On Windows Phone, global implicit styles set in the native App.xaml file (not Forms App.xaml) are being ignored. This worked previously in Forms 1.5.1.
### Steps to Reproduce
1. Run the attached Windows Phone project
### Expected Results
The Entry and Label elements should have a large font size and some other customizations. See expected results image.
### Actual Results
The Entry and Label controls have their default styling.
### Environment Info
Tested with Forms 2.0.1-pre1

As of the latest stable version (126.96.36.19905), the styling applied to the Label (TextBlock) in the example project works without modification.
For the Entry control, the style should target the Xamarin.Forms.Platform.WinPhone.FormsPhoneTextBox class. In the App.xaml of the example project, replace
and be sure to add the 'xmlns:winPhone="using:Xamarin.Forms.Platform.WinPhone"' namespace declaration to the Application tag. The style will then produce the expected results shown in the attached screenshot.
