I am looking for a lightweight gallery with following characteristics:

  1. No annoying 2D/3D animations
  2. Possibility to set wallpaper
  3. Classification by folders
  4. Fast or at least faster then standard Cooliris gallery
  5. No background services like Just Pictures!

    Umm.. what's wrong with the stock gallery? It does not have fancy animations, you can set wallpapers, have folders, it's fast I think, and I'm not aware of any background services it uses.

  • I agree stock gallery (the one you can find under the name "Gallery 3D" on the market) is really slow, unless you don't have a lot of pictures. The UI is great though, it's too bad that performances are poor.

I'm a big fan of QuickPic: it's simple and truly fast :)

  • I like it, really fast and not much CPU occupation.

You may want to look into Picturen Lite. On first run it can be a bit slow to load but after that everything is fast. I think the app meets all the points on your list. It looks like the app is still in development with a full version coming soon with more features.
