Say I am reading a paper with a PDF reader on a tablet and I get to

... the second inequality follows from Lemma 3.2 ...

and I click on the text "Lemma 3.2" to jump to Lemma 3.2. Now that I reminded myself of what Lemma 3.2 was, I need to go back to the page I was reading before the jump.

In case of Adobe Reader which I am using on my phone, the physical back button (which I believe corresponds to the system back button) simply gets me to the recent files list.

Is there a way to navigate back after an inter-page jump in a PDF reader?

ezPDF Reader (free trial, pro) supports this.

Assuming you have a table of contents (TOC), clicking on a chapter link will take you to a page far from the TOC. If you click on the button with "a page and left arrow" icon (encircled below), it will take you back to the TOC.

From the (now deleted) OP's comment,

I found that Adobe Reader on Android actually has "go back" feature; after I jump to Lemma 3.2, the reader displays a new button which is for "go back". I guess I didn't try jump before because I was not expecting such a button to be created on the fly like that.
