Probably the area occupied by the status bar is pushing the stack down. 
Get "the working screenrect" to find out the actual screen dimensions 
your stack can use.

Since every Android device is different, it's usually easier to set the 
fullscreenMode to "showAll" and let the LC engine adjust the size.
