    I'm using an ace 4. The menu key (bottom left) shows recently used apps and not menu items. The home button (with a long press) doesn't show the recently used list but rather shows some kind of search screen with keyboard.

    What's going on? Shouldn't it be like my S4?

    Most importantly, how do I get my menu key to show menus?

    Thanks!

    It says it has android 4.4.4

    Try long press on the menu key to get a menu.

    Just tried that - it goes into screen edit mode.

    Did you get it rooted from someone?

    Long press on the multitasking (recent apps) button goes to menu on the SGS5 and Notes now - I guess I expected that on their other 2014 KitKat models.

    The phone is a friend's and he was given it as a xmas present so he doesn't know where it was bought from and if it has been rooted. Knowing his friends I think it is a new phone from EE (UK). It's 4.4.4

    My own phone is an S4 and it works as I expect (menus on menu key, recent apps list on long press of home key).

    There doesn't seem any way on his to call up the menus unless there is a separate icon on the apps.
