There’s one very good reason why the brilliant social news site Reddit bills itself as “the front page of the internet”. Because it has the stats to prove it. In 2012, it gained over 37 billion page views and 400 million unique visitors. Some of these visitors were checking out the thriving Nokia and Windows Phone communities found in subreddits such as Windows Phone, Lumia Lovers and Nokia. Why? Because redditors are generally some of the most clued up people on the interwebs.
So, when Windows Phone moderators asked its subscribers why they chose a Windows Phone, we were understandably curious to hear the replies. Redditors answers gave both a fascinating insight into what makes Reddit such a great community and why Nokia Lumia is proving so popular.

“It was £115 for an L800, unlocked. I had android, got fed up of having to install 3000 apps just to customize it and make it look good. I also like the WP simplicity.”
