Thank you for taking the time to submit the bug. We tried to reproduce the issue you reported but were unable given the description. If you could please attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Forms project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue, we would very much appreciate it.  
For your convenience, we have created some reproduction best practices viewable here: https://gist.github.com/jassmith/92405c300e54a01dcc6d

I am able to reproduce the issue on iOS with the repro project linked in comment 2.

I think this is likely a dupe of https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=50362

It seems to be kind of universal that InputTransparent is not working as expected on Android. 

If you create a new Forms PCL Xaml solution and replace the Label in the Xaml with:

>	    <DatePicker
>	        Date="2016-07-08" />
>	    <Entry
>	            Placeholder="Enter Date"
>	            TextColor="Gray"
>	            FontSize="13"
>	            HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"
>	            InputTransparent="true" />
>	</Grid>

On iOS clicking on the entry pulls up the date picker, but on Android it does not, you start editing the Entry instead.

I am no longer able to reproduce this issue with 2.3.5-pre3 so I am marking this as resolved.
