Description of Issue: Entry for Windows Phone projects seem to be really really small in certain situations. On iOS, the code works great, but on Windows Phone, the Entry fields are so small that you cannot even see the text you are entering.

Windows Phone's controls have a lot of built in padding, setting it to 35 includes that padding size and is simply not enough for it. I suggest using Device.OnPlatform to conditionally set a different size for Windows Phone.
