Hi,

I have just had a customer say that he is not getting the menu (three dots) on his Samsung Galaxy S5 (lolipop) phone.

Is there a problem with the menu function on this phone/android version

Thanks

Stu

I'm not aware of any problems. Is it possible that the three dots for the menu were moved to the bottom navigation bar? This can happen if the normal menu bar is is full of other buttons etc.

Samsung phones have a physical menu button they have to use.
This is the correct answer. The three dots only appear if the device doesn't have a physical menu button. You can however put the menu items on the action bar itself with Activity.AddMenuItem3.
