Among the dozens of Windows Phone 8.1 leaks in the last week there is one comment I have seen a few times: “what about background wallpapers?” There is a small contingent of users that really want to have a background wallpaper on their Start Screen, like in Windows 8. In the past we’ve asked you about this just for fun when there was no chance of it happening. Today we are asking with a slightly higher possibility.
Tom Warren from The Verge sent out a couple tweets earlier today of a Windows Phone Start Screen with a background wallpaper. He accompanied those tweets with some cryptic messages and smiley faces. We’re not sure if these are just mock-ups or actual screenshots from Windows Phone 8.1. Right now we are playing it safe and assuming they aren’t real.
So why are we doing this poll? Last time we asked the question most of you were against the idea. Tom’s screenshots have brought the idea up again. Are you still against background wallpapers? Or do you want to deck your phone out in as many ways possible? We are of the opinion that if it’s an option everyone can do what they want with it. What do you think?
