For the first time in 10 years, Chris Ziegler is living without a smartphone. On this special Thanksgiving edition of The Verge Mobile Show, Chris tells Dieter and Dan about his less than favorable experiences in the last couple weeks with Nokia's Lumia 920 and LG's Nexus 4, and why he decided to get rid of both of them. Also Dieter shares what he learned from Facebook's Mobile Developer Day and Dan shares his experiences with the Droid DNA and how the poor battery life prevents it from being his next phone.
