Live wallpapers are a great way of enhancing the look and feel of your phone. While many OEMs add a few native live wallpaper options or allow you to download them from there own theme stores, how can you apply live wallpapers that you pick elsewhere or port from other phones? We recently tried applying Note 20 Ultra (review) Live wallpapers to Samsung, Xiaomi, POCO, OPPO, Vivo, Realme, and other phones.

Samsung’s OneUI has built-in options to set live wallpapers on lock screen and home screen. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open Gallery

    Open gallery and select video that you wish to set as live wallpaper

  2. Apply to the lock screen

    If the video is too long, you will get an option to trim it to 15 seconds. Now just tap on “set on lock screen” option.

  3. Home screen live wallpapers

    To set live wallpaper on the home screen, long press on the home screen, select wallpapers, and check ‘my wallpapers’. The option for live wallpapers is listed under the triple dot menu on the top left.
