I am using Firemonkey in Delphi Seattle to build my Android APK, my screen has a TMemo at the lower end of the screen. During the entry the Mobile Keyboard covers the display of the TMemo and I cannot see what is being typed. How is this to be handled ?

Look at Delphi sample \TabSlideTransition in Object Pascal\Multi-Device Samples\User Interface.
Check for FormCreate,FormVirtualKeyboardHidden,FormVirtualKeyboardShown events.

I just want a normal behavior no special handling and coding.
Please allow me to explain.
If my application's has 10 lines (TEdit) filling up the mobile  screen such that the last 3 lines are overlapped with the Virtual keyboard as and when it comes up. In all other applications the entire screen moves up and the topmost lines are hidden and never the one we are typing into.
This seems to be an automatic behavior of Android.

Agree, so try to put main form to be client/screen aligned and all components should be on scrollbox...
