Steps to reproduce:
1. Open X.S/VS
2. Open APIDemo project from android sample.
3. Build the project.
4. It builds successfully.
5. Now change 'Target Android Version' and 'Compile using Android version'.
6. Build the project again.

Actual Result: It is giving build errors as showing in gist: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/685081862c71d1b8a4b7

Unfortunately, lowering the Target Android Version is not an applicable test case for Api Demo. The way the sample is designed it needs to be built against a high target framework, but is still able to run on lower API level devices.
