Creative wallpapers that use the Galaxy S10 hole-punch camera properly

The Galaxy S10’s redesigned display has been a hit with many users. Still, the selfie camera does hog a relatively significant portion of the screen in the upper right corner of the phone. Rather than dismiss it as a design flaw, why not incorporate it into your phone’s wallpaper?

How? It’s easy. Read on, and we’ll show you some of the coolest and most fun hole punch wallpapers you can add to your Galaxy S10 today.

With famous robots and other icons making an appearance, here are some of our favorites — feel free to download them straight from this page. Otherwise, you can find the S10 Plus wallpapers here, the S10 and S10 e wallpapers here, or on Matt B’s Twitter page. Also, feel free to thank Matt B for his good work while you’re at it.

Wallpapers for the Galaxy S10 Plus

There’s no shortage of characters with two eyes — after all, we have two eyes, and as a result so do most characters. The elliptical shape of the S10 Plus‘s dual selfie-lens fits particularly well with robotic characters, so you’ll find Bender, Johnny 5, and other famous robots here. Unfortunately, you’ll also find a minion, but no-one’s forcing you to look at him. We’re not Facebook. However, we absolutely adore the iPhone wallpaper. Not only is it hilariously ironic, it fits so well.

But perhaps the most pertinent option is using your phone background as a touching tribute for the ill-fated Mars rover Opportunity. Sleep well little robot, we’ll catch up to you eventually.

Wallpapers for the Galaxy S10 and S10 e

The Galaxy S10 and S10e only have a single front-facing camera, but that doesn’t mean they have to miss out on all the fun. As it turns out, there are plenty of one-eyed characters in fiction, or characters with large enough eyes to make it work. Star Wars regular R2D2 is going to be a shoo-in for many, while sequel fans will probably turn towards BB-8 instead. But it’s not all about robots — Pixar characters Mike Wazowski and Baymax are also here to say hello from behind your camera.

There are plenty of orbs from famous images too, making the single selfie-lens a rather fun playground for creative types — the donut from The Simpsons is particularly inspired. The Mars rover Opportunity makes another appearance too, so you have the chance to offer tribute to the little guy, no matter which version of the S10 you’re sporting.

Those are just a few of our favorites at the moment, but there are plenty more out there. If you have an idea yourself, the formula seems pretty simple — just make sure to place the eye, circle, or otherwise right where the camera hole is. It might take a few attempts to get it right, but we can’t wait to see what other wallpapers pop up.

Don’t buy a Galaxy S24 Ultra or iPhone 15 Pro Max. Do this instead

“Do I need all that?” That’s the question on the mind of shoppers before they splurge a now-standard $1,000 asking price for a top-tier phone in 2024. Ideally, that dilemma should be there. The likes of Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max have won laurels for a handful of standout features they offer. But you might not need those standout features at all.

I’ve been on that road, and more frequently than I have the temerity to admit. For some reason, regret comes as part of the $1,200 flagship parcel. That's unless your phone is a part of your creative or work process, or you just don’t care and only want the latest and greatest for the vanity of it. A segment like that certainly exists, but that affluent user base doesn’t dictate the journey of a product.
