Slow on emulator

So i’ve been developing facebook auth and camera.getPicture… i see the app runs with a lag in genymotion emulator. Is this normal? Or it will boost up once i build the application for production?

It’s normal. Best way to get an idea of how fast your app works is to run it on a pyisical device.


Yeah a simulator is no replacement for a real device.


I gave up about genymotion and Ionic. Something in Genymotion got angry with Ionic in Macs. So, I started to use the Android Studio Emulator (yes, I installed the entire IDE just for the emulator) and it is much less slow.

Facing the same problem. Any idea why it’s so slow on emulator?
