Wallpapers beyond Quad HD (1440 x 2560) for your Galaxy S6, Note5, LG G3/G4, DROID Turbo, Nexus 6, and others
PhoneArena regulars will be well-aware by now: we like our wallpapers. So much so, in fact, that we make sure to sift through hundreds of extremely high resolution, quality walls that we then make available for your to make use of. And when we say high resolution, we mean beyond Quad HD, or 1440 x 2560. That's more than even the most pixel-dense smartphone screens of the day.

That's a good thing. A good thing, because the process of downsizing image content to a lower resolution (something your device's launcher does by default) yields quality improvements. Which is why when filmmakers shoot in 4K resolution, they typically export it to 1080p for the mass market, and it looks crispier than a 1080p source encoded into a video format.

And what do you know, a few of the entries today are so high on resolution, that even 4K is a low bar. The biggest image in our collection is a 7210 x 3976 pixel monster—that's about 27 megapixels! Insane. Check out the full selection below.

As always, keep in mind that the images in the slideshow have been re-sized to save you both time and bandwidth (128MB => 1.63MB). To download the original, full resolution files, go HERE.

Wallpaper can eat up your battery and make your icons hard to see. I use just plain black. Most of the time I'm not even looking at the wallpaper, just using the apps.

Who says you only have to use these on your smartphone? Don't you have a PC?

and there is the beauty of having an IPS display, doesn't matter what color your screen is, it will consume the same, actually an IPS takes more energy displaying black color but almost nothing more.

Some of these are very nice. This is probably the best set I've seen posted. Thanks.

it's hard to find a really good background that is simple but neat at the same time. It has to be a on the darker side to be able see the icons at ease
