The hole-punch camera cutouts on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ is something you can love or hate, but if you have to look at it every day, you might as well play into it with a fun wallpaper that fits it perfectly! I'm still working on my own hole-punch wallpapers and themes for the upcoming S10 series, but Twitter user Matt B and the r/S10wallpapers subreddit have taken their own pinhole templates and gone wild. Here are some of my favorites, arranged by device!

This mesmerizing abstract wallpaper looks a bit like a rainbow and an Aurora Borealis had a love child and I can't look away! The interwoven threads of color paint a tapestry of life and fate across the screen of your shiny new Galaxy flagship.
It is my supreme shame to say I haven't seen the latest DBZ movie yet. I know! I'm scum!! But in my defense, I need to watch Dragon Ball Super first. This powerful wallpaper hides your cameras in a dark corner while drawing your eye to the sheer power coming off Son Goku.
Who's excited for Wonder Woman 84?Who's excited for more female superhero movies?? Who's excited for female supervillain movies like Birds of Prey? Anyway, here's a great crop of the first Wonder Woman movie poster.
Sea of Thieves is a game that's equal parts nostalgia, teamwork, and goddamn magic, and this skull-shaped keyhole-style wallpaper hides either of the camera pinholes in darkness by drawing your eye dead center towards the crew observing the epic battle offshore.
Since this fades to black at the top edges, this wallpaper is good for all of the Galaxy S10 variants, one hole or two. And who couldn't use some gravity-defying webslinger awesomeness on their home screens?
This may be a "random photo from Google Photos", but it's makes a heck of an S10 wallpaper, hiding your cameras inside that hanging ledge. It's part motivational poster, part daredevil, and all awesome. Just don't ask me to go free climbing with you, because I'm too young to die.
Borderlands 3 is shaping up to be one of the year's best games, and while we wait, we have this wallpaper from Reddit user u/TheBucko91 to hold us over. Featuring the Mask of Mayhem being used to promote the game, we get to see all of the easter eggs hidden within it along with a glowing cutout for the S10's camera.
Matt B has actually done a whole slew of Daft Punk wallpapers for the S10 and S10+ in various styles, but I like the split helmet look of this S10 wallpaper the most. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go listen to this storm remix of Derezzed for the bajillionth time because it's crack.
This wallpaper has it all: fascinating nature scenes, a little color pop in the form of that mesmerizing lava-looking waterfall, and one encroaching technology hidden as another encroaching technology! There are even versions for both the S10 and S10+, though speaking plainly, I think the S10+ version is superior.
There's a lot of fun wallpapers that work well for both models, but my hands-down favorite remains the Into the Spider-Verse poster, though the Goku DBS wallpaper makes me want to go binge the whole series right now and see the best fighters from across the universe fight it out!
Expand your Galaxy with these powerful accessories
Samsung EVO Select 256GB microSD card ($50 at Amazon)
More than double the storage on your Galaxy S10 and give yourself room for thousands more wallpapers, photos, songs, and videos with this 4K-ready microSD card.
AUKEY 10,000mAh Power Bank with 18W USB-C and Quick Charge 3.0 ($30 at Amazon)
Aukey's 10,000mAh power bank offers the best of both worlds: it charges your S10 at its maximum Quick Charge or USB-C PD speeds, and the power bank itself recharges quickly via USB-C PD.

This is the USB-C cable I carry most often around Walt Disney World, as it's a highly-trusted brand known for quality cables and it comes with a handy magnetic and velcro carrying wrap.
Galaxy S10 and S10e wallpapers
If you haven't gotten all of the black hole memes out of your system yet — or if you actually recognize what a historic achievement this blurry-looking photo of an actual black hole's event horizon is — you can bet your boots redditors turned it into a wallpaper while making the usual Eye of Sauron and Xbox 360 jokes.
Whether you're still raiding gyms in Pokemon Go or are just content to be a casual fan and oh, who are we kidding, how many minutes until the next game comes out?!?! Ahem! Apologies. At any rate, here's an expertly lined up wallpaper with more Pokèballs than I remembered even existed.
The hype for Avengers Endgame is real, so what better way to get ready for the epic MCU finale than with a wallpaper crafted specifically with the S10 in mind? Along with all of our heros in an epic pose, you'll find a circle of lightning from Thor's axe creeping up and creating a circle around the S10's camera.
Sometimes simple is best, and if you just want a nice, easy pattern on your S10's home/lock screen, you'll want to check out this one from u/psyspider. Available in a multitude of colors, this geometric pattern starts small around the S10's camera and gradually gets bigger as it makes its way down the screen. It's nothing super fancy, but it looks great.
This may be a random fantasy wallpaper u/KhaleesiDragonMami found on her phone, but I thank her wholeheartedly for it because this wallpaper is everything! It's got dramatic locales, wizened old wizards, young sword-wielding adventuring heroes, sunset beauty, and some fantastic interplay of light and dark.
Lord of the Rings has many picturesque landscapes to showcase Middle Earth's beauty. Too bad Barad-Dûr isn't one of them. This wallpaper puts you in the heart of the evil land of Mordor, the domain of the Dark Lord Sauron. I agree that pinhole cameras are evil, but maybe not All-Seeing Eye of Sauron evil.
R2 may be the original, but c'mon, ya'll! BB-8 is cuter, brighter, rounder, and he can even give you a thumbs up! Well, some of us think that's a thumb anyway. Whether you're rolling into Disneyland this summer for Galaxy's Edge or chilling in your quiet corner of the cosmos, everyone needs a BB to help them out.
The Galaxy is filled with so many vast wonders, but this cosmic phenomenon is perfectly suited to the Galaxy S10's Infinity-O screen: a black home, sucking up everything in its range with an unending hunger.
Drift away with this creative cropping of the classic drifting astronaut wallpaper, using our Spaceman's helmet to cover the pinhole cameras and the inky abyss of space to help sell the facade. Space wallpapers and Galaxy phones are made for each other, y'know?
The collection so far makes me exceedingly happy I bought a Galaxy S10 so that I can savor the BB-8 wallpaper as I watch the continued construction of the Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World, because the Avengers Endgame wallpaper may be too awesome for one little screen to contain!

Galaxy S10+ wallpapers
Need a wallpaper to help hype you back up before Wizards Unite later this year? Heading off to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios? This wallpaper will make you want to pick up a wand or your trust old hardbacks and re-read the series all over again!
This geometric marvel helps hide your S10+'s pill-shaped cutout by covering the rest of your screen in cutouts of every shape and size, with a gentle gradient easing down the screen for a little more smoothness. This wallpaper comes in four color palettes, but this green/blue model is my personal favorite.
This anime has run away with my heart and I can't even be mad at how OP and adorable Rimuru is. Share your love of Rimuru with the world and hide your S10+'s cameras inside Ranga's star!
There are some Disney hole-punch wallpapers that hide the camera inside Stitch's nose or Mickey's ear, but I like this Rapunzel dangling wallpaper because it's minimalism at its finest and it also is a Disney take on a wallpaper we'd expect more from superheroes than princesses.
While Curiosity actually only has one camera up on its "face", not two, that's not as aesthetically appealing to us biclops freaks, so this Mars Rover wallpaper will let us give the hard-working robot two eyes via hole-punch cutout, but don't let anyone tell you you're ugly, Curiosity! You're a beautiful triumph of engineering and don't you ever forget it!!
WALL-E is a wonderfully moving movie with excellent lessons about perseverance, caring for the planet, and perpetuating the stereotype of Twinkies surviving the apocalypse, but this WALL-E wallpaper is also a reminder that even rusty, old, outdated robots that have scavenged most of their parts off dead comrades can still be adorable!
WALL-E's love interest and kickass egg-shaped counterpart is EVE, the scout robot that suffers through the garbage robot's painfully awkward advances and then learns how idiotically compassionate he is after seeing what he did to her while she was in sleep mode. Anyway, EVE almost fits the S10+'s pill better than WALL-E does.
Before there was WALL-E, there was Johnny5, a robot that got struck by lightning and somehow became sentient. Ah, the 80's, amirite? Nevertheless, Johnny5's proportions are perfect for Galaxy S10+'s dual-camera cutout, and to cap things off, it looks like he's waving to you from the home screen, asking you if he can join you for some hijinks.
Bender may not be the most useful robot around, but he is probably the best one to go drinking with. This foul-mouthed, foul-tempered bending unit is lazy, shifty, and at times downright evil, but deep down inside that 40% lucky robot, he's got a heart of gold— hey, wait a second, that's not his! BENDER!!! Who'd you steal this gold heart from?!?!
The pill-shaped cutout on the S10+ is a little harder to work around, but the wallpapers that do are so, so worth it! Whether you're swinging the gap with Rapunzel or going "hole" hog with the Pill cutout gradient, there's a wallpaper for everyone here. That Bender wallpaper in particular is giving me the itch to use it and then display his vulgar trademark quotes with KWGT.
A big, beautiful screen needs a big, beauty case
Ringke Onyx ($10 at Amazon)
This case's textured elements are more pleasantly textile than carbon fiber, and they extend further around the edges of the phone. Available in Black and Lilac Purple.

The Texan casemaker brings a rugged case with a rock-bottom price to the S10+ with the Urban Ranger, a single-layer TPU case with grit, grip, and 5 fetching color options.
