    You're asking for a lot. People had issues with the old one. There will be no option to revert. BlackBerry made the right decision here. You'll upgrade eventually.

    Posted with my Q10!
    Might as well do it now then later or you'll be on the same OS......forever.

    It's about useability. I know someone that had issues with the old call screen. Had issues answering calls. Missing the touch target.

    She has no issues with the new one. So evidently BlackBerry found the old call screen while unique, cool, and logical, was not as easy for the average person to use. And thus a source of frustration that might have led to returned devices.

    I'll never use the text reply features. If I don't want to answer, I don't want to answer. Leave a VM. I'll see that you called. Sometimes I just don't want to talk to the person who is calling. Should I set up a "I don't want to talk to you right now, kindly foxtrot oscar" auto-reply?
    So selfish.
    Some features that you don't like doesn't mean the other don't need it too.
    Stop act like a crybaby.

    I'm curious, why do you need buttons like "attachment" and "importance" while you're half way through composing an email? Can't you attach a file when you're done typing?
    Maybe I just wanna attach a file and be done with it.

    My wife hated the old screen and struggled for some reason with it, she only mentions loving the new call screen from the upgrade, pretty sure she hasn't noticed anything else lol. I like it too, it's more one thumb friendly at the bottom.

    I did like the old one a lot but oh well, the new one is good too and not upgrading because of this is dumb, 10.2.1 has so many improvements, picture password alone in my opinion makes it worth it...

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

    If you hold the phone with one hand and answer/reject the call with a finger from your other hand, it's OK.

    If you hold the phone with one hand and answer it with the thumb of that same hand, the up/down bar was easier, at least on the Z10.

    That and the new thing is a cheap android rip off.

    Just bring back facial recognition to the camera. I never had it to begin with as I got my phone the day before the latest OS update and it had been updated from my provider before I picked it up. Facial recognition seems like it would be cool. Don't know why they would remove that.

    As for the op's opinion, I can see both sides of the call screen argument but the new one isn't that bad. I just hate it that contacts with photos are blown up so much to fill the screen that they end up looking all grainy and fuzzy.

    The Z30 rocks. Now if they can bring the Twitter app out of the stone age, modernize it and actually make the notifications work my life would be complete. Lol.... no but seriously :/

    apparently the camera would recognize faxes in images and automatically apply focus points on the faces

    BB didn't remove the gesture itself, they only added the option to use on-screen prompts to go forward and backward one message. These prompts are optional, but the gesture is still in-tact either way.

    They are 'dumbing' things back down because it keeps causing 'think-points' for new users or those migrating from BB7 and below. They're working to re-capture elementary features of BBOS that BB10 is missing so they don't continue to alienate prospective users.

    They obviously changed it not just for the sake of change. I'm pretty sure far more people who have never used BlackBerry 10 are able to answer the phone without much problem after this change. In terms of ergonomics it is much better without the vertical thumb waving to reject call. It's so much easier to answer and reject with the new one as the slider is at the bottom of the screen where your thumb lies most of the time handling a phone. It is fundamentally sound, sorry it doesn't look as "cool" as it was before but in terms of usability clearly to me it is better. Also remember how on legacy BlackBerry devices have the answer call button on the left side of the phone well this new call screen maps that layout and it makes sense to ease the transition. They did a lot of things right with this and it is easy to use for anybody
