When we acquire a new mobile phone we always want it to look unique and special to us. For this we use wallpapers , not only for aesthetic reasons, but to be differentiated from other devices.
There is a huge variety of backgrounds for your smartphone, from the default ones installed at the factory on your mobile or any that you can download from the Internet. However, there is another option that will give your terminal an exclusive and quite curious appearance. For this reason, you surely want to know how to install a transparent wallpaper.
It is possible thanks to an app
The fact that technology advances by leaps and bounds means that mobile devices increasingly have a greater number of functions and peculiarities that they can take advantage of. One of them is the ability to set a transparent wallpaper, which is made possible by an application for your phone. The negative is that it is only available for Android, so if you have an iPhone you will not be able to take advantage of this curiosity.
The app in question is called ‘Transparent screen and live wallpaper’ . It is completely free software and, despite this, it does not abuse ads. In addition, it is very easy to use given the simplicity of its interface.
The process to set the transparent background is as simple as opening the application and selecting the option called Live Wallpaper Type and clicking on Set Transparent Wallpaper. However, to fully enjoy these types of wallpapers you need to keep the screen clean.
Beware of the battery
The procedure is lossless. If you have read carefully you will see how your previous background has disappeared being replaced by a translucent background. In case you haven’t realized it yet, this is possible because the app continuously uses your smartphone’s camera.
Obviously this causes excessive battery consumption , since the software will always be active in the background to offer you that transparency. Therefore, it is advisable to use it only as a curiosity and not to keep it continuously. Even with a phone whose battery has enormous autonomy, its capacity will suffer.
The quality is not the same
As you can see, the visual quality of the background is not the same as what the device’s camera actually offers. This is because the image is compressed so as not to affect the performance of the terminal.
Similarly, the focus is not totally sharp . Even so, it is a very peculiar alternative to use from time to time or to surprise your group of friends with a background that they will not know how to establish.
