The choice of mobile phones is larger today than ever before and when you decide to buy a new one, you likely are looking for a phone that speaks to you. Naturally, the unique design isn’t the most important aspect of a phone, but it provides you the ability to express your personality and who you are.
On the other hand, if you’re currently stuck with your older phone and can’t afford a new one, you might think your options to customize the phone’s look are limited. Wallpaper apps are the first thing that came to our mind as a quick and easy way to “polish” your phone. Unfortunately, we found it a bit difficult to find good ones on Google Play and the App Store.
But after a more persistent search, we stumbled upon a list of wallpaper apps that turned out to be quite helpful. We’ll share the link if you want to check.
To make your job even easier, we wrote a couple of tips to help you out.
1. Choosing a wallpaper that fits your device
You would probably want to choose HD wallpapers for your mobile that not only looks great but is also popular and highly rated. They are usually made for specific brands of devices, so it’s always best to check if the wallpaper that you download is compatible to your device. This is more so in the case of a GIF wallpaper. Luckily, with Apps such as Zedge, you will not have to worry about incompatibilities anymore as it clearly suggests prior to downloads. It would provide suggestions based on your preferences which you can then be easily downloaded on to your device.
Alternatively, if you want to download desktop backgrounds, you can browse through Apps that have HD wallpapers that are high resolution. These are very likely to be clear and look stunning on your desktop too.
2. Match the wallpaper to the current season
With so many wallpapers now available, you are very likely to be spoilt for choice. One way to get around this issue is to ensure the background matches the current season (eg: autumn, winter) or any upcoming holidays such as Christmas.
Some apps such as Backgrounds HD can help you easily navigate through various trending categories making it easier for you to choose. If you are still stuck for choice, just simply browse through each category that might interest you, and you will find certain ones that match your taste.
3. Express your mood with a matching background
If you need a way to express your style or current mood, one way to go about it would be through your phone background. For example, if you’re in the mood for some humor, you could upload a wallpaper with a funny quote. Alternatively, if you are stressed out, you might want a background wallpaper that helps calm you down – flying doves in a white background in this case.
Fortunately, there are apps that can detect your mood based on a series of questions that would then make appropriate suggestions. Either way, if you want your phone to continuously set a wallpaper that matches your mood, it would be best to use a wallpaper app that does just that.
