i would say Unity. i was a newbie 2 years ago and struggled to choose the platform, and came across unity. and it was not so hard to make on as unity has a huge community supporter, and people help me a lot on that, managed to make my first game with in 1 months (long but for a newbie it's great). and when i check on APKnite(the site i post my game on) it has over 12k download, which is amazing!

AGK is allot more suited to mobile devices than unity ever has been or will be
which makes AppGameKit the choice for mobile development. Sure there are plenty of android apps made with Unity but they require higher spec phones and tablets

Unity is one of the best android game development platforms I've ever used. My vote for Unity.

AGK or Cocoa are good options., of course it depends entirely on what your "End Goal" is.
If Engine Development sounds interesting, then I'd HIGHLY recommend OneLineCoder Pixel Engine., and it's accompanying YouTube Series 'Code-it-Yourself!' on David' JAVIDX9 Channel.

It's not strictly going to support Android "As-is" … but perhaps a good first project could be to try to add support for Android, to use it.
Worth checking out.
