Hi @AEM_Forum,

Please find answers to your questions below:

1. Does Adobe Phonegap create native mobile apps or Hybrid?

Phonegap does not create native mobile apps, it is more like a web browser view wrapper with extra hooks for tying into native features. It use JS/HTML/CSS and other web technologies to create an app.

2. When to choose Adobe Phonegap vs Creating Mobile Apps front end and AEM Experience/Content Fragments?

In general Adobe Phonegap is not supported any more. Support expired on 1st October 2020. More information can be found under:

Base on above, I think that Adobe Phonegap nowadays is not a good idea. Instead I think you can consider web page with responsive design. If this is not enough, then headless solution with SPA or native mobile apps could be way to go.
