My Device: Simulator !!!
My Carrier: 8608800458

My app looks different in Simulator vs. Z10 Device. Why?

I'm seeing some differences in how the screens look on the latest simulator (BB10_1_X.1720) vs. on my Z10 device. Now granted my Z10 is on BB vs Simulator:, so not sure if that has anything to do with it.


Did they even update the Android runtime on the simulator?


The differences are not huge but significant. I'm seeing some diffs in textfields sizes and image alignments in one of my screens (TableLayout with TableRows and text/images in each row). On device everything is fine, on simulator some images are getting pushed off screen slightly and cropped. 


Let me know if you have any differences or if you know the reason for this.


FYI: The main reason I'm even building a new version is because a user reported a problem with one screen on a Q10, even though my previous simulator had it looking fine. New simulator shows closer to what user is seeing but it is not exact.
