Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12529) Support default 'cellular' detection into cordova-plugin-network-information for Android
Date Tue, 07 Mar 2017 08:15:33 GMT


Zia Sergio commented on CB-12529:

Hi Joe,
Ok, but in this case why the IOS version of this plugin can return "cellular" instead of "unknown"
when the cellular type connection can not be detected for older IOS releases ?
OnePlus 3 device (Android 7.1) connected to the cellular data network of "Orange" or "Base"
belgian providers returns a technology unsupported by the plugin when 4G is available for
this connection.
Unfortunately I have not in my possession this device to debug what is the returned string
in this case.
But I have built a release of my cordova application with the purposed patch implemented for
test and it works.
In my opinion, when some application features need to be enabled/disabled in case of cellular
connection, it is more useful to know it is a cellular connection instead of an unknown connection,
even if the cellular technology can not be detected because perhaps too recent and not yet
supported by your plugin.
