I have HTC One X while my friend has Samsung Galaxy S2. In some Apps like Google Chrome in my phone the Overflow menu icon (three vertical dots) are visible while on SGS2 they are not.

In my HOX I have set the setting of "Recent apps button" to "Press for menu, press and hold for recent apps". So when I press recent apps button it shows the menu, so the menu icon should be hidden, right?

Why is the menu icon visible on HTC One X and not on Samsung Galaxy S2?

Appears to be a bug. The "Make the recent apps button act like a menu button" setting appears to not be changing the appropriate values to inform apps that a permanent menu button exists and thus apps act as if it doesn't have the menu button.

ViewConfiguration is what handles that.
