Slow app when remote debugging turned off

When remote debugging is enabled everything works smoothly.

When i disable remote debugging, everything seems to be slow, whether it is navigation or XHR request or button click

Anybody faced this before ?

From the expo site on Debugging:

Rather than running your app’s JavaScript on your phone, it will instead run it inside of a webworker in Chrome.

My guess is that said webworker performs better than your phone running your app.

for the most part it’s actually faster with remote debugging disabled, because of the overhead of bridge traffic between chrome and the device
