Q: I saw your article on how to change iPhone wallpaper. How can I change the wallpaper on my Android phone?
A: In Tech-Knowledgly: How to Set iPhone Wallpaper, I explained how you can set iPhone wallpaper. Setting wallpaper on an Android phone is easily done too. Wallpaper choices on Android phones are even more fun than on the iPhone because on Android phones you can have Live Wallpapers, meaning they are animated. Imagine fish swimming around in an Aquarium on your Android phone.
To change wallpaper on your Android phone, go into Camera and then press the picture on the lower right corner. This will show your photos on the phone. Pick the photo you want and press More in the lower right corner. Press “Set As” on the menu that appears, then choose Wallpaper. Go to your home screen and the photo will appear.
You can use your own photos or download wallpaper apps from the Android Market and the Amazon App Store. Lots of free wallpaper apps are available, including Live Wallpaper.
Be careful with Live Wallpaper. The animation of Live Wallpaper can drain your battery faster than streaming Netflix videos. If you discover that your battery can’t hold a charge very long and takes a long time to re-charge, you may want to consider going back to regular wallpaper.
