      Good night, sweet iGoogle. We hardly knew ye.

    • Da Boss

    • Biba Nishima

      Romain Guy's picture isn't it?

      I used another plugin that gave me a low res pic for my google homepage. Thx bro.

  • MLBaylor

    I somehow dont like any of them...

    • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

      Ditto. The only one I've ever liked is the default Jellybean background.

  • Andrew Kachaniwsky

    Wonder why this doesn't have all the wallpapers but only a chunk of them?

  • Zyre

    Can someone link me the 5 wallpaper? I mean the one where to different colors make it seem like there is a 5 in it.

    • Cesar

      Would this happen to be the one you're looking for? http://mycolorscreen.com/wp-content/uploads/wallpapers_2012/294161/2.jpg

      • Zyre

        Yes is that the official wallpaper?

        • Cesar

          I'm not sure, but it definitely looks like the one used in the pictures on the Google Play Store.

        • Stacey Liu

          No it isn't, and I'm pulling my hair out trying to find it. There are way too many mockups.

        • Stacey Liu

          You know what? Ignore my last post. I extracted the official one from framework-res. Enjoy: http://postimg.org/image/egbz2n4nx/full/

          Don't use the disqus preview. It has been downscaled.

        My OCD can't stand the artifacts around the edges in that image (specifically if you zoom in). If you happen to come across a clear one without artifacts, could you let me know? :)

  • Brendan

    Is it just me or are these terrible?

  • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

    Nothing beats interfacelift.com ... with resolutions as high as 3840x2160 which allows for crops that scroll on vertical 1080p displays.

    • Aniket Patni

      Thanks for this link! Also check out http://www.unsplash.com
      Not FHD, but some really nice free to use stuff there.

  • Gandalf_Teh_Gray

    Could you post pics of the other 5?

  • Merri Mogridge

    The mountain is my favourite! Not too fond of any of the others though.

    • Dheeraj Chowdary Nekkanti

      Is that a Nexus 7? And Stark icon pack right? :D

      • Merri Mogridge

        Its a HTC Sensation XL and the icon pack is Cardstock :)

        • Dheeraj Chowdary Nekkanti

          Oh wow! Icons are kinda small?

          • Merri Mogridge

            Yeah I have the dock icons set to 70% size in ADW! I think it looks nicer :)

          • Ray Gray

            Adw wow haven't used that launcher since gingerbread

  • andy_o

    Any new live wallpapers?

  • Aniket Patni

    These wallpapers are fairly crappy :(
    I wish they had blurred out wallpapers. Yes, like iOS. Except that users on android used them long before iOS did. Just look at Mycolorscreen.
    Damn you, Apple. Making nice stuff so mainstream that noone else can use it :(

  • Crispin Swickard

    with some hue/saturation adjustments some of these defaults might look pretty nifty.. as is however... Meh.

  • Zhelyazko Atanasov
  • Babs Oyed

    These don't look that good. Will not be downloading them.

  • Cesar

    I actually like the one with the circles and the warm colors. I might use the mountains at some point too. The rest are kind of "meh" though.

  • ElfirBFG

    This is the one I liked best.

    • ElfirBFG

      Downvotes 'cause I'm forever trapped on ICS? Thanks guys... T_T

      • Mkvarner

        Custom ROM.

        • ElfirBFG

          If you find one for the Sharp SH06D, you let me know.

          • http://seapip.com/ Thomas Gladdines

            I once saw a few on japanese forums but it's hard to read those forums and google them >.>

          • Mkvarner

            I give up, get a Nexus 5 ASAP :)

          • ElfirBFG

            I like the 5, but I think I want to go back to Moto. Only Rogers carries the Moto X here in Canada though, so I'm going to: wait out my Bell contract, wait for the X's successor, or eBay one.

            Since I did a reset, the Sharp has run okay, so I'm not in a rush.

    • Cesar

      what kind of icons are these?

  • Hoggles

    Very ugly

  • Stacey Liu

    Where is the "5" wallpaper? I had it when I flashed stock KitKat, but Google restored my old wallpaper after a reboot.

    It's in the wallpaper picker, but it doesn't let you edit its position from there. It only lets you do that from Gallery. I want to position it so the green part doesn't show. That's how it is stock, but for some reason, when you reapply it, it changes.

  • Stacey Liu

    Here is the official stock "5" wallpaper: http://postimg.org/image/egbz2n4nx/full/

    The number of fake mockups is too damn high.

    Don't use the disqus preview image. It's downsized. Use the actual link.

  • Mike S.

    Here's the mountain image in full resoulution (5616 x 3744)


    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      It's quite a bit different if you compare them, besides the size. I'm guessing you took the original one from Romain Guy or something, and the one they shipped with KitKat is tweaked a bit (not that it matters - both versions look fine).

  • dsass600

    How do I set these without getting weird crops?

  • nicksdr

    i made a nexus 4 one

    • Chev Chelios

      I like what you have done here. Great wp for my Nexus 4! Thanks!

    • smokebomb

      Just put this on my nexus 4. Looks awesome.

  • Zyre

    Where was the 5 wallpaper hidding to be exact?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii


  • smeddy

    That last one, combined with weather screen live wallpaper, is the most beautiful of any of the 100s of LWPS I ever tried.

    Other great and batt friendly LWPs:
    ALIEN shapes Free
    Digital embers

  • kenjikenken

    I don't understand why the wallpapers with the #5 have artifacts all over, seems like every version of it I see has them :((

  • RitishOemraw

    Does anyone like the Trees wallpaper? I think it is ugly, but that is just my opinion, so what does the rest think? upvote if you dislike it, downvote if you like it (or just reply)

    • Guest

      I think what kills it is how they lit the trees with floodlights, and not very evenly, then they lever color corrected it to take out the yellowing from the lights.

      I messed around with it a little bit to remove the yellowing, it does look better. Some more even lighting would have imported the situation.

      • RitishOemraw

        nvm the coloring etc, the content/subject of the image is just not very appealing to me. I could take a perfect picture of my wall, but it is so not-interesting that I would never use it as my wallpaper (pun intended)

        • Crispin Swickard

          Fair enough. lol

          • RitishOemraw

            I wonder if a perfect picture of my wall could be used as actual wallpaper to make my wall look better.

            Sometimes a picture looks better than the original, so a perfect picture must look better right? So if I turn it into wallpaper and hang it on my wall would that improve the wall's aesthetics? If so, could I repeat the process until I get the perfect wall paper? :P

    • Crispin Swickard

      I don't know why it showed me as a guest on the other part, didn't show the attachment either..

  • Balvinder Makkar

    My nexus 4 got the kitkat..:p

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      This joke needs to be retired.

      • HolyFreakingCrap

        Foreign people were never told about the dead horse.

        • Jadephyre

          Yes they were, they just can't stop doing it ;)

  • Jeff

    All those are horrible

  • Luka Mlinar

    I gotz to wait for it to show up in the classified adds like 150 other places in the world.


    I'm looking for one I saw on an LG G2 review that doesn't appear to be part of the stock wallpapers, it's like a matrix or a segmented sphere like the sort that they have at world expos

  • :)

    much appreciated!

  • Matthew

    Does anyone know where u can find jpg of the original galaxy nexus wallpapers. I like a couple a lot and want to save the images as I can use them on a different phone. I haven't been able to find them on Google & I don't know what they're called.
