Most of the times the performance problem on touch devices is related to creation of automation peers. You can try disabling the creation by setting
AutomationManager.AutomationMode = Disabled;
and see if you get any improvement. Other than that, currently there isn't much you can other than disabling the TouchHandling on our side an implement custom touch logic based on the default touch events.
