How to Apply a Solid Color as a Wallpaper on Android

Like it has happened always, mostly every Android device out there ships with some beautiful default wallpapers which the user can use to set as the background. If yours is a Google Edition phone or tablet such as Nexus 4, Galaxy S4 or HTC One, then those wallpapers are bundled by Google, and apart from that, every device has wallpaper bundled by their manufacturers. While there’s no problem with the default wallpapers, some prefer a solid color wallpaper which is less distracting than those landscapes or digital art forms.
