10 great new Android live wallpapers
Android was by no means the first mobile operating system, but up until this day it remains the one with richest customization options. Just think about the fact that Windows Phone has just gotten the option to use custom wallpapers, and Android has had not just any kind of wallpapers, but animated live wallpapers for years. Apple’s iOS also lacks this cool option.

But among thousands of live wallpapers, you’d find that many of them are not that good looking, and others plain lag. That’s why we picked the 10 best new Android live wallpapers that not only look good, but that also live up to a standard of fluid performance that won’t slow down your phone or tablet.

From the immersive fantasy world of castles and dragons (adapting to the time of day, by the way), to the depths of the oceans and deep space, our selection of 10 great Android live wallpaper will make your home screen look special. Check them all out right below.

I want to see statistics of power usage by these live wallpapers though. I don't actually see that significant of a battery hit but they're literally like movies running in the background (interactive movies). Someone know of any objective tests of the type??

It would be great if they also give a rank to each of these live wallpapers depending upon their power consumption

Grab a current drain app with a CPU so to measure.
You can get an idea pretty quick if it's worth keeping it or not.

iOS 7 parallax effect which causes vertigo, headaches or even nausea. Even one of PhoneArena.com writers Ray S. admitted that iOS 7 parallax effect is causing discomfort to him.

My only complain with live wallpapers is that they are written in apk, I wish they Google could use different formats for widgets, apps, themes, live wallpapers, etc.

Nothing compares to having a still shot of my grandkids as a screen saver. However, a live wallpaper of someone pissing on an iphone could come close.
