Wallpapers, or backgrounds, can liven up the look of your phone, putting favorite images on your home screen or lock screen. You can of course use your own photos as a background. If you do, pick images large enough that they won't appear stretched, boxy, or jagged.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I change to look of my apps too?
Besides changing the image on your lock screen or home screen, you can change the background on certain apps. Gboard (Android and iOS), for example, lets you pick a keyboard theme or add your background image, and Line lets you set wallpaper for chat windows.
What to look for in mobile wallpaper?
While the stock phone apps are fine, you can also download a wallpaper app to get a wider variety of landscapes, nature scenes, abstract images, textures, or cartoon characters. To keep things looking fresh, find an app that lets you automatically rotate images. Or use live, or animated, wallpaper to stay engaged.
