The idol 3 is a fantastic phone. Two things I adore about it are the camera and durability. For one thing the camera is perfect. Although low light photos aren't the best, but that's basically the case for any phone. THE DURABILITY CAN'T GET ANY BETTER!!!! This phone is too durable. It has fallen down my stairs twice, and I have dropped it over 30 times, not even a crack. It is more durable than any other phone!!! MUCH BETTER THAN ANY other phone.

when your phone will be infected with Trojan , which was created by the same people who create ''kingoroot'' and other such programs , and the phone becomes a ''useless brick'' then I will tell you why you do not root your phone.
but then you're going to drive a car without engine

I absolutely love this phone, it more ridden meets my usage and durability needs. I cannot find however, if it's MyDP enabled, before I buy a slim port cable. I'm looking to use my phone as a streaming device to my big screen. Has anyone done this with the idol 3?

With outgoing calls, I have to dial the number at least twice, even with speed dial. Then, there's been several friends who've told me I've "butt dialed" them when I haven't called at all.
Everything else I love - the sound is awesome, memory is great - now, if it only would just act like a phone....

I didn't know its good to play around with. The only thing is you cannot change the font like you can on a Samsung phone. I tired so hard to find that gesture is there anyway to change the font possibly?

I have the idol 3 and ever since first using the phone I've had a problem. After 15 minutes into a call (received or placed myself) I can hear the other person but they can't hear me. This is every call all the time. Anyone else had this problem and any solutions? Phone has updated software.
Very disappointed with this phone. Although the screen is pretty and the sound (other than as a telephone) is good, ever since the latest Android update it will not save a local copy of any text message sent by voice, either via "ok google" or any other method. Also, it does not work well with a Bluetooth ear set, cutting out a lot. I guess it goes in the trash and I will go back to my other phone. This one was a waste of money.
Very good phone. Actually, it is very light. However, the phone gets very hot quickly.
