Sencha Touch 2: List of problematic Android devices
So at this point I'm fairly bored of receiving negative android market reviews because sencha touch doesn't work properly without force closures and just really slow behavior on some android devices.
Also as android market developers will know, excluding by android version is very difficult.
So I was hoping others will be able to contribute to and benefit from my list of devices that should be excluded from sale for android market. Maybe sencha might try and improve performance on the non honeycomb devices too!

I'd like to say my Nexus 7 running 4.1.1 currently and since it has Chrome as the native browser it's actually doing pretty good. It's not always ST2 (although we are always making improvements) or Android but the browser. The browser is really the biggest issue.Mitchell Simoens @SenchaMitch

My ASUS Transformer T300 works fine with Sencha Touch 2.0 with the chrome browser.
Crap with the android native browser - but then again the native browser is crap full stop.

Just to clarify, this list is for the purposes of google play device filtering.
Therefore as frustrating as the presence of chrome is, those tablets stay on the list while the native browser remains so rubbish. Because chrome being on the device ain't going to help stop those 1* reviews coming after months of heart pouring development!
Mitchell, I'm very interested to hear whether phonegap/sencha packaging for nexus would use the standard android browser or chrome? I've had negative feedback from users so far.

I'm noticing a bad scrolling in Nexus 7 using Sencha Touch 2.0/phonegap 1.7.
