Beautiful dark wallpapers in QHD, 4K, and beyond, perfect for AMOLED displays

Predominantly dark wallpapers look great on AMOLED displays, but they could fit well on any device and are particularly good for when you don't want your eyes gouged by bright lights late at night. Darker backgrounds are also less obtrusive in general, don't blend with icons and widgets, and can complement the design of any black or gray device.

This week's wallpaper collection is all about low-key imagery — dim lights, night-time cityscapes, moody landscapes, dark forests, and more — but is not completely devoid of color either! We tried to make our selection as diverse as possible, while sticking to the theme of darkness, which means that you are going to see some colors (albeit muted) in it as well.

As usual, all the images provided here are all high quality and large enough to look great on any smartphone or tablet, no matter its resolution.

Good ones this time! Mostly because I like and use dark themed wallpapers.

As long as it has a black backdrop and utilizes color instead of white the wallpaper is AMOLED friendly

Black (or dark) with bright brilliant colors (similar to #16 but with more variation in color) are the kind of wallpapers that I like.
