Both React and AngularJS are presently used by too many leading enterprises across niches. For news, entertainment, and travel companies in countries with a vast digitally educated population, these two frameworks are widely used. Both are Model–View–Controller frameworks which are a popular characteristic for most web app projects.

The key differences between Angular and React can be summed up with the following aspects such as componentization, data binding, performance, dependency resolution, directives, and templates.
Angular by connecting the Document Object Model (DOM) values to Model data through the Controller facilitates two-way data binding.
React uses one-way data binding and this allows directing the flow of data in one direction.
Because of the two-way data binding, Angular performance is relatively slower. The flow of data in two directions often causes performance issues.
Because of the virtual Document Object Model of React server-side rendering becomes faster. Thanks to this React apps enjoy better performance.
Angular by using basic Object Oriented Programming (OOP) pattern referred to as dependency injection, allows creating dependency directly in all objects.
React doesn’t come with the concept of dependency injection. To inject dependencies React developers can use several instruments.
Angular Directives provide a way to organize our work/code around the DOM. When working with Angular, these directives allow us access to the DOM. Apart from the directives it comes with, developers can create their own directives as well.
When it comes to React, this division between templates and directives doesn’t exist. The template logic or the directives needs to be written in the template itself. This actually does away with many complications.
When it comes to building single-page web applications, both AngularJS and React are great options. On the other hand, they are totally different tools. Though some developers may comment that React is ahead of Angular or vice versa, choosing any of them really depends on the particular project.
