/UX) It closely resembles native UI but might not feel as natural or intuitive Offers best UI/UX tailored to each platform’s specific design language and features
Access to Device APIs Accessible via native modules or third-party libraries Direct access to device APIs without abstraction layers
