The digital era that we’re in is all about doing things differently and ripping the rulebook. The phone personalization trend started years ago and is still growing as we speak. Whether it’s a phone case, a pop socket, or moving wallpapers, we all like to express ourselves through our wearable tech.
We took a look at the state of smartphone wallpapers in 2022 so we can share some of the most exciting options available. Wave Live Wallpapers Maker 3D caught our eye as it offers exclusive designs and advanced features for Android live wallpapers, including a wallpaper maker feature. If you’re new to this trend, maybe it’s time to jump in their rife collection of animated backgrounds and 3D wallpapers and try some.
You might be using wallpapers to make your screens less boring, to boost your mood, or to send a nice visual message to someone. The message they’re often using is ‘Say it with a wallpaper’ which sounds like a cool idea, especially around special days. Instead of a simple ecard, you can send an animated wallpaper made by you, with a personalized message included if that’s your thing. If the person you send it to applies it on their smartphone background they will think of you, every time they use their phone.
Short 2022 trends overview on live wallpapers

Are live wallpapers safe for your battery?
This is probably one of the biggest concerns and the main reason why some people avoid using this type of phone personalization. It’s a bias leftover in our minds from the early live wallpapers’ era. Back in the days when our devices were not as strong and advanced as most Android phones are today.
So far, so good, devices and app developers have evolved and things are looking good.
Wave Live Wallpapers has hit the nail on the head to deliver an animated backgrounds app optimized for battery use. If you wonder what this means, the explanation is simple. The live wallpapers don’t run in the background when you joggle with other apps, or your screen is off. It only uses the same amount of battery life you need while watching a video, only while you are looking or interacting with the wallpaper. So if you don’t already have battery issues, you should be safe to start using live wallpapers.
