This is the result of above defined code.

Dear team,
I have found an issue on ListView, unwanted free space on top and bottom side of all ListView in my project. In this case the ListView begins on the end of the mobile view.

And the worst thing is, this issue is not effect in all mobiles. This issue was found on HTC 820, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge etc...

I have shown below a example of my issue, its results also attached.

var listView = new ListView () {
	BackgroundColor = Color.Accent,
	SeparatorColor = Color.Black
listView.ItemsSource = new List<string> {
	"First Line",
	"Second Line",
	"Third Line",
	"Fourth Line",
	"Fifth Line",
	"Sixth Line",
	"Seventh Line",
	"Eighth Line",
	"Ninth Line",
	"Tenth Line",
	"Eleventh Line",
	"Twelfth Line"

listView.ItemTemplate = new DataTemplate (() => {

	var layout = new StackLayout () {
		BackgroundColor = Color.White,
		Padding = 10

	var label = new Label ();
	label.SetBinding (Label.TextProperty, ".");
	layout.Children.Add (label);

	return new ViewCell {
		View = layout

Content = listView;

I believe this was was was fixed a long time ago. Updating Forms should resolve it.
