LG shows how it made the V30 wallpapers in behind-the-scenes video

Here’s a question: last time you bought a new phone, did you pay any attention to its stock wallpaper? Chances are you didn’t — either you’re the type of person who immediately changes it to something of their own liking, or the one which couldn’t care less about something as superficial as a wallpaper.

That, however, hasn’t stopped companies’ in-house design teams from pouring hours of work into devices’ wallpapers — after all, they’re the de facto face of a device across most of its marketing materials, which makes them pretty important, …

Hey kids, have you ever dreamed of browsing the web on your Nintendo 64 while waiting for the cassette deck to finish recording your friend’s hot new mixtape (that features 45 minutes of a 56k modem having a seizure with Windows 95 sounds playing in the background)? No?

30+ beautiful high-res wallpapers, perfect for your Galaxy S8/S8+, Pixel XL, LG G6, HTC 10, and others

High-resolution, and high-quality wallpapers are not the easiest thing to find, especially if you have as many as 1440 x 2560 pixels to fill with information – as would be the case if your smartphone has a QHD display.

The reasons for that are several. Perhaps most importantly, however, it’s just exceedingly easy for wallpaper repositories to simply upscale lower resolution content to make it appear as if it would fit perfectly on your fancy screen, but the reality is that stretching the image takes a ton from the quality. And that’s not what you want if you’re looking to …

Google Wallpapers now offers new categories, more new wallpapers

Google Wallpapers is not one of Google’s most popular Android apps, but the company is certainly committed to making it better and more useful. Not long after the app was updated with new wallpapers (plus UI enhancements and bug fixes), it’s been discovered that it now contains two completely new wallpaper categories: Art, and Solid Colors.

Art mostly includes cool patterns and digital art, while Solid Colors is – yep, you’ve guessed it – the place to go if you just need simple, solid color wallpapers. The addition of these new categories isn’t mentioned in any change log. Nevertheless, …
