With something like Phonegap you may not get the full use of the different tools that a native Java app could provide. I believe the app will also run slower then a native app. In my experience it is best to go native if possible. It makes the user experience much more seamless and causes many fewer headaches. I have never worked with Phonegap but I have worked with Kivy which was a Python framework for android and believe me I wish I had simply used Java which surprised me because I absolutely love Python.
