Set minifyEnabled false in debug block in build.gradle file.

After re-creating the application using Eclipse and observing the correct behavior, I returned to Android Studio in order to check if there is any option that I missed.

and it didn’t work.

All I did in the end to make it work was Ctrl+Shift++. That is the shortcut for expanding all code blocks. I just ran the project after that and it worked.
