Cordova vs Capacitor for older devices

I am starting in interesting project building a financial services app for a third world market. I’d like to use Capacitor, but client wants to stick with Cordova as he feels it would be better handled by older, slower devices on slower internet connections. Any thoughts on this?

I disagree with your client.

If anything, Capacitor will perform better than Cordova on older devices simply because of the way the startup code is architected, which eliminates the need for waiting on all plugins to initialize in order to interact with any of them.

great point - much appreciated!

Sdk version to me seem more important and you are likely to bump into very cheap devices showing various compatibility towards sdks

Not sure if a web based app then will be your best friend

But this you know better
