how to view larger thumbnails when importing to Lightroom CC

I've recently begun importing into Lightroom cc instead of classic so that I can take advantage of the cloud storage and have raw files everywhere. However, I can't find a way to enlarge the thumbnails in the add photos screen. With classic, you are able to select individual images before importing and view them larger which is really helpful when comparing two similar photos for which one is sharper. I really don't want to have to import every picture on my card in order to decide if its sharp enough to keep. is there a command or option in settings to allow this that I am overlooking? thanks.

You can vote here as a feature request:

Lightroom CC: Ability to view full size photos or grid when importing | Photoshop Family Customer Community

Yes, the import dialog is basic at best.

It seems that feature has not yet been included in the VERY new version 1.1

If Adobe waited to release Lr CC until it satisfied every users wish list, it would not be released until around 2022

What I've been doing is opening the card in Windows/uploading the whole card to a RAW dropbox file. Then I go from there, identify photos I want to keep and move only those into Lightroom CC. I am not keeping all my photos in CC either. WAY too little storage and I pay for other storage so...

While in the import window, you can just press 'e' on your keyboard (shortcut for 'expand/enlarge') and the photo will become larger.  Then, you can use the shortcut 'p' to select a photo and 'x' to deselect a photo. (I'm not sure which version of Lightroom I'm using...)

The new CC isn't made for professionals so most of the important features are missing.

And this is definitely good way to make money, because you can't enlarge pics before importing so you end up uploading all pics to cloud. Soon you'll be buying more cloud space. Or like me changing to Capture One.

Deal breaker.  It wouldn't be if Classic would be more modern.

The real reason why Adobe hasn't implemented the feature is that they don't exist for the good of consumer...they exist to milk the consumer for all they're worth...in this case selling cloud storage space that wouldn't be necessary if their tools were better designed/featured. What's the link?  By not making it easy to sort out which photos you should import with an "Enlarge" preview (which, we know, wouldn't be hard to implement), customers import more photos than they need to to avoid throwing away potentially good ones.  Thus using more storage, giving Adobe more money.  It's little things like this that have made me cancel my CC subscription..hundreds of little sleazy details that add up,
