Hi! As far as I know Eclipse was very popular in the past when Android Studio didn't exist or was in early stages, but now, in my opinion, Android Studio is WAY better. It's an IDE specifically designed to make Android apps, so it has many more features and simplifies the task of creating apps. Plus you can design the UI with a drag and drop menu, which is really easy to use. I'm not an expert, but hope this helps :)
