Sponsored App Review: Christmas Day HD Wallpaper

December 15, 2013 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: Christmas Day HD Wallpaper is just what you expect, a Live Wallpaper that hopes to channel that Christmas warmth and sentiment and put into the smartphone in your pocket. With HD assets and true 3D graphics, this is a modern Live Wallpaper that anyone who loves Christmas will really enjoy. There’s a whole lot of settings that can be changed and there’s a lot on offer for those looking for something to spice up their Android smartphone or tablet at this time of year. Certainly, this is a seasonal Live Wallpaper but, like a good set of Christmas Tree decorations, it can be used year after year. Take a look at the trailer below for a little taste of the scene:

How it Works: To bring that Christmas feel to your Android device, you need to first download the Live Wallpaper from the Play Store and then apply it like you would any other wallpaper. From there you get the usual preview, or you can take a look at the settings.

For those that like to configure their Live Wallpapers, this will please, as there’s a lot on offer and you can even change how certain parts of the wallpaper look and feel.

As for the Wallpaper itself, Christmas Day HD moves with your homescreen as you page-to-page, revealing one more screen of the overall Christmas theme. Each time you swipe, you’re given a different view of this beautiful Christmas scene. My favorite is the snowman:

But the view of the Robin nesting away from the cold is also very Christmassy and you can even change how it looks in the settings. No matter which screen you come to though, you’ll get a taste of Christmas thanks to the decorated house, the snowfall, the Christmas lights and the decorated tress.

Opinion: While this is obviously a seasonal wallpaper, it’s similar to the way in which we decorate our houses and perfect our Christmas trees every year so, why not do the same with our smartphones and tablets that are now such large parts of our lives? This will especially be fun for those little ones with tablets but, to brighten up any adult’s day with a little good will during the 9 to 5 grind in these last weeks coming up to Christmas will be welcome. With a lot of settings on offer to make sure your battery life is taken care of, and your wallpaper is just how you like it, Christmas Day HD ticks the right boxes. It’s not a free live wallpaper but, a lot of work has gone into this and it’s a small fee to pay at this time of year, especially for something that offers a complete package as this does.

Ratings

  • Speed (4/5) – Depending on your device, Christmas Day HD will run brilliantly on your device but, you can always change the settings to speed things up a bit.
  • Features (5/5) – If you’re looking for a Christmas Live Wallpaper, then this is the one to get as it’s high quality and offers a lot of settings to change and adjust.
  • Theme (5/5) – With 3D graphics and HD assets, there’s a lot on offer from Christmas Day HD and it really does instill the charm of Christmas time.
  • Overall (5/5) – It’s not often that a seasonal live wallpaper like this comes along but, you might find yourself using it this year and then using it even earlier next year!

Pros

  • Good-looking HD and 3D graphics really help set the mood.
  • Lots of settings to tweak if you’re using a lower-end device, assuring a decent experience for everyone.
  • Battery-life impact not too bad, and you can scale it back if need be.
  • Adorable snowman and traditional snow scene is familiar and very good-looking.

Cons

  • More than one theme would be nice.
  • Might not perform well on lower-end or older hardware.

Conclusion: Christmas Day HD is one of the better Live Wallpapers for this time of year. If you enjoy live wallpapers and you’re not some sort of grinch at Christmas time, then this sort of thing will put a smile on your face. Overall, it’s easy to take to and there’s nothing that really detracts from the overall experience. There aren’t any ads and all of the settings are unlocked, making the one-off fee a fair price. Christmas Day HD offers users a lot of Christmas charm just in time for the holidays and you can of course, use it again next year – just like your favorite Angel at the top of your tree.
