Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with

messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
1. The built-in cells are very ugly and have no margin. And it doesn't allow us to directly add margins to built in cells.
2. The group index (what appears AFTER you click on a group header) has black text over accent-color background which is of low contrast and is very awkward. In UWP, this style should be accent color text over transparent background.
Can you upload reproductions comparing the standard UWP behavior with the Forms behavior, and what is expected? This is much more useful than dealing strictly in descriptions. Screenshots are helpful as well.

Compare between Xamarin.Forms UWP and something else
[Style compared to Android.png]
This attachment is a comparison between Xamarin.Froms on Android and on UWP. You can easily see that the margin behavior is very different. The Android version is very elegant and totally usable, and the UWP version doesn't seem usable.
[Style compared to Windows native apps.png]
The other picture compared the style between Xamarin.Froms on UWP and a the Setting app on Windows. You can see that the margin behavior also differs a lot from other native Windows apps.
Also, you can see from this picture that the margin should of the cell not of the list, so changing the margin of the ListView make no use, and it the TextCell doesn't have a margin option.
And by the way, the "A" in the group header is clickable, but it has neither hover effects nor special colors to show its clickability. The Start menu has hover effects on group titles, and Groove Music app and People app has accent color on group titles.
This should have been updated some time back -- we cannot make any changes to this at this time due to how this would affect other platforms.
