SfCarousel Hard to swipe Carousel Items on Android (Scroll View)

SfCarousel on Xamarin Forms has different User Experience on Android and IOS when the SfCarousel is placed in a SCROLL VIEW. 

In Android it is hard for the user to swipe between different carousel items whereas in IOS the user can easily swipe through them. I believe this occurs in Android because of the scroll view and carousel rendering.

Is there a way to achieve the same user experience on Android as in IOS ? 

Is there a way to disable vertical scrolling on the carousel item so that it is locked for horizontal scrolling only even if it is in a scroll view ?

It would also be great to align the carousel rendering on both IOS and Android platform to achieve the same User Experience.

Hi Rubens,

Greetings from Syncfusion.

We have analysed the reported behaviour in android "Carousel is not getting scrolled when placing inside ScrollView in horizontal orientation". We have restricted the carousel to be swiped inside ScrollView since when aligning the multiple Carousel horizontally, the first carousel touch must be restricted. So it is the behaviour of the control in android. Can you please let us know your exact requirement so that we will try work around to achieve your requirement.
