    Why does it have to be that large? It could be easily at 20% of what it is today and stay usable.

    I'm on Q10 so every pixel matters.

    Thoughts?

    It's mostly the splash screens inside it.

    sys.uri.bbhub.bar, that is.

    Not sure if you're talking about the hub sidebar, though I think you are. If so, you are aware of the fact you have the option to fully open the hub, or to just see the icons?

    I think the OP means the blue "Blackberry Hub" bar at the top of the message list.

    If that's the one the OP means... I get it, though admittedly it doesn't really bother me.

    Doesn't bother me it only takes away about one message which I can scroll to seamlessly. It's also about the same size a the bar that let's you know who you're messaging inside of the text message window

    For people with a Q10 it definitely is an issue since it takes up like a fifth of the screen. It is however a menu button to bring down filters in the main Hub, as well as a button to show contact details and such.

    I agree with the OP... the blue bar could probably be 50% thinner.

    As for whether or not this is a "valid" complaint... it's a forum. People can post whatever opinions they want. I guess that also means that others can also challenge the validity of that opinion! So never mind!

    Looks just fine to me, I think the OP is nit picking at stupid ****. Why change the look of the OS because "it's to big", hah and that's what she said

    It could definitely be less tall to provide improved visibility.

    Perhaps, instead of changing it's size it could be made to scroll out of the view when you scroll down and reappear when you scroll up.

    This way you'd keep all of the functionality but also gain a lot of screen real estate when looking for something.

    Maybe 50% decrease or perhaps bigger screen on the next Q.

    I never saw it before as a issue but now that the OP brought it up, I can see their point. On the q10 real estate is prime so it should just roll nicely away into a thin bar or similar. I know kris and others are rolling over this but small UI changes can be just as important.

    I have thought this from the beginning.

    Also changing the font size should reduce the size of the other elements as well to show more. If you increase the size they get larger so why not when you reduce the font?

    This bar is too big, its like filling Internet Explorer with tool bars and I want more screen space not a bar the size of 1/5 of my screen. The web browser suffers the same fate each menu bar is too large leaving a small space for the content to get through. Drives me nuts! The could have made some of the menu bars smaller for the Q10 as it does have a much smaller screen.

    Agree that the bar is too big, but there is something more annoying to me, that is the left black bar not being fixed, I want it always there!!!
