Android Studio vs. Unity
If I wanted to build a 3d game for mobile applications(based on android), should I use Android Studio or Unity?
I checked out the two and understood that the foundation for Android is Java, while Unity is C#. So now I'm confused as to what language I should really be learning first. :| Can anyone share their thoughts??

If you want to make a Unity game for Android, you'll need to use Unity.
The scripts you write in Unity are indeed written in C#, but Unity uses a virtual machine on target devices and has a scripting backend called IL2CPP that will translate your project into the code needed for a given device. In other words, you can make your game in Unity and build for Android, and Unity will figure out how to build your project for an Android device.
