Default Android headunit advice needed

Title should read "Android FRIENDLY DD HU."
I need to get a DD head unit but I'm unsure of whose interface for Android works better, Kenwood? Pioneer? Other?

I'm trying to stay around $300 and the Pioneer AVH-X3800BHS looks really good to me.
13 band EQ, adjustable X-over slopes, etc. I'm just not sure of how good the software is. The phones are Galaxy S5 and Note 4, if that matters.

Any experienced users?

Are you fellas kidding?

No one uses Android with a DD HU?

WTF...

I leave for a few months for surgery on my neck, death close to me, and a kid that has been home schooled for the past 4 months due to extreme asthma....AND NOBODY uses a DD HU w/ an Android phone

F-Me...maybe I'll ask on Facebook

My note 3 works well with my 2.5 year old pioneer 4500. As does my iPhone 6. I still use the phone to search songs though so no idea if I can actually search from the head unit.

My really old Clarion VX709 HU works great with Android, except for phonebook. [too old for newer phones]
The Pioneer x940BT I got (for free) is quite finicky with Android BT connection.
I like the Pioneer $, x-over features, & App interface, but I'd spend slightly more IF the Kenwood were a better choice w/ Android.

I don't want to be the 'test dummy.'

Carjoying has some decent full android headunits. I was going to run one of the quad core units, but for my current application, wouldn't be advisable for me. Lol

i suggest the carjoying unit because there is huge support for it over on the xda forums. people have made these headunits shine with a little tweaking and software changes. i chose to do a stand alone android unit being fed into the stock radio for now do to what my intentions were for it. i wouldnt hesitate though picking on up to play with later down the road for the garage system.

what do you mean "interfacing" with Android? b/c that makes a huge difference in pricing. Android Auto is only going to be on units with a 7" screen putting you way over that $300 tag you have.

The app radio 1 interface on the Pioneer looked like an Android auto competitor. I want to be able to use google nav, from the phone to HU and google voice. I don't mind if I need to plug it in.

I'd be willing to spend more than $300 if the unit is worth it. I will look up these computer based units, but since the wife is the primary driver of this vehicle I need to keep it simple

Those joying ones have the android built in, right?
I just want, at least, to mirror Android screen/control to the HU. Wired is not an issue, just getting the screen OR app to the HU...That is my goal.
