More detail in his face, eyes, hair. Not a lot as I said before but it’s a better version than the 4K SDR.

No worries, and yes, I know its the intro in Casino Royale, I kinda jumped around in that post. And the less grain was in QoS, not CR - Casino Royale is loaded with Grain (didn't mind it on the BD) and seems worse at points with a lot of added noise. BTW, I have not seen 4K/SDR versions of any except Spectre and that was actually worse than the BD too.
And I am usually the last person to compare UHDs to blu-rays but the different to me was so minimal I just had to pop in the 1080p BD to see what was going on. To me, while you are watching the movie in 4K/HDR, you shouldn't be able to pin-point small differences here and there... to me the entire experience should be uplifted by a wide margin and so far the format doesn't disappoint except a few mishaps here and there. This just hurts a bit more cuz its some of my fav. movies period.
If I was to rate these on PQ alone, 100 being highest for BD and UHD being 200 -
CR - 100 (at times its worse than BD, in very few instances, its better)
QoS - 130 (Grain has been cleaned up but no HDR)
Skyfall - 110 (Negligible upgrades if any)
I wonder if DV is better than the HDR10 version and if so, by how much.
