I saw the one video with the bubbles moving with the phones movemnet but is there any other live wallpapers?
I was hoping that X commercial was one of the live wallpapers.

Supposedly at the keynote there were live wallpapers but hard to say if they will make it to the non-demo units

Just sips on battery and even RAM. My favorite live wallpaper on Android was the Nexus Revamped..

On my SE, I have 3D parallax of a lion, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and whatever. Don't use it. Changed my settings back to static and not dynamic. Just put a plain black wallpaper to save battery.

The novelty wears off with live wallpapers like a koi pond, 3D parallax, or even video wallpapers from way back in the day thanks to jailbreak.

While I agree that live wallpapers do suck battery. Are you saying that a plain black wallpaper on an SE will save battery life? That is not the case at all.

Supposedly they have them in the x model because of the oled screen. Shouldn’t hurt battery life much. There was one floating around with the bubbles flowing the way the phone is moving. I’m sure there’s more than one.

Its definitely time for a wallpaper refresh on Apple devices. I was happy to download the pixel live wallpapers to my android devices. The beautiful earth one with the golden sparkles on the United States with a fully black background with the earth as the center of attention is a site to behold on a AMOLED display.

Has any reviews covered this yet? I watched most and no talk of it yet.
