Who Uses Live Wallpapers On Their Incredible?
Hey everyone! Just wondering who uses live wallpapers on their Incredible? I'm a little scared to use them 100% of the time because I feel like my phone gets hotter when they're on and I'm worried about battery consumption. So who uses a live wallpaper all the time and how does it affect heat and battery life?

I don't use them. I'm OK with a photo background, and I figure the live backgrounds have an impact on battery life. Though minimal, I'd rather have those few percent...-Strygun

I do. They use the most minimal amount of battery and have not noticed any heat.

They only draw juice when they are on/displayed. They really don't use all that much power. On my moto droid, they would make the phone lag even when over clocked. But on the incredible, I see no difference.
Also on my droid i saw no battery life change while using them as opposed to using a static wallpaper. I will do a test today on the incredible but expect the same results.

There is way too many good ones to ever get bored (NexusMod, Seeds of Life, Galaxy 3D, Earth, Shake them all....ect)
Plus I hear some developer that has a top selling weather app is also making one

If you go menu/settings/about phone/battery/battery use. It shows my live background ( which is more interactive than most ) is only using 2% of my battery ( Im guessing since last charge ) So pretty negligable. And i notice 0 lag.

Since I got the Incredible I have only used live wallpapers and haven't noticed and heat problems or lag. I'm always around a charger so battery isn't to much of an issue. I do change which live wall I use every few days.

Correct that is since last charge.
Mine shows Android System, cell stand by, phone idle and display as the primary power consumers.
Live WP is at 1% usage.
