The Android version shares a small file. There is no way of choosing the quality like with the iOS version, where you can use the Export option to share and choose the specs. The Export option on Android only allows photos to be downloaded to the device.
Please fix this. I think it could be a simple oversight. Surely it is possible to do. Or is the Android version crippled on purpose to encourage us to use iOS?
Otherwise, the features seem the same. But with the Android update coming out slightly behind iOS, that makes me think iOS is the primary concern and Android is an after thought.

Android's "Export as" option has the same settings options as the iOS version, including the Quality option. As you point out, however, the subsequent "where to" options on Android are confined to the device Gallery.
The "Share to..." option on Android, however, does not have the same export settings as the iOS version. Coincidentally, I answered a very similar post this morning, and the explanation is that when it comes to sharing to social media or third-parties, the control that Lightroom has is limited by the Android operating system:
I suspect this ties in to the lack of alternative destination options when using "Export as".
There is no concern in my mind about the Android version being "deliberately crippled to encourage us to use iOS", that wouldn't seem to make much sense given Androids vastly greater world-wide market share. The last updates came out at the same time, AFAIK. Since LrMobile was first introduced, the iOS and Android apps have greatly converged, but there are still some differences which I think are much more to do with the different operating systems than any other reason.
