If we compare PhoneGap and Native App then Native is too much more advance than PhoneGap. For getting high performance, we should not try this.

UI (User Interface)

The main problem with PhoneGap is it doesn’t deliver us graphical rich Apps. If you want advance and high quality of User interface, then it is not possible by using PhoneGap because it is unable to deliver this kind of functionality. It is its biggest lacking. Even we cannot get perfect UI by using this. Native App is the best solution for this, if you want high excellent user interface then you should choose Android and IOS platform to launch your Applications.

No Access to features of OS

You cannot access full features of Operating system because OS doesn’t allow it for this, so it is unable to access them. It is lacking access to operating system functionality and in many functions, it is very necessary to access them and without them we cannot successfully launch our main aim. In this many complex issue remain their unsolved and sometimes to fulfill our needs, we use third party framework and due to this our performance and quality decreases and we face quality issue then.

Due to using JavaScript for the front end of Applications then it leads us to a number of limitations.
