Galaxy Note 10 Deal: BOGO at Verizon!
  1. Android Central Question's Avatar
    I have a galaxy s7, used smart switch to transfer the data into my new s10e with wi-fi and everything has been transferred but when changing the wallpaper from pictures in the Gallery, it just resets to to the one I had on the previous phone. The lock screen's change stays changed but not the home screen. It would usually reset after a few hours of leaving the phone asleep. Is there something wrong with my phone?

    Something definitely dont seem right, try to set another picture from gallery and see if it will stay on your home screen.

    I've set another image from the gallery as a wallpaper for the lock and home screen and once again, the lock screen keeps the change but not the home screen.

    Depending on the wallpaper, the developer may not have updated their app. Check in the Puchased Items when you launch the wallpaper for your disappearing wallpaper. You may try to delete it then re-download it as a solution.

    Try Wallpaper Wizardrii and set something as wallpaper - it doesn't matter what, just any picture, just to see if it stays (something is wrong with the other wallpaper) or changes back (something is wrong with the S10e's firmware).
