Regression Status : This issue is also observed in Xamarin.Forms Stable release
Comment 1 Ben Beckley 2015-03-09 14:52:29 UTC

I had also run into this issue before. Try these steps...

1.) Go to XamSamples.Android project options > Android Build > Linker Tab
2.) Set the Linker behavior to "Don't Link" (make sure this is for Release Configuration)
3.) Clean and rebuild
4.) Follow the reproduction steps in Comment 1

If this doesn't work, I suggest getting a fresh pull from the repo and trying again (as when I did this it was with unsullied sample code).
Comment 3 Parmendra Kumar 2015-04-03 10:36:15 UTC
I have checked this issue with Xam.Forms Branch: 1.4.2 and observed that Android sample is getting crash on tapping View button of "StaticConstantsPage".

Hence closing this issue.
