BlackBerry 10 Simulator and Porting Android App

Hello,  I am currently trying to port my android application over to the BlackBerry 10.  I have downloaded everything I need and am working on editing my image resources to conform to the BlackBerry 10 platform. 


The problem I am having is that When I use the BlackBerry Z10 simulator everything looks great, the sizes of all images are perfect and they are crisp, however when I use the Q10 simulator my Images are distored, fuzzy and scaled up.  I have tried changing the sizes, PPI, image extension and I just don't know what else to do.   Technically shouldn't the images be the same as the Z10?.   If anybody has any suggestion or fixes I would be very appreciative

Try the latest simulator which can run in either Z10 size or Q10 size.

Also, if you have separate folders for different screen densities for your drawables, then that could be the issue. Not sure though since I thought Q10 and Z10 are both xhdpi, but maybe Q10 is just hdpi??
