Power BI Screen Usage Comparison

Gilbert Quevauvilliers compares the original Power BI service UI to the new one in terms of how much of the screen is available to our dashboard rather than the service UI:

People were saying that whilst they like the look and feel, it appears to be taking up more real-estate screen space. As well as others preferring the tabs along the bottom like Excel does.

I took it upon myself to do a quick and possibly quite simple test to see if the new look and feel make the report page smaller or larger.

The result was a bit of a surprise to me.
