Upload file using ionic native or backend REST api

Hi all…
I need to upload camera image to backend server.
Which one is better ??

  1. Using ionic native camera + file-transfer…or…
  2. Using ionic native camera + REST api file upload from backend service.
    Thanks in advance.

Hmm, that really just depends on your comfort level.
I’m all for just letting the web handle most thigns and using a plugin when I need to. So I’d have to vote for the camera plugin + http.post

Thks for reply @mhartington,

Already try for option no.2.
Using ionic native Camera and FileUpload REST api from Backendless service.
One of Request Header from backend was Content-Type:“multipart/form-data” and I’m using imageURI / FILE_URI from Camera and upload it to backend.
Could it be a problem ? Because my upload was successful and no error and return a fileURL but the image file was not save / available at backend file storage.
Please an advice.
Thanks in advance.
