Don't let your home screen fall into a rut — switch out your wallpaper!

Wallpapers are important. They can give our phone a new feel, even if only for a little while. Some of us change wallpapers as often as we change shirts (sometimes to match), while some of us set one wallpaper and forget it, and that's a shame. A good wallpaper can be a pick-me-up, can remind us of better times (and upcoming times). They can show off what's important to us, be it a picture of the grandkids or an emblem of your favorite house in Game of Thrones. In an effort to brighten your screen, and maybe your day, we present an offering of wonderful wallpapers to grace your smartphone.

If you've got a wallpaper you use everywhere, share it in the comments below! We're always looking for something new. Now get your wallpaper picker ready and see what's in store this week.

1. Fractal Portal

What level mage do you think constructed these runes?

There's something mesmerizing about a good fractal. This one conjures up a few different scenes, be it an alchemist circle from Fullmetal Alchemist or a portal to another dimension. This geometric beauty features soothing cool tones and it's ready to grace your phone, tablet, or computer. Just be sure to tell us if it leads you through space and time, okay?

2. Diviner's Orb by ZMasta94

This fiery scene fills me with warmth and wonder.

This wallpaper balances the cold emptiness of space with the bright warmth of the sun, a fiery inferno with the beauty of nature, and the seeming chaos of space with the interconnections of the universe. It's a wallpaper that reminds us to find that own balance within our lives, and to summon our own inner power.

Who said there's no math in nature?

The fractal flower is blooming just in time for spring, and offers a burst of color for your screen. The cascades of of light and the light grids on the edges of the boom draw the eye and softer focus helps play with a few of the fractal's light effects. The water droplets scattering the scene also make us wonder if this is morning dew or a morning shower.

4. Macro Galaxy by zy0rg

A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

This may not a view any of us will ever see in our lifetime, but why can't we dream of a beautiful spacescape like this out on the edges of a distant spiral galaxy? This green galaxy's gold and blue highlights sing out throughout the wallpaper, and blurring lights along the galaxy's wrap-around stars make us wonder what fantastic worlds would circle those suns...

5. Cosmic Roulette by Prelkia

Take your chances are roll the dice...

I'm not sure if these infinitely repeating seals are levels of some super-secure lockdown or just the repetitions of a time-travel rune as you go back to stop some impending doom, but I'd love to find out. The red seals scattered throughout the scene pop, and the beautiful symmetry of this powerful wallpaper make me wanna get the Stargate crew together and see where we're off to this week.
