Logs from my repo of the issue

## Overview
From this enterprise desk case: 

Related to this bug report filed by the same customer:
"Xamarin.Android call performance is 4 times slower on inherited views" 

## Customer Message describing the issue
"...this is an extension of the bug 32126, which states that the call performance is 4x slower for inherited views. The 4x slower stated in the bug was related to inherited view creation. When related to method calls, its 13x slower on a Nexus 5 (on Android 5.0)"

## Steps to reproduce the issue
I was able to reproduce the issue as follows:
1. Build & deploy the app
2. Tap the button
3. The performance values are shown by the app.

## Expected results
The values shown should be the same or generally close, and fast. (Since this is a performance question,  it's tricky to describe the "expected" behavior, but the differences are noticeable.)

## Actual results
In my tests with an LG Volt API 19, I noticed the "non-threshold" test was around 3-4x slower than the "threshold" test. 
The customer reports that their Nexus 5 (on Android 5.0) is around 13x slower. 

Since I still noticed a discrepancy, I think it's still reasonable to consider this "confirmed" but it seems possible some devices might be hitting this to a more extreme degree than in my tests.
