    Looking for good dark live wallpaper recommendations that will take advantage of the S8 gorgeous screen, but not be too distracting of a background. S8 stock live wllpapers are fine, but looking to change it up. Thanks.

    Wave. For less distraction, slow it down.

    Actually that is where I have been getting my dark themed abstract wallpapers. Great selection of those, didn't realize they have live wallpapers - will have to check it out.

    So I tried wave, and even at the slow setting it was too distracting for my OCD - thanks for the recommendation though.

    The built-in S8 live wallpapers are about as much as I can handle going on in the background, but I can't find anything close to those. I looked at a few "ICS phase beam" clones, but they are either $$ and haven't been updated for at least two years, or the couple free ones I tried didn't even work.

    I did stumble upon this interesting app (Weatherback) that takes your static wallpaper and just adds stuff to it based on the weather: frost if it is freezing outside, raindrops if it is raining, and some subtle sunbeams if it is sunny. I tried the free version and I like it enough that I will spring for the $$ version to get extra effects like fog, starlight at night, etc.

    This seems to be enough to change things up a bit without having a bunch of stuff moving in the background making my OCD go into overdrive. And the effect works really well on the abstract small pattern wallpapers I like to use.
