HasShadow property is ignored on Android and we don't see any shadow on the Android devices. Meanwhile, it works perfectly on iOS
// The root page of your application
MainPage = new ContentPage
Content = new StackLayout()
Padding = 20,
BackgroundColor = Color.White,
HasShadow = true,
BackgroundColor = Color.Blue,
Content = new Label()
Text = "This frame should have a shadow",
TextColor = Color.White
Thank you for your report. At this time there are no plans to implement any changes around this issue.

Some suggestion about how to force a shadow on Android ?
I'm trying to do something like https://developer.xamarin.com/samples/xamarin-forms/Effects%5CShadowEffect/
but it's throwing exception on InitializeComponents when design is build with xaml
@Jason Smith, your answer doesn't make any sense.
What do you mean by you dont "have a plan to implement any changes around this issue"?
Is it impossible, is that what you are saying, then I would rather prefer HasShadow removed from frame?
