Taking their consumers on a product ideation journey, Intex created #MyDreamPhone creating brand ambassadors in the process. The brand invited users to come up with features that they would want their dream smartphone to have.

Executed across Facebook, Twitter and Google+, Intex aimed at taking the users closer to the brand by giving them the power of selecting features for their future phones.

The contest started on 1st July and the entries closed on 7th July. A team of techies then went through all the entries, figuring out the top 3. The criteria included entries that were practical and doable.
