Ionic 4 - Cordova not working only if app downloaded from Play Store

I’m facing a ridiculous bug in my Ionic 4 (beta 15) app that I really don’t know how to debug: when I upload the app on the Play Store then all the Native/Cordova features (full screen, storage, file system, my own Cordova plugin) simply don’t work. I can’t debug a release signed app so it’s hard to say why.

The same exact APK I uploaded to the Play Store (pruduction, release and signed build) works perfectly if I install it manually on the device without passing from the Play Store.

Has this ever happened to anyone? Can you suggest a way to debug this? Thanks!
