Is React Native alternative to Java and Kotlin native apps?

Building native apps is harder in Java, so what is better React Native (think JS) or Java and Kotlin. Performance: is React Native apps are performant as Java and Kotlin, I ask because hybrid mobile apps are not performant and how about React Native

Absolutely. It's even much simpler. In addition, with react native, your code also allows you to target iOS. It is also almost identical to react js. As a result, web + native Android/iOS with very little code. Performance level is very good, because after that, it translates into native code. I mean, it's Facebook behind so serious.

Yep, they are quite similar in terms of performances, you can replace Java and Kotlin w/h RN and AFAIK you can also get a discrete control of your device by using external modules. Of course, if you already know JS, it worth a try, otherwise... don't give up and try to learn Java, Sololearn offers an excellent course to get started.
