## Overview

There is a report of an issue with Xamarin.Forms in Android only (it works as expected in iOS) when using KeyboardFlags.CapitalizeSentence to set up a keyboard defaulting to capitalizing the first letter in each sentence. I was able to reproduce the issue in both 1.0.6188 and 1.2.2.6243 on multiple Android devices. I have attached a sample application that can be used to demonstrate this issue.


## Steps to reproduce

1. Open the attached project
2. Run on iOS
3. Click in the text entry area
4. Start typing. Type at least two sentences. Note the behaviour.
5. Run on Android
6. Click in the text entry area
7. Start typing. Type at least two sentences. Note the behaviour.


## Actual results

The first letter of every sentence is not capitalized on Android devices.


## Expected results

The first letter of every sentence is capitalized on Android and iOS devices.
