"Presumably you would not tolerate your super-phone or your wonderful Jeep not performing the functions for which you selected them."
While I will grant that later versions of Android have improved, I still read constant complaints about how people can't upgrade their phones to the newest version due to OEM or carrier interference. I constantly read about how the new Android tablets are " Unfinished " or " beta products". In the case of these tablets, the fault lies both with Google and the OEMs because the interfaces look like a proof of concept than a finished product while the hardware itself, so far, tends to have many features that just don't work for whatever reason.
Your description previously implied that nobody needed any of the advanced capabilities of these newer products--in other words, basic and functional is all anybody needs. Plain Jane. I agree that whatever tool must be functional; it must work right. That doesn't mean it has to be absurdly basic.
