Android Studio
I use Android Studio, you just need to learn how to write Gradle configs because the Studio is incomplete.
Sometimes I don't use an IDE, my signing configs are in Gradle and I just need to run gradle build to generate a signed apk. The only thing I need in the IDE is auto-complete and auto-import.

Android Studio - I was impressed with the beta, it seems to be coming together well.

I have been using android studio for over 4 months, and i'm very impress with it with the latest updates that it got. Since i began with developing android apps i used Eclipse for a while, but since i switch to android studio i found it much easier and faster to code and make apps, i'm not saying that eclipse is bad, don't have the futures that android studio has. So i recommend to you to give android studio try see how it goes.

Still on Eclipse, but considering moving to Studio soon. It looks pretty nice atm...

For the future, studio is the way to go. Might wait until it is out of beta though.

I personally prefer Eclipse than Android Studio, but i really think that's just an opinion, as you will find users that prefer Android Studio than Eclipse
Just spent some time and work with them so that you can decide yourself

Even if i'm a Eclipse Dev in JEE, for Android i prefer to use Android Studio, i think it is much more smarter.
Anyway for avd i use genymotion.

I worked in mobilepundits as a Android developer and according to me Android studio provide best Android development environment and improvements over eclipse ADT. It offers me to use variety of functions such as

Flexible Gradle-based build system.
Build variants and multiple APK generation.
Expanded template support for Google Services and various device types.
Rich layout editor with support for theme editing.
Lint tools to catch performance, usability, version compatibility, and other problems.
ProGuard and app-signing capabilities.

Android Studio is great but I wish there was a powerful android simulator, not just an emulator. For example like in web development you can edit your layout and instantly see the result, or in Unity or Unreal Engine you can instantly play your game from the IDE and change parameters and objects while playing the game. In Android you have to compile the whole project that takes at least 5-10 seconds.
