Forget About Live Wallpapers that Drain your Battery. Now you can Try Video Wallpapers (Video)
We all know that while Live Wallpapers look very good, with most of them even offering some sort of interaction, they drain a lot of battery. The battery usage mostly depends on the type of Live Wallpaper you choose to use. The more graphical intense ones keep the CPU clocked at a higher level the usual and also use the GPU. This causes severe battery drainage and is some cases, mostly on low-end devices, the occasional lag.
Developer Bonne App! is now offering for the first time a very good alternative to Live Wallpapers. His apps are based on VIDEO live wallpapers that not only do they look very good but also won’t drain your battery or slow down your device. The thing is these wallpapers are active only when the screen is on. Once in standby or when another app runs the Video Wallpaper is stopped so you can get optimum performance and battery life.
Ocean Alive Video Wallpapers offers a selection of videos that can be set as a wallpaper on your home screen. One of them called “Lighthouse” comes pre-loaded but you can download others from the settings menu. Upon testing I found the video wallpaper to run very smooth, with no noticeable lag or battery drainage. Three out of the eleven videos can be downloaded for free while the rest require that you purchase the complete version of the app. The developer is also offering other video wallpapers for free as separate apps.
