    Do you think iOS 6 will have live wallpapers?

    I personally hope not. Too resource wasting for something that doesn't really matter.

    ^This. Sure it'd look nice, but personally I'd rather have more resources for something else, not a moving wallpaper that's obstructed by icons anyways.

    it'd probably make the phone slower and consume more battery?

    Yeah, live wallpapers would probably be a bad idea.:p

    As a former android user, when live wallpapers first hit I thought they were awesome. But I quickly realized that they are more distracting than anything. Plus all the above of resource hogging is true.

    It would be just another spec to turn off to save battery and actually become part of the list that members tell new members on what to turn off to conserve juice !

    Aint that the truth, when I use one of my android phones as a music player I like to turn it on for entertainment value but if it is my main phone that is definitely a feature I could live without on a 4g phone.

    I had live wallpapers on my previous android phone & I rarely used them because of battery drain. Sure they look nice but that's basically it.

    I hope not. A total waste of resources and having had them, I'm not fond of them.

    Why do you all care if it has live wallpapers? If you don't like them, don't use them. Problem solved and those who want it, can have it without jail-breaking. Everyone's happy.

    Sheesh.

    Why would you hope not? If they did have live wallpapers, I highly doubt one would be forced into using a live wallpaper. "That other OS" with live wallpapers sure doesn't require their use. Choice is always nice.

    I personally wouldn't use it, but giving people the option to have live wallpapers would be nice :)

    Live wallpapers are

    INCREDIBLE

    to say the least.


    My friend who has an EVO 3D showed me his various live wallpapers and I was shocked. Being so used to static picture wallpapers, live wallpapers just add a whole new experience to a device.

    Battery drain sure but one can manage it so it lasts throughout the day and charge daily overnight!

    The battery-life is awful on the current iPhone already. It doesn't need any help being worse.


    Owning an Android tablet and have ran live wallpapers before, they are interesting for about 15 minutes before you start being concerned over how much battery and CPU its hogging up.
