This issue seems to appear on any of the mentioned versions of Android, regardless of the manufacturer.
If you set the NavigationPage.BarTextColor property, it does not get applied on mentioned versions of Android.
It works perfectly on 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4, but not on other versions.
I've traced the issue to Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android.Platform's SetActionBarTextColor function.
I've observed this issue in a Xamarin.Forms project on Android 5.0.
