    Why does the Droid 3 suck?

    I got the D3 back in August. My girlfriend loved the keyboard and got one last month. Both phones are complete rubbish. I can't do a damn thing on them! Can't ever find GPS. Camera crashes the phones after taking nearly an entire minute to take a picture. Call quality is absolutely terrible. Text messages resize pictures in the event they ever do take any. The only thing this thing is good for is texting. There's no damn way I've gotten 2 bad phones. The odds are nearly impossible, unless they ALL suck this bad. I've seen unsolved instances of every problem, but never together. I got the worst of it all. Twice. It's crap.

    Odd my droid has been above my expectations. Have you tried rooting it? Installing a different camera or different location app. If so it (not trying to be rude honestly ) could be you. There has been many accounts where the user isn't using the phone correctly. Yes yes I know rooting it is not correct use. But it can fix a lot of standard issues ie bad camera or gps.

    Ya try rooting I felt the same way you did when I first got my d3 and after some reading before I gave up I tried rooting and loading a custom rom and applications...

    My phone is awesome now...running steel droid 3.0...things are only going to get better since the developers have just started their work on the d3

    How do you use yours? This isn't my first phone, so either I've suddenly gone retarded, or this isn't a freaking phone. (sorry if this sounds rude, I'm very frustrated by this phone, and know enough to know better than calling it a PEBCAC issue)

    My Droid 1 I had nearly 2 years worked flawlessly. Camera, while not a very good quality, took pictures, saved pictures, didn't crash my phone, was able to be sent without being resized to look like a Razr sent it. My GPS found my location every time unless I was in a tunnel. Yes, even when my phone didn't have any signal, it knew where I was, and didn't get me lost and miss important job interviews. The call quality made people think I was talking through a paper towel roll, but I heard them fine. I wasn't asking "what?!" at every sentence. My only complaint with that phone was the keyboard, and I'm about ready to just switch back.

    My biggest question is, does the GPS work on custom ROMS?

    Shouldn't have to root to fix problems - I root and flash new roms for my enjoyment...

    OG droid didn't seem to have as many GPS issues.

    Well it fixed a lot of the bug issues I was having and made the phone much smoother and faster all around, I think that is the fun in it!

    You got 2 bad phones. After the update my phone has been nothing but amazing and im not rooted. Camera works as it should and I've always had to resize pictures, even on my OG DROID.

    Yeah definitely two bad phones.. my Phone worked amazingly when I got it, and root and flashing ROMs to make my already awesome phone even more awesome. Even though it's going bye bye once the Nexus is out.
