After spending a few days researching and reading other articles on these two frameworks, I have found that there is a lot of give and take when it comes to comparing the two. Angular is the better choice for some projects while, for others, React is better. As always you should asses the project that you are working on to find out what best suits your needs. Hopefully these comparison charts can help you with that decision.
