When using a ViewCell containing a Label, the Label's text is noticeably blurred when compared to the text in any other Xamarin Cell object (TextCell, etc).
See attached screenshot taken from an iPad mini (physical device). The second cell is an object that extends ViewCell.

Screenshot of ViewCell with blurred text
This thread on the Xamarin forums discusses the issue, I've linked straight to a post by Greg which may point to the underlying cause of the issue.
I have checked this issue and unable to reproduce it.
I tried following steps to reproduce it.
1.Create a Xamarin form application
2.Add a class(.cs) and did some code in it.
3.Run the application.
class TableViewFormDemoPage : ContentPage
Label header = new Label
Text = "Project Details",
Font = Font.BoldSystemFontOfSize(30),
HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center
TableView tableView = new TableView
Intent = TableIntent.Menu,
Root = new TableRoot("TableView Title")
new TableSection("Table Section")
Text = "Text Cell",
Detail = "With Detail Text",
View = new Label
Text = "A View Cell can be anything you want!",
// Accomodate iPhone status bar.
this.Padding = new Thickness(10, Device.OnPlatform(20, 0, 0), 10, 5);
// Build the page.
this.Content = new StackLayout
I observed that label text inside viewcell working fine as expected.
Let me know if I missed anything to reproduce it.
Could you please provide us Sample project with build and environment info, So that I can able to reproduce at my end
Screencast regarding same:
VS 2013 professional update 3
The blurring is still present in a custom ViewCell.
What you missed is that you did not use a StackLayout in your code, just like the one in the Xamarin forum thread.
Your View is a Label, but please try and make your view a StackLayout.
As per Comment 4 I implemented stacklayout in a view but still getting same.
Could you Plase provide us sample project,Ide log,Xamarin.Forms version So that we can able to reproduce this issue at our end

I did not get to send you the requested sample code and info, but after the latest Xamarin.Forms update (220.127.116.1149) the blurring is gone. The labels are sharp. In my opinion, the bug may be marked as fixed.
As per comment 6 with latest Xamarin.Forms(18.104.22.16849) bug has been fixed .
Hence I am closing this issue.
