I am going to buy ODROID-XU4 and run BOINC on it. I am not sure which OS should I choose, Android or Ubuntu Linux. Could you advise?

It might be a case of First pick your project, THEN pick your OS.

Well, I already crunch few projects (I hope my sig will load properly here). I focus mainly on projects with badges, especially math/astronomy/physics ones.

I am looking for opinions from someone who already uses this hardware for crunching. I read some posts here and there, but they generally focused on resolving some issues, I could not find one which would compare both OSes and had some list of pros and cons of both.

Personally I am familiar with Linux, so I thought about starting from Ubuntu. I also consider ordering two devices with different OSes and play with them for some time to see how they work.
