I just moved from Android to Apple due to a chronic battery overheating issue with my last to Android phones. I'm happy to say to move was worthwhile. Carplay totally blows Android Auto out of the water. While I am aware AA is getting a refresh soon, the battery issues forced me to change now, and I can't be happier. Carplay is much faster, and the interface makes more sense. I was a rabid anti-Apple person until now, but I've evolved. Sure, it's only an iPhone7 (I'm cheap), but it works much better/smoothly than the Samsung phone I just decommissioned. When it gets to the point you can't even pick up the Samsung phone because it's too hot, things need to change. IMO, Carplay > AA.
