  • Nathan Koal

    These wallpapers are kinda disappointing imo

    • Droid_Junky

      I agree. Was hoping for the full size version of the one that is showed on the box.

    • robjackson81

      Really? Wow… I like that first one a lot. I guess to each their own!

      • master94

        Same I really love the first one, the rest however are a bit boring

      • real0325

        Me too”

      • jfelts

        Same here. I really like 1, 5, 6. I generally like abstract though.

      • jessez93

        they’re just too generic. that goes with most wallpapers found on nexus devices.

  • SocalTeknique

    Ugly! I guess I’ll continue to stick with my aging Phase Beam wallpaper

    • Alfonso Surroca

      Nothing wrong with that. I’ve had the Phase Beam live wallpaper for most of my Galaxy Nexus’ life… Never gets old!

  • Chris Chavez

    Protip: If you’re on your computer, click image, right click the preview popup, open image in new tab, and you’ll have the full res versions.

    • Tony T.

      If using Chrome on someone else’s computer: right click, inspect element, change image URL to iOS 7 image, profit.

    • Piotr Zientarski

      Or you can just use middle mouse button :)

      • Lactose_the_Intolerant

        It’s surprising to me how many people don’t know about clicking the middle mouse button (wheel).

  • BigCiX

    I kinda like non of them.

  • Brian Edward Goss

    Why does Google always … NEVER include the wallpaper from press renders!?!?!?

    • Shawn Cheever

      They did that on the Nexus 4 with the yellow triangles but the renders of the N5 have all been the mountains (last pic in the the post).

      • Brian Edward Goss

        Are you serious? I’ve seen the pics with the mountains, but the stylized “5” wallpaper is all over the Google Play Store, used in official press renders, and it’s on the official packaging

        • Shawn Cheever

          Edit: Ok I see which one you mean now in the Play Store. Looks sorta like the one from the new Nexus 7 but that wallpaper is released (

  • DDroid45

    i never use the wallpapers provided by OEMS or NEXUS phones, regular or live

  • Jason Farrell

    Pass. My goto place for wallpapers is still

    • Lactose_the_Intolerant

      Between and interfacelift, wallpapers on my devices only stay for a day — if that. I might need an intervention :p

  • supremekizzle

    Loving the mountain one on my N4 running obsanity’s color fix.

  • toomuchgame441

    what’s up with Googles ugly wallpaper for the Nexus line? Hasn’t had a decent set since Ice Cream Sandwich

  • Brian

    I like 1,2,3 & 8. I use them in Themer Beta, they look great! Thanks.

  • AaronMcCune

    Is it just me or is the resolution only 640×640? I opened this article in my browser to download them because I didn’t see a link for a zip that contained them all. So I long pressed on one of them and selected to save the image and after it downloaded it showed the resolution only being 640×640. By the way, thanks Phandroid for all the work you guys have done tonight. Amazing as always!!

    • AaronMcCune

      Never mind. Figured it out. Thanks Chris

  • Sora Chan

    Several of them remind me of toned down “less psychadelic” paranoid android wallpapers

  • Charles Sweeney

    Where’s the wallpaper from the default in all the N5 photos? That’s the one I like.

  • tb1

    These are lame. It seems like the last cool ones were Microbes and Phase Beam.

  • jfelts

    Why am I never able to set a wallpaper from the Phandroid App itself?

    • Steve Albright

      We are not a wallpaper site so it really wasn’t a priority. I am currently working on a new version that will be released hopefully very soon. …setting an image as wallpaper shouldn’t be a huge task.. I will add it to my todo.

  • No 4.4 This will go a long way

    Thanks for the link. Downloaded but nothing really special.

  • Milind

    These are just sorry! You’d think Google has enough money to pay a few designers and photographers money for some fantastic wallpapers for their flagship phone! I can understand lame wallpapers on Cyanogenmod, but this is sad.

    • mattcoz

      Agreed, I’m cancelling my order immediately, this is just unacceptable.

      • Betasync

        come on, guys… they are just wallpapers…

  • Yowan Rdotexe

    But where is the default wallpaper? I mean that one seen in the press renders.
