What makes a good smartphone wallpaper?  What do you look for, what makes a background for your smartphone good?  I ask because I just got my first smartphone.  Also post your wallpapers if you want.

Here's my current wallpaper, it's the default which is what I normally use. However if I get bored of it I'll just switch it up for something on my phone's HD

Here's a thread I made with 85 wallpapers: https://lewd.sx/t/phone-wallpapers-1080x1920

Essentially what makes a good mobile wallpaper for me is a bit of space for my most used apps. I like it clean, attractive, but usable. I've left my old tasker set-up with all 85 wallpapers being in rotation for something new. I'm giving KLWP a try and so far I'm quite loving it. I have my most used apps and music toggles hidden away but within reach.

Current set-up: u.pomf.is/xrdkne.png

I look for wallpapers that are quite simple, minimalistic, so that they don't obscure any potential text or UI elements that may be above them. Cuteness is also an important factor, as well as not being too bright - I don't like being blinded when for whatever reason I have to look at my phone in the middle of the night. As for technical details, ~9:16 >=1440p PNG. If I find an image I like but it's resolution is too low or is jpegged, I put it through waifu2x, assuming it's an image that responds well to it.

I found this one gundam wallpaper that I love. I'm keeping this one for a while. Would love some Raven walls too.[Image: 687474703a2f2f7777772e746865666f72676f74...322e6a7067]
