Hanging on Android 5.1 Lollipop

Seems Capacitor is hanging on Android 5.1 Lollipop, can anyone confirm?

According to the Browser Support page Android 5.0+ is supported. I have a Moto G 1st Gen with Android 5.1. Just did a factory wipe and installed no apps, updated all onboard apps. I created a new Ionic app (ionic start myApp tabs), made no changes to the code. Default tabs app.

This launches perfectly on an Android 7 device, both installed through Android Studio and through the browser. Also works fine on a Windows Chrome browser. But on the 5.1 device, either browser or app just hangs.

Anyone having the same issue?

Just found the virtual Android in Android Studio and installed Lollipop 5.1, it’s working. So it must be something in the Moto G. Also just figured out logcat in Android Studio so I’ll debug the Moto G on my own.
