Android push notifications slight delay vs ios

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 4.0.1
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android/iOS

This is my first app and has been live for a few months now so forgive me if any of this comes off naive. I use expo push notification service to send notifications when I post new content to my react native app. After getting feedback over this time and tracking notification taps, it’s clear the iOS has a significant time advantage over Android. Every time the first 50% of taps are almost exclusively iPhones, with Androids trickling in later. My android users complain they are often “late to the party”. My notifications are time sensitive as I post when a company has limited free samples available and once all are claimed, they are gone. I am thinking maybe I was wrong to go the push notification route since seconds count in my case, I had previously hoped that any time difference would be insignificant but I suppose the 1-2 minutes delay is just too great. Is there anything i can do about this before looking to other notification solutions/outlets? I worked so hard to implement push notifications and was so proud when I got it working I hate for it to go to waste :slight_smile: But if its hurting half of my audience then it is what it is. Thank you for any input.
