No it shouldnt. The iPhone sold to millions primarily because of aesthetics. If you made it functional by removing the senseless animations that happen when you do anything, it would not have sold to the same croud as much as it did.
As it stands there are far more people who buy based on aesthetics and sexiness than there are people who just want a functional device without as much of the aesthetic.
Sexy sells and Apple knows it.
