Free phone wallpapers

If you're seeking a background picture for your phone, you've come to the right place! Here at BraveBay we have a bunch of different options for you.

Amazing backgrounds that still let you see your icons

All of our designs are colorful without being overly busy. We've carefully generated blends of colors and gradients to be visually pleasing. You'll be able to see your app icons just fine with any of our mobile phone wallpapers.

Many designs which offer red and orange tones

We've been careful to ensure a good selection of colors, in particular we offer many options that focus on red and orange tones. It can be wise to avoid blue tones late at night.

We do offer blue toned wallpapers for those who want it, but we also have plenty of red, yellow and orange backgrounds for those who wish to avoid blue light.

Tutorial for how to set your cell phone background

If you're not sure how to set your background after downloading one of our images, here's a step by step guide.

For Android phones

Step 1: After selecting your desired wallpaper and pressing the "Free download" button, go the Gallery app. There'll be a bunch of different albums there. You should be able to see your background image at a glance. If you don't, then look for the "Download" album; it'll be in there. It'll be in a separate album to where your camera pictures are, but still in the Gallery app.

Step 2: Tap on the picture to show it by itself. Then tap on the 3 dots at the top right, and select "Set image as". You might get a lot of options coming up next, but don't worry. Tap on "Home screen wallpaper". You may move the selected area around a bit if you wish. Then press "OK" at the bottom, and you're done! Voila your new cell phone background.

For iPhones

Step 1: After picking the background image that you like best and tapping "Free download", open "Settings" on your iPhone.

Step 2: Within Settings, press on Wallpaper, then "Choose a new wallpaper". It'll prompt you to choose an image. Select from "Photos" or "All photos" (not Dynamic or Live) and you'll be able to find your background in there.

Step 3. Once you've selected it from in Settings, you can drag to move the image around to adjust it. Then tap "Set".

Handy tips for both types of phones

Don't worry if you make a mistake: for Android and iPhone you have the option to press "Cancel" at the final stage instead of "OK" or "Set". So if you picked the wrong image or you just don't like it, you can start over. Even if you have set one you didn't like, you can set a new one.

If you decide you want to try out a few more of our wallpapers, be our guest! Try out different ones and see which you like best. Sometimes a wallpaper looks better or worse than you  had expected, so have fun trying out a bunch of backgrounds.

No matter what type of phone you have, the home screen and the lock screen are considered two different things by your phone. You're allowed different wallpapers on each. The home screen is the one you see after you enter your PIN or thumbprint and see all your icons. The lock screen is the screen you see when you first turn on your phone, before entering your PIN or thumbprint. The instructions we gave were for setting your home screen wallpaper. If you wish to select the same wallpaper for the lock screen, then the option to set for the lock screen appears in step 2 of the Android instructions (after "set image as") and step 3 of the iPhone instructions (after "set").
