While I'm busy exploring the wonders if Android L (via CyanogenMod 12 nightly builds) on my OnePlus One, I decided to try the idea of blogging from it. I'm not impressed with Google right now.
Even back when I used Android 2.3, Google has neglected its own Blogger Android app for quite a long time. Back when I tried it, it didn't even have a full editor and had a few bugs. After enjoying the new material design that a lot if apps have now, Blogger for Android sticks out like a sore thumb. It's really disappointing.
I want Google to do something about this. They can do both of the suggestions or just do one. I'd like to have a better mobile app with material design and a full fledged editor, or I want the web post interface to work well on mobile. Either way I want a better editor for mobile.
If you all haven't even noticed yet already, I am making this post from their mobile app. I can't format the text the way I do on the web interface and it shows very well here.

First off, I have been busy lately with the holiday season. I've spent a lot more time with my family this time around than in previous holiday seasons. Therefore, I've given them more attention than keeping up with my computer.
Second, I've been very mobile lately. Because of the lack of time from spending time with family, friends, etc, I also have been very out-and-about lately. I haven't spent much time actually sitting at my desk at all in the past few months. I did get myself a OnePlus One back in November, and I have been using that phone ever since. I still have all of the posts about that phone almost ready to be submitted anyways but they still need to be proofread and edited for any noticeable grammatical errors.

Yesterday, OnePlus finally had a milestone in their overall story of the OnePlus One. After months of saying that the invite system would disappear, they are finally making progress. Although, the invite system is still around.
Everyone should know the core reason behind the invite system. It was an easy way to limit the demand as a result of the lacking supply. Demand for this device was overwhelming. According to OnePlus, they are "selling every phone we make". Despite this, they really have been hyping up their new "FlagShip Killer" despite their ongoing inability to meet demand. Well, this device isn't exactly new either, but that's another issue in itself (that isn't very important right now). The pre-order system was a different way to buy the phone. instead of having an invite, which ensures that your new phone will arrive within the next week (or just a little after), you instead reserve your spot in line, receiving your device right off of the assembly line, as soon as you can get the phone shipped to you. Some people were reporting at the end of the (extended) order window that their device will arrive in 8 week. Two months, and perhaps a couple of days, until you get your device.

The reasons for why I need a device upgrade are already well known. I have a Android 2.3 device from LG, and I really do need an upgrade. Not only is the CPU very slow, but there's no space on it either. Now more than ever have I been looking keenly on new devices. I narrowed down my choices down to the OnePlus One or Nexus 6.

The news of the release date comes just after the second, known attempt to pass through Sony's Quality Assurance testing was completed.
Given the length of time that had gone by since it was announced to be in QA, roughly two weeks, many had begun to wonder if it had failed again.
No need to fear now though, as it will be coming:
