How often do you change your phone's wallpaper?

31

Wallpapers are a big deal. If you don't believe us, just look at that beautiful nature collection of high-res ones we've picked for you. It's the first thing you see when you unlock your phone, and one of the easiest ways to customize your phone to suit your generous and unique personality. 

That being said, though, there are plenty of approaches to wallpaper-ing. Some just stick with whatever their phones ship with, as long as their icons are easily discernible on it, that is why the stock wallpaper collections are perhaps the most widely used ones, and some have become a signature of whole phone lines or generations. 

Others would change their stock background with something else that is provided by the manufacturer out of the box every now and then, while some would go to greater lengths and install a wallpaper app that gives them access to millions of tailored images to pick and choose from. There are even apps that will change the wallpaper for you every day if you wish, so that you never get bored looking at one and the same screen. 

You have to be careful with automatic swaps, though - you don't want to end up with a bright set of icons on a bright background, or vice versa - that is why we wanted to ask you how often do you change the wallpaper on your phone in general. Check it in the poll below, and do tell us why.
