I think it's because visual spec is vague and ambiguous as regards the RWD breaks.

In page [1], navigation should be icon only in W830.
In page [2], navigation is still showing icon + text in W830.

I've confirmed that the current implementation will adjust the navigation (hide text) as soon as the width reaches 830px.

Hani, I'm going to close this issue due to spec issue. Note that you might find the real situation will be slightly different with spec across platforms because of extra scrollbar. For instance, Windows has an obvious scrollbar which will affect the content width, so I think it's okay to ignore this kind of issue. 

Helen, can you help us fix the visual spec? Thanks

Per discussion with Helen, the visual spec is correct and W830 is the break point to hide the navigation text. However, from the visual designer's point of view, this is a minor and ignorable issue due to merely 1px difference. (Ideally, the text should be hide in W829px rather than W830px). As a result, it shouldn't be an issue. Thanks
