    I currently using a Lenovo A7000 plus and having a problem that is i cannot change my lockscreen wallpaper. It doesnt happen before but somehow i cannot change it now. I've tried searching on the web and reading the solution, reboot my phone, but it does not change a thing. Is it because the glitch, or maybe because the new Android version, or the software in the phone itself? Thank you in advance.

    What version of Android is your phone running?

    Android made the change with either Lollipop or Marshmallow (can't remember). But if you want your lock screen to have a different background you'll have to download a 3rd party app (I use Next).

    I can change mine on my Note 4 running 6.0.1. I go to settings > wallpaper and change it from there.

    That's a TouchWiz feature...

    Unless something changed recently, there is no standard programming API for changing the lockscreen wallpaper.
    Some OEM add the option to their version of the OS. Some carriers add it.
    Otherwise, some third-party apps go through the trouble to figure out what is needed for the various phones.

    My ATT branded LG G4 on Android 6.0.x has the feature of changing the lockscreen wallpaper, but I am not sure who added that feature to the Settings system.
