privoxy doesn't do http 1.1, so no pipelining for you. Also, it reads the whole page before it passes any of it on to Tor, introducing considerable latency from the user's perspective.

You might be happier moving to polipo, assuming it builds in android land. (Does it?)

You will likely be happier still moving to 'no http proxy', if you can manage it. (Can you?)

Staying with privoxy seems like a smarter move at this point (I don't see polipo suddenly becoming maintained again anytime soon) unless the "no proxy" option is viable

Yes privoxy it is. Most users however use socks or transproxy anyhow.
