Tor for Android "provides essentially the same protections that can be found on desktop platforms" although there are some "feature gaps" according to a post in the official blog of Tor.

We made sure there are no proxy bypasses, that first-party isolation is enabled to protect you from -site tracking, and that most of the fingerprinting defenses are working. While there are still feature gaps between the desktop and Android Tor Browser, we are confident that Tor Browser for Android provides essentially the same protections that can be found on desktop platforms.
