Awesome vertical ultra high-res wallpapers for your Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Nexus 6P, LG V20, HTC 10, and others

Getting tired of looking at the same image every time you unlock your device? Well, even if you somehow aren't, we will do our best to persuade you that it's time for a change. Welcome to yet another installment of our biweekly wallpapers pick, where we do our best to present our readers with finely curated collections of beautiful, extremely high resolution backgrounds perfect for any smartphone or tablet out there.

This week's best wallpapers are not united by concept, but rather by shape. Horizontal backgrounds are good for scrolling, but sometimes it is hard to pick just the right portion of the image to perfectly fit your main home screen, or there is no such portion at all, as the source image may only look appealing in its original landscape format only. That's where vertical wallpapers shine. They have been made like this and require no cropping, no tempering with. You can apply them to both your home and lock screens without compromising any of their original aesthetic qualities.

  • As usual, you can preview the wallpapers in the gallery below. For the full-sized images, go here.
