The behavior of the SearchBar control's BackgroundColor property is inconsistent between the Windows platforms and inconsistent with the behavior of Entry. On all Windows platforms, when an Entry's BackgroundColor is set to something other than Default, that color remains whether the control has focus or not.
The SearchBar should have the same behavior. Here's what's happening on each platform:
Universal Windows: Background color not applied at all (focused or unfocused)
Windows 8.1: Background color applied when unfocused, changes to default background color when focused
Windows Phone 8.1: Background color applied when unfocused, changes to default background color when focused
Windows Phone 8: Background color applied when unfocused, changes to default background color when focused
