The following sample has a TapGestureRecognizer attached to each label, however tapping the label does not fire the event. Only if you tap a very specific part of the label, does the event fire.
# Steps to Reproduce
1. Download sample
2. Deploy to Android
3. Attempt to tap “Info Plus”

Message box should appear stating that the tap has occurred
# Actual Results
Noting happens, unless you hit right above the “i” of “info”

Not sure if this issue exists in AppCompat.
In your repro project, StartPage.cs, comment out line 81 and it'll work as expected.
Here's what's happening:
You've marked the StackLayout VerticalOptions with EndAndExpand, but you've also set its height to 35. The StackLayout can't actually expand to encompass the Label, so the Label effectively ends up being laid out mostly outside of the StackLayout (it's hanging out of the bottom; to see this better, set the background of the Layout to one color and the background of the Label to another).
On iOS and Android, hit testing starts at the top level of the control hierarchy and works its way down (giving the container controls the option to intercept touches before their children handle them). So the touches on the parts of the Label outside of the StackLayout are in a weird place outside the hierarchy and effectively don't register at all. That's why at the very top of the Label (the part still inside the StackLayout) the tap gesture works.
Windows doesn't have this issue because it handles touch event processing differently.
