I think that we should add the button for all devices 5.0+. The standard navigation bar layout doesn't include MENU button any more and new MMA UI will not hide the menu too.

It is also weird to put visibility of MENU to MENU - because it become inaccessible when user disables it.

I also suggest to include it to 1.2.0 or 1.2.1 as it is simple and might be quite annoying on some devices...2.0 will use different design.

Considering that the problem already occurs on 2 devices, we should include this in 1.2.0. I agree with Marek that no settings are required.

So I was wrong. Material design can work with MENU button too.

I have found out that it is a known bug only on OnePlus devices. So we can workaround it and show it always only on OnePlus devices. Otherwise, there is system function that should work fine for other devices.

Btw. long press of WINDOW button behaves like old MENU button too. But in this case: the three dots icon has to be displayed. This icon is hidden only if PERMANENT MENU BUTTON is available.

I asked for log so we can identify the OnePlus devices and show the menu.

Apparently this issue affects some other devices as well e.g. Polaroid A4.

This complicates things because it means that there we'd have to identify every device that has this problem. Unfortunately, Peke's original idea of:
 [ ] Always show menu button

probably wouldn't work, because the user wouldn't have access to the menu in order to enable it!

It is fixed in build 605 for OnePlus devices

But it us really hard to fix it when it depends on system function that is not reliable for some devices.

Btw we use this method:

To make things easier to access things like these I was wondering if we could add ABOUT dialog to TAP on MMA Icon on Main Screen.

That would also speed up log sending?
