DevExpress
When you want to display spreadsheet based reports, it's really convenient as it has everything out of the box.
If you have very basic components like combo boxes or lists, there is hardly a point in using such a large component set.
In the end, it's a matter of finding a good balance between functionality and complexity.

Felgo
Felgo shines in rapid prototype development and fast iterations. It also has a very short learning curve compared to many other technologies that promise "code once, deploy everywhere." It is not appropriate if you are not willing to mess with the licensing related to Qt but I am still waiting for a clear answer on my doubts from the Felgo team.

I am happy with the constant feedback that I am receiving from the team. Although most of it is marketing related, there are some interesting and valuable materials that they have been pushing to ease my learning.

The quality of the documentation and the ease of use may be some important values to take into account.

We believe that the agility that we have acquired until now for developing apps for our business cases give this framework an important lead.

As with any product, Felgo has some edges to it, but from our past experiences evaluating "code once, deploy everywhere" platforms, we were really surprised at how fast the team went from exploring, into playing and presenting prototypes in very little time.

The dev cycle is really fast as I can get an almost instantaneous feedback on the changes that I make. And it is refreshing to see how I am able to target several platforms at once.

The javascript plus QML combination made it really easy to pick up for me and I am certain sure that many devs can migrate from Web only into multi-platform in a fast manner.

And there is also the possibility to implement C++ code if the need arises to support and bridge native libraries.

DevExpress Universal controls are much simpler to use, implement and customized as compared to Kendo. Learning curve for telerik is high, though level of customization that can be achieved with telerik exceeds that of DevExpress Universal. Found DevExpress Universal community support to be better then its competitors. License cost is also a wining bar here.

Return on Investment
DevExpress
  • It is good for asp.net application and it takes less time in development which we used two years back.
  • We have stopped with these tools when clients were asking applications to be built in angular or react. We have switched to Kendo.
