How to download and set your Android wallpapers

Let’s start by telling you how all of this works. You’ll need to click on the device and download the full wallpaper from the page you’re redirected to. Transfer your wallpaper to your phone using something like Google Drive, sending yourself an email, or sending the file over USB or Bluetooth. Once you have your wallpaper on your phone, follow the steps below to set it as your wallpaper.

How to set a wallpaper:

  1. Press and hold on to any empty space on your home screen.
  2. Select Wallpaper & style.
  3. Pick Change wallpaper.
  4. Go into My photos.
  5. Find the wallpaper you’ve downloaded and pick it.
  6. You’ll now be able to modify and move the wallpaper to your preferred position. You can also choose to have a different home screen and lock screen wallpapers.
  7. Make your choices and hit the checkmark button.

Note: We came up with these steps using a Pixel 4a 5G running Android 12. Keep in mind that each phone operates a little differently, so the steps might be different on your device.

Razer Android wallpapers

Razer only released a couple of phones: the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2. Both were pretty good, but the gaming giant has moved away from the mobile market. They kept all their wallpapers available for you to download straight from the official website, though! These are very fun wallpapers, especially if you’re into the gaming aesthetics the brand is so well-known for.
