According to Google's documentation, the <application> element must be the last element in the AndroidManifest.xml file. In scenarios where it is not the last element I've observed a noticeable decrease in performance, especially when scrolling.
The manifests for new projects created in Visual Studio and Xamarin Studio _do_ already have <application> as the last element already. However if it is changed by the developer, the generated manifest follows the new order so this might be something we should verify while generating the manifest file if possible.
### Steps to Reproduce
1. Run the attached repro project, preferably on Android 5.x or below
2. Scroll through the list of items
3. Open the "Properties > AndroidManifest.xml" file
4. Modify the file so the <application> element is last
5. Run the app and scroll again
### Expected Results
The list should scroll smoothly as there are no complex items
### Actual Results
When <application> is not last the list scrolling performance is choppy.
