Ionic Cordova Build / Manifest Supported Devices on Play Store

I'm using Ionic Cordova for building an Android app. I've built and deployed the app to Play Store using Ionic's deployment instructions. This has worked fine apart from, I only support 5674 devices. Many devices like Nexus 5 (which I developed with) is not supported.

I am assuming this is something to do with my config.xml or AndroidManifest so posted below:

config.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

Any ideas? Thanks.

Answer

I think you'll find if you remove the <compatible-screens> block from your AndroidManifest.xml that will fix it.

Did you add them yourself or was it a plugin?

The reason being is that the Nexus 5 is a xxhdpi screen and the compatible screens doesn't have that. Either add them all (xxxhdpi too) or remove the whole block
