Using the NamedSize enumeration for a FontSize, android tablets do not seem to adhere to a "Larger" size based on the tablet size. Given a 7" tablet, the NamedSize.Large returns a value of 21.78. Given a 10" tablet, the NamedSize.Large returns a value of 22. This font value does not seem to fit a larger device such as a 10" tablet.
NamedSize should return a larger font value calculated by the device's height/width.
Xamarin Forms Labs currently implements a FontManager that uses a DisplayManager service to get the height/width to scale a font.
