Problem with Mediacom and Samsung, ok with Simulatore

I friends.
I have a ContentPage with a Label

			Label labelTitolo = new Label ();
			labelTitolo.HeightRequest = 80;
			labelTitolo.TextColor = Color.Black;
			labelTitolo.BackgroundColor = Library.ColorIsoleSlot;
			labelTitolo.BindingContext = App.Globali.Attivita; //.destinazioni [App.Globali.DestinazioneCorrente];
			labelTitolo.SetBinding (Label.FormattedTextProperty,"Intestazione");
			labelTitolo.TextColor = Color.White;
			labelTitolo.FontSize = 40;
			labelTitolo.HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.FillAndExpand;
			labelTitolo.HorizontalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center;
			labelTitolo.VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center;

The FormattedTextProperty is binded to this property

		public FormattedString Intestazione {
			get { 

				var fs = new FormattedString ();
				fs.Spans.Add (new Span { Text=codiceArticolo + " - " + descrizioneArticolo, ForegroundColor = Color.Black, Font = Font.SystemFontOfSize(14) });
				fs.Spans.Add (new Span { Text=" Slot ", FontAttributes = FontAttributes.Bold,  ForegroundColor = Color.Black, Font = Font.SystemFontOfSize(14) });
				fs.Spans.Add (new Span { Text=codiceSlot, ForegroundColor = Color.Black, Font = Font.SystemFontOfSize(14) });
				fs.Spans.Add (new Span { Text=" Colli ", FontAttributes = FontAttributes.Bold,  ForegroundColor = Color.Black, Font = Font.SystemFontOfSize(14) });
				fs.Spans.Add (new Span { Text=colliResidui + "/" + colliTotali, ForegroundColor = Color.Black, Font = Font.SystemFontOfSize(14) });
				return fs;

Sometimes this label is not rendered correctly

Some examples

Mediacom.png and Samsung.png are not rendered correctly (Samsung has the problem that the label is on "system bar" on the top...) Simulator is ok. Also on a Asus 10' it's ok...

Have you some suggestions?
If I replace FormattedText with Text, it's all ok

Is the problem with the size or the position? 

Comment 2 Alessandro 2016-03-11 18:33:28 UTC
The size and the position. The correct one is the "SIMULATOR"
Comment 3 Rui Marinho 2016-03-11 18:58:32 UTC
Ok thanks. We will investigate.
Comment 4 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2016-03-25 23:18:22 UTC
I sat down to attempt to reproduce the issue you are seeing but Im not sure I understand exactly what is going wrong for you. Can you please attach a reproduction project and exactly which phones you are using.
Comment 5 Alessandro 2016-03-26 14:24:31 UTC
@jasonsmith I try to create a project to reproduce the problem

Screenshot and Test Project

Hi Jason.
That's it. You find a screenshot of the problem under Mediacom and a screenshot of the Control Panel.
There is also the Android project...
We have problem also with a Samsung but now I can't test with it and I don't know which version of Android it use. When I have the Samsung in my hands I try.

Let me know.
