    Do you know that the type of wallpaper you use in your phone shows your personality? Yes, it is. Your phone's wallpaper tells about your likes, dislikes and even your mood. Maybe you are a type of person who likes to see new things everyday. There are people who change the wallpaper everyday while people like me change the wallpaper once for a couple of months What type of person are you?

    Tell us how often you change your phone's wallpaper.

    On average, a couple of times a year.

    (It's currently the "Earthrise" photo from December '68, which I put on to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 8 mission. I'll probably stick an image of the Eagle on in July for the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. But I might fit one change in inbetween, if I see something that catches my eye in the right way).

    I think the last time when i felt a need to do it was when Luis Suarez moved to Barcelona.
    Otherwise i just swap one incredibly dark black wallpaper for another one...

    Maybe every three or four months if NASA has good space pics. If not, then I shuffle though the ones I have.

    I hate steaming it off, cleaning the glue. There's always the argument with my wife about whether we should paint or paper again. I do it as infrequently as I can.

    Really. That's when I bought aniPet Koi Live Wallpaper, and have never even felt the need to look for something else:

    Screenshot_20190309-132623_smaller.png

    It's beautiful and fun! You're able to choose all sorts of things, like how many fish, which type of fish, the initial size of each one, how fast each grows, whether they die if you forget to feed them, and lots more.

    I love it! :D

    So, yeah, I never change my wallpaper.

    Last year, I changed the lockscreen wallpaper on my S5. Created one for the Motororola, that was a temp. Then finally made one for the V40. However, the desktop wallpaper has remained virtually unchanged since my first smartphone.

    Once every 3 months on average.

    Or if my phone's launcher gets amnesia and I somehow can't find what I had on at the time.

    Been the same Marvin the Martin one since my first Droid phone, which was a Droid Eris back in November of 2009.

    Hardly ever. I fall in love with my live wallpaper and keep it... until I fall in love with something even more awesome. I had Asteroids Pack LWP on my phone for the longest time... and it took Shadow Galaxy to replace it. I have no idea what could possibly top this, but I've learned to never say never...

    I've never used a wallpaper on any of my phones. Not my thing.
