With real depth control, a floating camera and the ability to change how far away the viewpoint is from the planet, Unreal Space HD allows you to create your ideal live wallpaper with some stunning 3D assets. Watch asteroid whizz past detailed planet rings and lens flares on your homescreen as you move from panel to panel. Take a look at the trailer below for a little more info.

How it Works: Before you get started, you need to download Unreal Space HD from the Play Store. After that, simply select the live wallpaper from the list on you device as you would with anything else.

Opinion: Being an editor for a technology site, it’s no surprise have an interest in space and sci-fi in general. Unreal Space HD is a very nice looking live wallpaper, with some of the best 3D representations of space and planetary bodies I’ve seen in a long time. Fitting in well with Android 4.4 and pretty much any of today’s Android smartphones, there’s little to complain about here and it isn’t even too heavy on your CPU, keeping your performance much the same as it would be without running such a wallpaper.

Ratings

  • Speed (4/5) – I had no issues with Unreal Space HD and it ran quickly on my devices.
  • Features (4/5) – With a good variety of planets on offer (including mother Earth) there’s a lot of variety and even some settings to adjust to your taste.
  • Theme (5/5) – There’s no denying this a good-looking wallpaper and thanks to the high-resolution nature here, the planets and 3D movement really pops on the best displays out there.
  • Overall (4/5) – A great wallpaper for those that have an interest in space and that sort of thing will really like Unreal Space HD on their device, and it also works great on tablets, too.

Pros

  • Good variety of planets on offer to spruce up your smartphone or tablet.
  • 3D movement and floating camera gives you a better look at the planets, and keeps things fresh over time on your homescreen.
  • Easy to setup and easy to tweak, Unreal Space HD has a number of settings you can adjust to your liking.
  • Doesn’t have too much of an effect on your overall performance, or battery life.

Cons

  • Lots of other similar wallpapers out there like this.

Conclusion: While not entirely original, Unreal Space HD is one of the better-looking live wallpapers to bring 3D planets to our homescreens and does so with modern, up-to-date technologies. With little effect on how your smartphone or tablet performs, there’s no need to worry about this being a resource hog and Unreal Space HD should fit in nicely with the way you use your device.
