It’s Customization Month on Android.Appstorm! Throughout March, we plan to share with you all our tips, tricks, apps and resources to help you improve your phone or tablet experience and make them suit your style.
Any Android user knows that customization starts with a great homescreen background. The wallpaper element is the quickest way to change the way your phone looks and is the central force that pulls everything together to give your homescreen its distinct style — one you can truly call your own.
Unfortunately, the need to beautify our phones can sometimes be a tiring and time-consuming process that not a lot of us have time nor patience for. Despite the apparent scarcity of quality background images in the web, there are a lot of places where you can get high definition wallpapers for your phone. You just have to know what to look for. Fortunately for you, this roundup brings you the best wallpaper resources the Internet has to offer. Here are 50 of the best-looking images that can grace your home screens today.

Most images from the web may not always have this resolution as a default, but since they are all high definition, you can be sure that the image will not lose its quality when resized to fit the Android screen.
