    Background and themes

    Your device comes with a default background, but you can adapt the Home screen and lock screen to your own style using wallpapers and themes featuring different colours and patterns.

    A wallpaper may be used without changing any of the other elements of your Home screen and lock screen.

    Themes can include a wallpaper, a screensaver, title bars, and a sound scheme that all fit together to create a unique look and feel for your device.

    To change your wallpaper

    1. Tap Settings > Wallpaper > Xperia Home.
    2. Select a wallpaper and tap Apply. Select an option.

    You can also use a photo as your wallpaper. Instead of selecting a wallpaper from the option shown, tap Photos or Album . Choose a photo and tap Set wallpaper .

    To set a theme

    1. Touch and hold an empty area on your Home screen until the device vibrates.
    2. Tap Themes.
    3. Choose an option:
      • To use an existing theme, select the theme, then tap APPLY THEME.
      • To download a new theme, tap GET MORE THEMES.

    When you change a theme, the background also changes in some applications.
