This question is never going to be fully answered because there are so many variables that will be defined by whether you should build using React Native or the Native language itself, if you're really interested in how the field of React Native differs from Native Android I'd recommend listening to this episode of Fragmented (fragmentedpodcast.com/episodes/108/). With Native development which is where I focus my time you can do a lot of really awesome features that React Native would not allow you just because of the ecosystem that surrounds Android development.

After that novella, I'll just say that I lean more towards to Native Android development unless you dont have the resources to dedicate a devoted iOS team to an iOS application for cross platform use.
