    Default How much does Live Wallpaper slow down?

    When using a live wallpaper vs a static wallpaper, does the live wallpaper only hog a bit of extra memory when you're on the homepages? Or does it continue to hog RAM/CPU when you are you in another app, like Youtube?

    Default Re: How much does Live Wallpaper slow down?

    When the live wallpaper is not being displayed, it's inactive, and not using any cpu or battery.

    I guess I should say that's true of properly designed live wallpaper. I can't swear there aren't badly written wallpapers that continue to eat up resources even when not displayed.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
