Those of you eager to prove that you have the best phone home screen wallpaper, you might want to get in on this action.
Comic writer Kevin Church, a self described Star Trek and Star Wars obsessive, decided to pass the time by asking people to send him screenshots of their phones' home screens so he could grade them.
He started with his own, of course.
Show me your home screens. I'll go first. https://t.co/kLmf3ZCkFH— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549556883.0
And then the submissions poured in.
Here's one with a dog!
@Kevin_Church https://t.co/wNKvJbfbxX— Darlene (@Darlene) 1549557117.0
And the judge has decreed...
Good and minimal. Has a dog. GRADE: A https://t.co/QCNQxArTxG— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549557369.0
Here's another submission, this one distinguished by... umm... a really long tongue.
@Kevin_Church https://t.co/ksvUhQRpeV— Erica Henderson (@Erica Henderson) 1549557166.0
And the judge has decreed...
Too many icons for my taste, but placement is solid. Good Sun Bear. GRADE: B+ https://t.co/2IXWJCC9p8— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549557396.0
(We kind of agree with him here.)
Here's another submission, this one featuring some really cool art.
@Kevin_Church Featuring gorgeous art by @AndyMichaelArt https://t.co/sxvufvHOyZ— brentt is that one valentine’s candy nobody likes (@brentt is that one valentine’s candy nobody likes) 1549557286.0
Unfortunately, that same art is obscured by too many icons, so the judge decrees...
Aw, geez, so many icons in one spot. I can't check out that sweet art. GRADE: C- NOTE: See me about folders and pl… https://t.co/DrzsN01jO4— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549557465.0
Hey look, it's Lynda Carter!
@BrenttHarshman @Kevin_Church Lynda keeping it classy https://t.co/X3BazV74J2— Andy-Life Equation (@Andy-Life Equation) 1549557761.0
But there are problems with this submission as well.
Too busy! I can't see The Best Wonder Woman in all her glory. Good folder usage, though. GRADE: C+ https://t.co/Twgrec0p1D— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549558102.0
Here's another, this one considerably more organized than the previous couple of submissions.
@Kevin_Church https://t.co/ztAjELcu60— 𝔞𝔪𝔟𝔯𝔬𝔰𝔦𝔞 (@𝔞𝔪𝔟𝔯𝔬𝔰𝔦𝔞) 1549557587.0
It appears Judge Kevin is pleased.
V organized. Good KH wallpaper. Wonder about Play Store being in the nav bar at the bottom, though. GRADE: B+ https://t.co/KbtGxT0kj7— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549557742.0
This submission is beautifully organized.
@Kevin_Church https://t.co/Rxn7Zkh6lC— Hagai Palevsky | he/him (@Hagai Palevsky | he/him) 1549557603.0
That discipline certainly paid off handsomely for this lucky contestant.
NICELY done, very organized. Good pop-culture references. Only issue is the contrast on the time/date text and the… https://t.co/nY1Cemo3L0— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549557802.0
This one has a glaring issue.

JUDGE KEVIN HAS SPOKEN!
What is with people putting Settings on their home screen? THAT'S HOW YOU GET HACKED, KIDS. Still, solid organiza… https://t.co/NRKhbC4Z4E— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549557936.0
We have to say we dig the color scheme on this one.
@Kevin_Church https://t.co/4PODe7E53z— Matt (@Matt) 1549557717.0
GOOD color work (much like @bigredrobot, but without the busy background, which I wish I could see more of) and the… https://t.co/Bopobn755X— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549558028.0
What's even going on here?
@Kevin_Church https://t.co/uFcVvl2TVd— Jim McGrath (@Jim McGrath) 1549558015.0
Try again later.
Court is adjourned.
Covering Mean Gene Okerland is a crime. GRADE: F https://t.co/KLD9AfvHZb— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549558276.0
This one is rather messy...
@Kevin_Church My icons never ever stay where I put them. Just a fact of life now https://t.co/6u3wst0Nxo— Nicholas (@Nicholas) 1549558798.0
...a feature that no doubt influenced Judge Church's ruling.
You're trying to kill me with this. GRADE: D, even with the good placement of the icons in the nav bar. https://t.co/tQEZe6PcvY— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549561796.0
This is creative!

AND THE JUDGE CONCURS!

The judge was pleased with how his afternoon went.
Thank you for sending me your homescreens for grading. This ends today's class. Office hours are tomorrow from 1 until 3!— Kevin Church 🖖🏻 (@Kevin Church 🖖🏻) 1549562310.0
