LG G5 gets exclusive 360-degree wallpapers via SmartWorld app, free Amazon gift cards for participating in promo


LG G5 360 degree live wallpapers

360-degree content is getting a big push this year. We’ve seen LG go all in on the new media with the LG G5, not only their new 360-degree camera, but their extremely portable VR headed as well. Another neat way to view 360-degree photos is on the LG G5’s home screen using the 360 Wallpaper feature. It allows you to display 360-degree spherical images on your home screen, panning around as you move your phone or swipe through the different screens.

Because they want more people to take advantage of this unique LG G5 feature (not everyone is getting that free LG 360 Cam, mind you), they announced today that they’ll also be making available 12 professionally photographed 360-degree wallpapers that will be free to download via the LG SmartWorld app. LG says 4 new images will be added each month from May to November, so they encourage G5 owners to check back regularly for new 360-degree photos.

“The G5 is designed to deliver a playful mobile experience to customers and 360-degree imagery is a key part of that experience. 360-degree photography is still in its early stages but we believe it will drive adoption of VR innovation in the mobile space.”

LG’s 360 photos will be available in all 69 countries where the LG SmartWorld app is available. They’re even giving away 150 Amazon gift cards valued at $30 for anyone who leaves a comment on their 360-degree video here. To get started, login to and download the app.
