Capacitor/filesystem performance issues after uploading file to app (very slow)

I am currently in the process of migrating my app from the old cordova file plugin to capacitor’s file system plugin.

However, I have now found that my app becomes extremely slow after I upload a small 3mb pdf file. This lag seems to only be evident where the attachment is displayed on the form. If i go to another area of the app it’s not lagging.

Is this a common issue? How can i resolve it?

Basically I am using capaawesome filepicker to select a pdf on the phone, then filesystem reads this file using readFile and i then store the dataUrl in my sqlite Db. Once this happens my app becomes extremely slow and laggy.

Sounds like a memory leak. have you destroyed all objects and variables?
