In Production mode (only), the expo app’s first API request is extremely slow in Android device. After that first request, everything else is normal speed.
After a LOT of debugging and days of time spent, I found out that the actual request is fast, it just takes a full minute before the API request is “initiated”. Then once the request is initiated, other requests are normal.
It’s almost as if the app is locked because the JS code is running, but all animations and interactions are smooth.
What could be causing this issue?
