HTC Sense 5 wallpapers, wallpapers, 18 gorgeous wallpapers! Who wants them? Do you want one? And you? Wallpapers for everybody!

Thanks to some quick thinking of an enterprising xda-developers forum member loan92, who used his charm and boyish good looks to distract HTC employees from his sneaky actions at an event in Italy, we have eighteen beautiful wallpapers the company bundled with the upcoming One flagship.

For your convenience, I've mirrored them to an imgur gallery where they can be viewed using the widget below. If you just want all of them, as a zip archive, proceed to our mirror or hit up the source link.

Use the button at the top right corner of the widget to download full-sized images

Thanks, Leon!

    That's what passes for gorgeous these days?

      I agree but it makes for a better headline than "18 Nice Enough HTC Sense 5 Wallpapers"

      I really enjoyed their style. In my book, they're pretty gorgeous.

    Unfortunately they're the wrong aspect ratio for most Android devices. Because you want it needs to slide left and right with the home screen, they need to be wider.

      Unfortunately, you're right, but that's all we got so far.

      However, there's a solution, kind of - you can use this technique to cut out your own scrollable wallpaper and use that, especially since the resolution is so high: https://plus.google.com/100135665583930787672/posts/Qsxbxe1Hsnu. I believe that's a capability in stock Android.

      Use application 'image 2 wallpaper' from play store in order to have the entire image as your wallpaper - without having to crop it for the scrolling homescreen.

    The stock wallpaper switcher on Android is TERRIBLE.
    Like seriously, it is the single worst component of the entire OS.
    It is the only thing about Android that frustrates me to no end.
    It is so damn unintuitive that you have to go out of your way to have the image cropped the way you want for your background.
    Several other manufacturers do it the right way, you get a single box that you can resize however you see fit and have it cover any part of the image you want.
    With this stock nonsense, they for some reason give you that stupid, separate landscape box that gives you that awkward cross shape, making it literally impossible to have certain parts of the wallpaper as a part of the background.
    They need to fix this badly.

      This is fixed in 4.2. You can choose and aspect ratio you want. And choose portrait mode.

        Huh? How has it been fixed?

        I'm running stock 4.2.2 on my N4 and the wallpaper cropper is the same as it's been in the past.

        • TylerChappell

          He lies. Just checked on my Nexus 7 and yeah it is still the same.

            download PicSpeed Wallpapers app, version 3.0.9. It will let you set wallpaper without that stupid stock cross thing. After installing just go to you gallery, and change your wallpaper like you usually do but choose to change it via picspeed. Also make sure it's the old version as the new one 'upgraded' to the cross crop

            Yup, you guys are right, I was using Nova launcher and didn't realize it was different. My bad! :P

      • Bleakvision

        Yeah, I would like to know this too. Can't figure it out :(

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000003849428 Matt Holbrook

          If you use Nova Launcher, it is fixed.
          Didn't realize stock wasn't the same.

    In the past, Imgur compressed uploaded images to reduce size. I recommend you guys re-download your imags and check the compare the file sizes. If they're smaller, then it's best you use a different host

      I have a premium imgur account that shouldn't do this, I believe.

    Stock wallpapers have never been that ugly. I really don't know why we still have stock wallpapers cause nobody is using that shit ... we have our custom wallpapers

  • spydie

    what a totally unimaginative bunch of tasteless wallpaper.

  • Cjp

    What about the live wallpapers?

  • Doobsky

    why are these not 2160x1920? Otherwise they could all be on zedge already

  • Avinash Panigrahy

    Thanks. Really needed them :)
