30 mesmerizing and downright awesome Android boot animations that you can easily install
The beauty and success of Android have always been firmly rooted in its tweakable core. We love highlighting cool ways to make your device your own, and not just 'another' Android phone. There honestly are hundreds of customizations that you can carry out, but checking your pre-loaded boot animation is rarely on most people's list. That's understandable -- after all, you most likely only get to see that one once every one or two weeks -- but it's still an area that can be manipulated to your taste rather easily. In fact, it's often the details, the small stuff, that really get you attached to your phone, and those have always been a great way to celebrate the underlying Android philosophy.

Below you'll find short previews of 20 of the best-looking boot animations that we could get our hands on. Quite frankly, best-looking could be something of an understatement, as some of the stuff we have for you is downright mesmerizing, the rest is just plain awesome. Loading these on your device is pretty straightforward, and while this post is more of a showcase than a guide, you can always learn how to do it manually, or just download a dedicated app from the Google Play Store. As with most worthwhile modifications, you'll need to be rooted.

Ready? Let's go.

Surely if you boot your phone so often that you need pretty animations to entertain you while doing it, there is something VERY WRONG with your phone!

Some people just want their phone to look exactly like they want.
