Beware: There is a wallpaper that could potentially crash your Android phone
This wallpaper is the culprit

Avoid this wallpaper at all cost

So, if you receive this picture, never set it as a wallpaper. To check if the bug works on other smartphones, Bogdan Petrovan of Android Authority tried the wallpaper himself on a Google Pixel 2 and it crashed.



He said that restarting the device in safe mode by holding down the volume button during the boot-up did not fix the issue. The solution is a factory reset, but it will wipe up all your data.

He also tried it on his daily driver, the Mate 20 Pro, the unit is not affected.


Out of curiosity, we tried it ourselves on a freshly booted Find X2 Pro with no apps and files. Fortunately, our unit did not crash.

As of now, it is still not clear what's causing the issue. To be safe and sure, just avoid the above-mentioned wallpaper.
