The best classes in any application are the ones that do stuff: the BarcodeDecoder, the KoopaPhysicsEngine, and the AudioStreamer. These classes have dependencies; perhaps a BarcodeCameraFinder, DefaultPhysicsEngine, and an HttpStreamer.
To contrast, the worst classes in any application are the ones that take up space without doing much at all: the BarcodeDecoderFactory, the CameraServiceLoader, and the MutableContextWrapper. These classes are the clumsy duct tape that wires the interesting stuff together.
Dagger is a replacement for these FactoryFactory classes. It allows you to focus on the interesting classes. Declare dependencies, specify how to satisfy them, and ship your app.
By building on standard javax.inject annotations (JSR-330), each class is easy to test. You don't need a bunch of boilerplate just to swap the RpcCreditCardService out for a FakeCreditCardService.
Dependency injection isn't just for testing. It also makes it easy to create reusable, interchangeable modules. You can share the same AuthenticationModule across all of your apps. And you can run DevLoggingModule during development and ProdLoggingModule in production to get the right behavior in each situation.

Fix: Correctly emit generated code for binding parameterized types.
