Re-paper Your Home Screen

You’ve set up your home screen and added the widgets you need to get the most from your HTC.  Now it’s time to change the wallpaper to something that provides a glimpse into your interests and style.

Changing wallpaper is easy, just tap: Settings->Personalize->Wallpaper. The real trick is finding the right image!

Here are some of my personal favorites taken by the newest member of the HTC Social Media Team, Adam Hawes. Adam comes to HTC from a wide background in both core media and action sports, recently moving to Seattle from Lake Tahoe, CA.

Which of these photos from Adam do you like best? What other types of images would you like us to collect for the next set of downloads?


Bassnectar w/ DJ Z-Trip, San Diego, CA 2011.

Iconic urban artwork, Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA 2010.

    Thanks Larry,
    Abstracts with simplicity grabs my attention the most.
    I love my home screen to be simple an easy on the eye!
    Bluish colors and green gradients are my favorites.
    I really loved the “Stand-Up Paddleboarder on Lake Tahoe, CA 2012.”
    If it were with no human, I would have downloaded it.
    Thanks again.

      Why? The boat finalizes the whole view. Seeing a man, doing something that simple, abstract from the world shows the complete irrationality of mankind. No thoughts about taxes and other stuff. Put it as your wallpaper and imagine that it’s you on that boat.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=696112190 Ahmad Abdel-Aziz

        Will give it a try

        • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

          Let us know what you think Ahmad. We will have some more wallpapers like this in the future.

    I think HTC has cheated me.It was promised 512mb internal memory but I’ve got only 150mb in my HTC Explorer.

    • http://twitter.com/AleksandarPet21 Aleksandar Petrovic

      Why the heck did you bought explorer? Why not Desire C? There is an app to transfer apps from phone memory to sd card, it’s called App 2 Sd or something like that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rdjakhangirov Rustam Djakhangirov

    love the last picture. Peace within nature. Amazing and calming.

  • Vijay Suriya

    I have HTC chacha n its internal memory. is 150 mb only…..so i have many problem with that….any solution…….

  • http://www.facebook.com/waha999 Abdul Wahab

    I really like that wallpaper I get on Jellybean because it’s the closest thing I’ll get to JB on a Desire HD.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rdjakhangirov Rustam Djakhangirov

    Larry It’s amazing what htc did with the blog. Big pics and additional scripts made it really nice.

    • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

      Thanks Rustam,

    I absolutely LOVE the urban graffiti! I would like to see more of these wallpapers…

  • http://www.facebook.com/5green0eyez5 Louisa LuLu Estrada

    Other great wallpapers would be Abstract! Gota have me some abstract 😉

  • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

    Hi Jose,

    We are working on a way for you to do just that. stay tuned!

  • JasonDSQ

    I would some a space/starry-night-themed wallpapers. Particularly ones that are overall relatively dark, and not visually cluttered. A simple variegated star-field could be perfect.

    I prefer them dark, to use up the screen less, to not draw attention when using my phone in the dark, and to improve readability of icons. Readability is also why I like them not visually cluttered.

  • Pratik kadam

    hey frnds m using htc desire c 4.0 android but now a days my apps r not geting update judt downloading is comming only plz help me for solution

    Hoping for more to add to the collection.

  • Shane Willetts

    Nice – again, as many people have posted – either HTC Hub needs these or the .com website needs to include them (as well as other phones other than the One X+) – and congrats on the redesign!

  • http://www.facebook.com/vigoos Vignesh Iyer

    Same here.. HTC Salsa and HTC Wildfire S and CHaCha.

  • http://www.facebook.com/vigoos Vignesh Iyer

    On my HTC One X with the JB update wallpaper scolling is not possible now. If HTC enables this feature it would have been lot of fun with these wallpapers…. Awesome wallpapers 🙂

  • Ahmad Abdullah

  • http://www.facebook.com/nguyen.b.chien.3 Nguyễn Bá Chiến

  • http://www.facebook.com/nasir.ibrahime Nasir Ibrahime

    I am not able to connect to htc hub at all from my newly bought htc evo 4g, why is that it keeps saying unable to connect try later

  • http://www.facebook.com/nasir.ibrahime Nasir Ibrahime

    The htc evo 4g is my first smart phone what do all those preinstalled apps do and how do u figure that out, there should be a catalogue or instruction book explaining what they are and what is thier use, please help a begginer, im not really getting the most out of my phone, its almost as if i just have a regular old cellphone, can someone point me in the right direction to catch up and teach myself what I can
