Bug Report

I created an app that works like a charm on two of my phones and one tablet.
The app downloads a ZIP file from my server to cordova.file.externalDataDirectory.
One some users though, the download does not even start.


On some user's phone, the download does not even start

What is expected to happen?

Download a ZIP from to the external app's data folder.

What does actually happen?

On my devices everything is fine.
On a friend's Huawei phone, the download does not even start and i get no error info.
I thought that this is due to any needed app permissions, but he checked that the app has
a storage permission.
It would be awesome if there could be any information or an example within the documentation about the necessary lines of permissions needed in config.xml


Made with latest Phonegap.
App is available in Play store (Remember the .GIF)

Command or Code
