Media Reviews

We have been using the app for quite some time on a Samsung Galaxy S8 and previously on a Galaxy S7 and can not complain. The app does what it promises and what more do you want?

(Galaxy Tipps)

Compared to other black wallpaper solutions, Pitch Black Wallpaper is much easier to use. You just need to install it, confirm your choice and enjoy your 100% black wallpaper.


If you're like me, I am a battery hog with my phone, but since using this app, I haven't had that issue. As you can see, it's super dark all the way around ... this is a battery saver and cool look for my phone

(Total Tech)

Unlike other wallpaper apps, Pitch Black Wallpaper, with its simple approach on color philosophy, lets you go minimalist, but still ensures aesthetics.


Try Pitch Black Wallpaper on Android. A black background makes your battery last longer. Why? Because you just don't need to put energy into something that is dark.


Pitch Black Wallpaper is a great app that you'll have no trouble using, and will definitely help with your device performance and battery drain. Don't think about it - try it out!

Yup yup

Perhaps the only app that works. Thanks to the creators

(Cesar Rocha)

This is an excellent all black wallpaper. It does exactly what it says it's going to do what's up a black wallpaper. Which I love cuz it's easier on my eyes and much easier on my battery. I think that's the biggest seller for this because if you're like me and you use your phone all day long for work the last thing you want is your battery getting prematurely drained because some stupid bright wallpaper
