YU looks to You to create a new phone!

The campaign aptly titled, #YUCreateIt started today and is seeking creative inputs from YU fans and users to contribute wallpapers, ringtones, animations and themes. Adding more conviction to its ideology of ‘YUPlayGod’, YU has given the consumers and enthusiasts the rare opportunity to contribute their ideas for YUPHORIA.  YU is dedicated to empowering the consumers by giving them freedom to create their own technology experience.
