Just bought a Samsung Nexus S. No manual came with it. Apparently the moving default screensaver eats up heaps of battery life and I am not getting much battery life out of this new phone and I am constantly recharging.

How do you change it to a non-moving image?

  • As the Nexus S is a "Pure Google" phone pretty much every detail of it is covered in the standard Android manual. See the Android 2.3 manual here google.com/googlephone/AndroidUsersGuide-2.3.pdf – GAThrawn Aug 4 '11 at 12:18
  • "Screensaver"? Do you mean the Live Wallpaper? – ale Aug 4 '11 at 12:59
  • Live wallpapers normally only consume battery when you're on the home screen, they don't play in the background. – Matthew Read Aug 4 '11 at 14:24

From the home screen, press the phone's Menu button. Here, there is usually a button for Wallpaper (it will be the top right button on the menu), where you should be able to pick your wallpaper (this applies to your background and lockscreen).
