Sample project that demonstrates problem on specified device

(Android) Editor in ListView/TableView loses focus when Normal Keyboard is shown. You have to click back into editor to set the focus in order to get text into it. 
Here are the steps to recreate problem: 
 1- click into the editor field
 2- keyboard will show
 3- if you try typing - nothing happens
 4- click back into editor and then start typing to make it work

Running on a Samsung Galaxy Tab4 (SM-T530NU) android version 5.0.2

If using the floating or split keyboard, it does work correctly.

This issue as described is not reproducible when the project is using Forms, using both a simulator as well as a Samsung Galaxy S5 device. If it turns out that the issue still occurs after upgrading, specifically on the Samsung device mentioned, please feel free to reopen this.
