How To Change Wallpaper Background Images on Oppo A37 Phones

Changing the wallpaper background image on your Oppo A37 phone is easy and can be done in just a few steps. As an Oppo A37 user myself, I will share my expertise on the different ways to customize the wallpaper based on my experience.


The Oppo A37 comes with ColorOS 3.0 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop which allows you to easily customize various aspects of your phone’s user interface. One of the best things about Oppo phones is the high level of personalization available through the settings.

In this article, I will walk you through the step-by-step process of changing the home screen, lock screen and both wallpapers on your Oppo A37. We will also explore how to use your own photos and the built-in wallpaper gallery. Lastly, I will share some tips on automatically changing wallpapers using third-party apps.

Accessing the Wallpaper Settings

  1. Unlock your phone and go to the home screen
  2. Open the Settings app – either find it on your home screen or access it through the app drawer
  3. Scroll down and tap on Wallpaper under the Personalization section

This will open the wallpaper settings where you can customize the background images.

Changing the Home Screen Wallpaper

  1. Under the Wallpaper settings, tap on Home screen
  2. You will now see a few options to choose a wallpaper source:
  • Gallery: Choose any photo from your phone’s gallery
  • Wallpapers: Select from the built-in wallpaper gallery
  • Live Wallpapers: Pick an animated wallpaper
  1. Browse and select a wallpaper of your choice
  2. You may need to crop the image before setting it
  3. Tap Set Wallpaper to confirm

The selected image will now be set as your Oppo A37’s home screen wallpaper background.

Changing the Lock Screen Wallpaper

  1. Under the Wallpaper settings, tap on Lock screen
  2. Select a wallpaper source:
  • Gallery – Choose from your phone’s gallery
  • Wallpapers – Built-in Oppo wallpaper gallery
  1. Pick an image and tap on Set Wallpaper

You will now see the selected wallpaper on your Oppo A37’s lock screen whenever you lock/unlock your phone.

Setting Wallpaper for Both Home and Lock Screen

  1. In the Wallpaper settings, tap on Home and lock screen
  2. Select an image from the Gallery or Wallpapers section
  3. The wallpaper will be applied to both the home screen and lock screen

This allows you to quickly set the same background image for both home and lock screen.

Using Your Own Photos

One of the best things about Oppo phones is the ability to easily use your own photos for wallpapers.

  1. To select a photo from your gallery, simply choose the Gallery option
  2. Browse and select a photo
  3. You may need to crop or resize the image before setting it as wallpaper

I personally love using my favorite photos clicked on the Oppo A37’s excellent camera as my phone’s wallpaper. You can also transfer photos from your computer to the phone’s storage and use them.

Tips for Automatically Changing Wallpapers

While Oppo’s ColorOS natively supports changing wallpapers manually, you can also use third-party apps for automatically cycling through wallpapers:

  • Daily Wallpaper Changer: This app can automatically set a new wallpaper everyday from Unsplash.
  • Muzei Live Wallpaper: It can pull wallpapers from different sources and transition them throughout the day.

I recommend using these apps to add more variety and refresh your phone’s display everyday!


Customizing your Oppo A37’s wallpaper background is simple and enables you to personalize your device. You can easily set separate home screen, lock screen and unified wallpapers using the built-in gallery or your own photos. Additionally, third-party apps further boost customizability through automatic cycling options.
