How to change the wallpaper on the Samsung Galaxy S5?

Here is one of the best new smartphones from Samsung – the new Galaxy S5.

Part of the excitement of getting a new phone is being able to personalize it. When it comes to making the software our own, that’s where things like downloading apps and customizing the look and feel come in. If you have the new Galaxy S5, changing the wallpaper should be one of the first items on your personalization list. Here is how you can do it:

  1. Either tap and hold or pinch your fingers together on any Home screen of your Galaxy S5 to access your Home screen settings menu.
  2. Now tap on Wallpapers in the lower left hand corner.
  3. Choose the wallpaper you’d like to change – the screen resolution is 1080×1920 px. You can choose between Home and Lock screen or you can choose a combined wallpaper that will be applied to both using the last option.
  4. Now choose from one of the wallpapers Samsung has made readily available or tap on More images to the far left.
  5. Choose the Gallery option or any other option you’d like that contains images you can use as wallpapers.
  6. Once you find the wallpaper you’d like to use, tap on it and then choose Set Wallpaper at the top.
