The advantage of Using Third-Party DNS

Phishing Protection – OpenDNS performs filtering to block phishing sites. Modern browsers have built-in phishing protection already

Better security and More Reliable

Speed Improvement – It is not guaranteed that using third-party DNS your internet speed will be increased but it depends on ISP’s DNS servers but in most of the cases third-party DNS server can be faster than ISP’s DNS servers.

Parental Controls – If you have children who have access to your Android phone or laptop/computer, you can create a parental block on specific websites that may not be safe for them. By using a third-party DNS service, you may have more parental control settings than offered by your Internet service provider.

Access Blocked Content Or Bypass Web Censorship – Some ISP block websites through DNS level, if the website is blocked this way (DNS level) then you can unlock by using third-party DNS or with changing your DNS server to a third-party DNS which doesn’t block the site. This won’t always work if your website is blocked with IP method then you can’t get access with changing of DNS.

Note:
I think if your ISP’s DNS servers are working fine for you, and you aren’t trying to do some region block dodging, then just keep using them. Using a third party DNS server means one more entity knows all the websites you visit. If you aren’t that overboard about privacy then that doesn’t matter for you.
