What is the Galaxy S8 Background Wallpaper Option?
The Galaxy S8 Background Wallpaper option is a way to personalize the phone by setting a personalized image.
Your smartphone is an extension of who you are; you use it for just about everything, from taking pictures and videos to searching the web. So putting a fun and personalized background lets you share with others a little about yourself without divulging too much information.

When changing the background, keep in mind that it does not change the way the icons look; just the background or wallpaper will change.
