Final App Size Bigger than 10MB! with Xamarin.Forms

We have a problem with the final application size which was developed in Xamarin.Forms and its final size has come to 26MB which is still bigger. As part of optimization, we have looked over the plugins, we have used around 13 plugins, we have used "SDK Assembly Only Linker" for releasing the App", unwanted images has been removed, Still its 26 MB!

Client wants it to be in range of 9-10MB not 26MB! What else can be done ?

    The customer requirements are impossible by using Xamarin.Forms.

    I believe this is most likely down to Xamarin itself. i.e Mono + Forms Abstraction.
    As the guy states above, these sort of requirements are impossible with this framework :neutral:

    Keep in mind that, for example, Google offers up to 100MB space to place an app in its Store for a basic subscription. That should give you an idea.
