    Live wall papers are cool, but I'd rather have a little more pep and better battery life.

    If you don't care about battery life, use them. I charge my phone at my every night when I go to sleep and while at my desk at work.

    No battery issues for me - because I charge it so much. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't make it 12 hours.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go plug it back in!

    I haven't really had any battery issues with mine. I turn my phone off every night and if I'm not playing games on my phone at work then I can get two days out of my phone. If you go into setting>about phone>battery> battery use that will tell you what % the live wallpaper is using. I try to find one that runs a low %.

    Love the water thing.

    Question, if you use your own photo as wallpaper can you have a different photo for each of the seven screens, or is it like live wallpaper where it's the same across each screen?

    Considering my phone is usually black-screened while in standby, I don't use the live wallpapers. I wake up the phone, do what I need to do, then back to black-screen standby. The live wallapapers are fun though.

    Some of the live wallpapers are alittle too CPU intensive IMO like Galaxy. Magic Smoke runs great and looks cool especially since you can choose so many diff. colors and patterns. Other live wallpapers just make a mess of the screen and more difficult to view your icons or widgets like the Matrix or Aquarium.

    I use the photo slideshow live wallpaper. That way you can have a whole collection of wallpapers and have them switch every so often. Never get bored of your wallpaper again :D

    Or, take your own photos and point it to your photo folder to have your own wallpapers.

    There is a free version of it, it does work on our phones you just can't pick custom colors.

    No live wallpapers. I'm 25 already.. Live wallpapers are for the teenagers mostly.

    Very vibrant coral reef picture with a turtle swimming though. Even better. Probably eats up battery just as much!

    No problem. If you download it let me know what you think of it. I dig it.
