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. Don’t download the images you see below; these are compressed and optimized for faster web loading. You need to actually click on the download button and get the full files.

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 on Android:

  1. Launch the Settings app.
  2. Select Wallpaper & style.
  3. Pick More wallpapers.
  4. Go into My photos.
  5. Find the wallpaper you’ve downloaded and pick it.
  6. You can now modify and move the wallpaper to your preferred position.
  7. When ready, hit Set Wallpaper.
  8. Pick whether you want to set the wallpaper on your Home screen, Lock screen, or Home and lock screens.

Do we have any iPhone users around? You can also use any of these wallpapers on iOS! That’s the beauty of wallpapers. They are just images, and you can use them on any device.

How to set a wallpaper on iPhone:

  1. Launch the Settings app.
  2. Go into Wallpaper.
  3. Tap on Add New Wallpaper.
  4. Go into Photos.
  5. Select the image you downloaded.
  6. You can now slide left and right to change styles, pinch to crop, add widgets, edit the font, and more.
  7. When you’re done customizing, select Add.
  8. You can now tap on Set as Wallpaper Pair. Or you can opt to Customize Home Screen.

Note: We developed these steps using a Google Pixel 7 running Android 14 and an Apple iPhone 12 Mini running iOS 17. Keep in mind that each phone operates differently, so the steps might differ 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.

Samsung
