We are still a few days away from HTC’s unveiling of the HTC 10, but since when has that ever stopped the Android community from getting their hands on the goodies? In the latest release of intel, a well known HTC leaker has published a gathering of wallpapers that will be included on the HTC 10. In my own personal opinion, they are way better than anything you will ever find on Samsung device, so here’s your chance to rock them before the phone is even announced. (more…)
Maybe it’s because our personal devices have been featured more than ever lately, with reviews up for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, along with a deeper look at the G5, but we have been getting an unusually high number of inquiries over the wallpapers we have been using. Because we would hate to leave your beautiful home screens hanging, we figured the best way to answer all of those interested, was through a post.
So, here we go, these are the wallpapers we are using and where you can find them. (more…)
Want the Android N wallpaper that you keep seeing all over our devices today? Well, we have it for you below in its full 2880×2560 resolution. Yep, it’s a big one. It’s also the only new one, so don’t worry about finding the rest – this is it.
Thanks to a forum member who goes by the nick JK Shine (get it?) over at SamMobile, we supposedly have the wallpapers for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. There are 13 in total and they certainly look a lot like Galaxy S wallpapers we have seen in the past. They all feature those sort of swooping brush stroke, sea-ish, futuristic jellyfish designs that we have grown accustomed to with Samsung phones. They also tossed in a couple of Material Design friendly options.
And yes, the wallpaper you are seeing in the renders above, that hilariously looks like a “6” even though these phones are of the S7 line, is included. (more…)
Waaaaay back in October, we featured an app called Backdrops, a wallpaper app with a Material Design focus that was pushing out daily ‘papers, collections, the ability to share your own with the app’s community, and an incredibly clean appearance. It’s a really nice wallpaper app.
This week, the team behind it released a big update that introduces Google sign-in, so you can now sync your favorites across all of your devices. This is one of those features that multi-device owners will surely appreciate. While unrelated in content form, this was my reason for switching to ParcelTrack for package tracking. Device sync is a big deal, especially as many of us migrate from device to device, whether that’s between personal devices only or work and personal. (more…)
UPDATE 12/10: Verizon, this morning, told us that starting tomorrow, December 11, fans can create special Turbo 2 Star Wars edition phones using Moto Maker. Options will include “custom color palates, and backs based on the Poe Dameron, Rey, BB-8, a First Order Storm Trooper, and Kylo Ren characters.” Verizon will also launch an app to Google Play with exclusive wallpapers.
UPDATE: We now have pictures of the Star Wars editions below.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening in days, it only makes sense that Verizon and Motorola would use their DROID licensing to its full potential. In the coming days, Verizon and Moto will launch DROID Turbo 2 “Star Wars Editions”with 5 Verizon-exclusive wallpapers. (more…)
Over the weekend, shortly after posting up the latest in “hot” icon packs, I started looking for the last time we did a “Show off your home screens day!” As it turns out, it’s been well over a year, which is kind of shocking. It’s not like we stopped customizing phones in 2015, so I’m not sure what took us so long to get one of these together. Either way, it’s a home screen day today! (more…)
Apologies are needed for our lack of icon and wallpaper posts in recent weeks, but when you have 65 phones to review, getting all custom with our home screens often takes a back seat. With that said, Backdrops is a brand new wallpaper app that is worth a look because of its selection, design, and approach to getting social with phone prettiness. (more…)
