SwitchCell on Android

Even if the background is white the text color of switchcell is gray while other components have black text color. That does not look good and decreases readability. Since there is no TextColor property for SwitchCell (see #27084) then there's no way of walking around it.

At the same time text color is nice and black on iOS.
