Geolocation Plugin not working on Oppo smartphones


#1

We have built many ionic applications and we have deployed to a lot of clients. From a year and half we are observing that when our applications are used by Oppo users, they give us feedback that the location capturing isn’t happening. I believe it’s the plugin issue, since the device is able to render Google maps and navigations. The device fails to capture when it’s our ionic app that is being used. Any heads up will be greatly appreciated. Recently we found some users using Micromax phones also facing similar issue.

The same works on all other devices. We have tested on Motorolla, Lenovo, Samsung, Oneplus, MI, etc.

Hmm seems you are not alone: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/42061649/geolocation-html5-not-working-for-oppo-and-honor-android-phones

Does geolocation work in other apps?
