462 Mobile ‘Navigation Menu’ Examples

with UX annotations by Baymard researchers

What’s this? Here you’ll find 462 “Mobile: Navigation Menu” full-page screenshots annotated with research-based UX insights, sourced from Baymard’s UX benchmark of 93 e-commerce sites. (Note: this is less than 1% of the full research catalog.)

During usability testing we consistently observe that mobile navigation is particularly difficult for users. When designing a mobile navigation it will often have to deviate significantly from the desktop mega drop-down. Most often the mobile menu is by default collapsed and hidden behind a ‘3-bars’ ‘hamburger’ icon. One particular pitfall most sites struggle with is a mobile menu design that can both allow users to access the broad parent category pages while also allowing users to go deep into the sub-subcategory levels.
