    I have placed screenshots for the Q10 and Classic side by side to compare the UI. While they both have the same resolution of 720 x 720, the developers at BlackBerry took into account the larger display of the Classic and reworked some of the elements of the UI to fit more content on the screen at once. This will be a nice improvement for those users that criticized the Q10 for this.

    Q10 Vs Classic - UI Comparison (Pictures)-q10_classic_screens.jpg

    This change should be across the whole BB10 UI as you can tell with elements like the title and action bar having each been trimmed down about 10 or so pixels vertically. Some of the fonts have also come down in size. For the example of the device monitor, the results are more list items being shown and 4 icons now in the action bar instead of 3.

    These are minor changes that can make a big improvement in everyday use. You'll also notice the Classic uses a light theme rather than dark which means it will have the LCD display. This is a welcome change for me since I appreciate the color reproduction and viewing angles of the IPS.

    Thanks to DYLANHABKIRK (Channel C0001DB0D) for working with DTBlackBerry and giving us the insight and images for the Classic.

    I put the little comparison together real quick. The Classic screen grab is from DYLANHABKRIK's channel and it's from DTBlackBerry's Classic. I don't have the device myself.

    What's up with the light blue title bar?
    It looks like a change with 10.3.1. I'm not sure if I like it either compared to what is already there on 10.3. It's more distinguishable though.

    I'm quite sure that means it's selected with the Classic's trackpad. It's the same blue colour as on a different screenshot that showed a selected icon on the app screen.

    When you use the trackpad, the highlighted part shows what the "mouse" is on

    That makes a lot of sense. I didn't even think of that, thanks!

    UMM.....why is the q10 display only uses 1.1% of the battery, while q20 its almost 10%. Does this mean that the old screen is more efficient?

    I think that those are totally different uses from each other. The 17% usage ge might have been from a few hours of gaming.

    Can't say classic will have higher consumption based on two random screen shots.

    Having said that it very well likely will use more juice because it is a bigger screen.

    Good thing its going to have a much bigger battery too!

    That isn't the display you're looking at on the Classic, that's the standby usage.

    Just saw that, nice catch! I sure hope it's LCD/IPS!
    It's been confirmed a while ago that it's LCD on DHabkirk's channel

    That classic is running a very early build of 10.3.1 so it is not optimised fully

    10.3.1.209 to be exact - super early compared to the 10.3.1.7** builds currently in testing.
