My experience with React Native was that it doesn’t consistently use native UI components, it uses UIViews that people have cobbled together into their own replications of varying quality.

So if you want a big grid of items, you’re not using a UICollectionView, you’re reimplementing it yourself or finding someone else’s attempt at that.

Maybe this is because a UICollectionView doesn’t have an identical counterpart on Android so it’s easier to just redo it from scratch? But I’d be surprised if the performance of these things is as good as the _real_ native ones, even if they make it out of UIViews.
