Switching wallpapers is perhaps one of the most basic customization tricks. Whether it is our phones or our PCs, switching to a new wallpaper spruces up the screen's look. Today, with phones bundling amazing display specs and notches in different shapes, it’s imperative that we get the most out of them with creative and eye-catching images.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, it’s time you welcome a set of new wallpaper apps. Be it embracing the QHD display and the hole-punch camera cutout or making the most of the AMOLED display, the following swath of Android wallpaper apps are built to suit many needs. Let’s check them out!

1. Embrace the Punch-Hole Camera: Hidey Hole
What’s so special about Hidey Hole? It houses all the creative punch-hole friendly wallpapers from the S10 subreddit under a single roof, thus making it super convenient to check out new images related to this new sensation.
There are a bunch of wallpapers in varied themes, and that’s what makes the app so cool. From amazing Wall-E and adorable Groot images to mysterious space wallpapers, you won't be disappointed.
The quality of wallpapers are pretty good and do equal justice to the display. What you’ll love about it is that it has all the features you’d need on a wallpaper app. You can filter wallpapers based on your device's make. Just tap on the three-dot menu and select the device.
Furthermore, you can also choose the categories from a host of available ones.
Borderlight is a slightly different wallpaper app. This live wallpaper app attempts to liven up your phone’s borders in various shades of neon.
Originally made for the OnePlus 6, it was meant to display the borders around the tear-drop notch. Though it doesn’t support the punch-hole cutout of the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus yet, you can use this app to highlight the Infinity Display of your Galaxy S10/S10 Plus.
Also, these are not just any images. You can customize the colors, animation speed as well as the thickness of the borders. However, the feature that I loved the most was its Background image option. The original image has a dark background, but you are free to add any picture.
The only thing you have to keep in mind is that you need to have the image on your phone's storage. Also, there are options for image saturation and desaturation that you can explore.
If you are into AMOLED friendly wallpapers (battery life is vital, you see), you can take a look at Darkops AMOLED Wallpapers app by Mice Productions LLC.
The app has a swath of images in dark backgrounds that not only helps save the battery of your Galaxy S10/S10 Plus but also helps give it a dynamic look. The good thing about this is that most of the images are high-res images meaning that they do not get pixelated when you apply them to your home screen.
Also, the app provides a plenty of categories. From nature and space to cool alphabets and superhero images, you will get your share of must-haves wallpapers here.
Powered by Unsplash, Walldrobe comes with a vast image library of quality images. And to answer your question, yes, you will find your regular dose of sun and sea wallpapers, along with lots more.
The app carries a beautiful design with all the features neatly laid out. You can either download an image or set one directly. Plus, typical of most wallpaper apps, there are image categories and a search button, just in case you don’t feel like scrolling through the pool of images.
Plus, a nifty Load Quality option makes sure that you see only the best images. Tap on the hamburger icon at the bottom-left corner to go to Settings, and you're good to go.
And did I tell you that the app doesn’t have any obstructive ads?
You can also set up an interval to change the wallpaper automatically, after upgrading to the Pro version. Along with the interval, you can also choose the category and the screen (home screen or lock screen).
Have you heard of wallpaper playlists? If no, it’s time you installed Walli. Walli has a built-in automatic wallpaper changer feature which it calls Walli Playlist. Just like any other playlist, you can add in your images (maximum 10), set an interval and let the ball roll.
It has the usual Play and Next functions using which you can skip to the next image. Plus, you can always add new images to the list as you browse through the feed.
However, that’s not all. Unlike some wallpaper apps which sources images from stock wallpaper sources, Walli compiles the creative images from its community of artists.
And in due course of time, if you happen to like an artist, you can ask to be notified whenever they upload a new image.
Cool Fact: Walli has a rating of 4.9 on the Play Store with more than ten million downloads so far.
