Wallpaper evolution: Samsung outs infographic of the 'iconic' Galaxy S line backgrounds
Waiting for the new Samsung Galaxy S model to be unveiled has become an annual event anticipated as much as the yearly updating of the Apple iPhone. And oh my, when it comes to the Galaxy S6, has Sammy's little S boy become all grown up, with stellar hardware, and classy exterior.

As if to celebrate the winning march of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, forecast to sell up to 50 million units this year, Samsung has concocted an interesting infographic, this time focusing on the "iconic" wallpapers of each Galaxy S line generation. It  shows how we started with the OG phone sporting a "mere" 4-inch, Super AMOLED screen, and powered by a 1 GHz processor. The Samsung Galaxy S6 features a 5.1 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, powered by a homegrown Exynos 7 Octa chipset. Along the way, the rear-facing camera has gone from 5 MP to 16 MP with OIS tech, while the RAM amount went from 1 GB to 3 GB. 

As the infographic reminds us, the wallpapers also changed to reflect the evolutionary journey for Samsung's flagship Android handset over those years - from the nightscape original one, meant to emphasize the novel AMOLED technology at the time, to the current fluid pattern that represents the future of technology. Take a look below, and tell us which one you liked the most.

I liked HTC wallpapers better than the Samsung ones. I used the One X wallpaper, the default sense 4.0 wallpaper (green hills, with golden sky). http://saga-lbc-mod.de/2012/htc-sense-4-0-wallpaper-default-wallpaper-htc-x-htc-htc/ I still use the sound events from the HTC Hero, as the Samsung and stock Android sound events sound like something a high school kid would want on their phone.
