Pros and cons of android app development using C#/.NET technologies versus Android Studio?

Hello all, novice here. I have a burning question. I have a plan of putting an android app into google play. I noticed there is a lot of new technology allowing of create android app using C# (Mono, Xamarin). What would be the pros and cons of using Mono/Xamarin vs Android Studio in making android app?. Would creating an app in Xamarin/Mono be slower in some ways, would I not be able to create as complex of an app? Some companies hire developers to create native app, why do this when you can create in .NET and convert it via Xamarin/Mono, it seems much less of a hassle, is there a benefit to having their product made in Android Studio vs Xamarin/Mono? Thank you!
