Price: Free, $0.99
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Easy to set up and use!
- Loads of information types to choose from!
- Animated and futuristic looking!
Device Info 2020 is a geeky live wallpaper which displays various device information as your homescreen background. In a number of cool animations, the information includes: device type, battery level, battery temperature, RAM usage, WiFi connection, Android version, storage levels, clock, processor type and CPU usage. Each can be added or taken away meaning the wallpaper can be dynamic.
The information appears much like tiny widgets and info panels which move around. The background in the free version is blue, with equalizer-style levels in the background. I did note a tiny flickering in the image, which I couldn’t quite explain and while I don’t think it was a big deal, it might annoy some people.
It’s a wallpaper designed for minimalist homescreen contents. Simply put, if you have widgets, icons, etc. these are going to block the information in place or, at worse, look horribly cluttered. Obviously you can limit the amount of information that is displayed, but there’s no control over where in the screen the information is displayed.
That said, the full version of the application introduces additional features. These include: customizable backgrounds and more effects, hexa-grid, SMS notifications, more animations plus pinch and zoom controls. It adds a considerable amount of functionality to the basic app and, at under a dollar, it’s pretty good value.

For keeping track of information about your device, it’s pretty handy. If you’re watching your battery closely or seeing how much RAM is being used by a particular application, this is very useful and worth checking out.
Ease of Use:
Like most live wallpapers, it’s just a matter of tweaking the settings before you set the wallpaper (we’ve written a guide if you need help). The menus are familiar and simple to use. Naturally, you get a preview before you set it as your wallpaper.
The app is technically used whenever you use your phone.
The interface looks quite slick and the designed quite themed. The menu system is very typical of live wallpapers, perhaps a bit dated by certainly simple to navigate.
