    So I made a simple test with reflection probes and it reflects off the car but When I make it into an android app it doesn't reflect anything Does reflection Probe work for mobile and if yes is it that my phone is old and cant run it its the Samsung galaxy s3 Does that have something to do about or is there something else if there are certain steps I need to do that would be great because this is really bothering me

    Are you using baked or realtime reflection probes? Baked probes should always work (although I have not explicitly checked Mali 400). Realtime probes are a known issue on many OpenGL ES 2 devices like your Mali 400. They should work when using OpenGL ES 3.
    Note that realtime reflections are also disabled in the default quality settings for Android.

    I can confirm reflection probes don't work on Android either way nor baked nor realtime.

    That's odd, I tried them today on various devices :(. Can you file a bug report with repro project?

    Samsung S7 on Unity 2017.3.1p4, one realtime reflection probe in the scene, works on the editor but not on the mobile device. Any workarounds yet?

    I had same problem. and i found a way.
    You have to see the head row of quality table. It shows Devices (PC and Android).
    One green cell of column is default quality setting for each Device.
    For android, Medium is green.
    So, click 'Medium' line. Then below setting tables is changed. turn on 'Realtime Reflection Probes' item. and you can see you want.

    You must also set Pixel Light Count to at least 1.

    From my personal experience, Realtime reflections definitely works on android in URP, but it doesn't seem to work in standard pipeline (don't know if I'm missing some checkboxes somewhere or is it simply not supported on android)
