Jobs put up this graph in the keyboard, saying the iPhone is smart AND easy to use, but he removed many of the things which makes it smart, so I really think it belongs in the SE quadrant with the other feature phones.
Providing more options will invariably move it over to where the rest of the smartphones reside.

But the argument is flawed.
"smart", to me is more capable. The Treo is more "capable that the iPhone (today) So it should be "smarter.
And as far as ease of use, a regular phone with hard buttons is "easier" to use that an iPhone - no screen to touch/turn-on, or button to press. Just dial the digits and press talk/green button. Done.
Also, does anyone notice that Jobs put the iPhone in the farthest corner and height - That the iPhone can't get any better - its' the smartest and easiest to use. But that really isn't true (see Meredith Viera).

Recent calls can be in or out. According to some posters, there's no way to tell which are outgoing and which are incoming. Sometimes people need to remember. And this is usually marked on most phones in some way.

I just can't resist sorry....
USA Today reports that early iPhone adopters are overwhelmingly happy with their iPhones.
In one of the first such studies, 90% of 200 owners said they were "extremely" or "very" satisfied with their phone. And 85% said they are "extremely" or "very" likely to recommend the device to others, says the online survey conducted and paid for by market researcher Interpret of Santa Monica, Calif. The firm surveyed 1,000 cellphone users July 6-10.
Of course, early adopters are a special population and may not reflect the satisfaction of later consumers as a whole. Some other interesting statistics that came from the studies are included:
• 51% of buyers were switching to AT&T from another carrier
• 35% of carrier switchers paid an early termination fee (avg $167) to switch
• 3 of 10 were first-time Apple customers.
• for 4 of 10, the iPhone was their first iPod
• New iPhone owners expected to pay about $35 more a month than their previous cellphone.

iPhone is a pretty but fatally crippled smartphone. Not even if 101% of iPhone users thought it was the second coming would it make it half as capable for my actual needs as my 680.
Yes, I know Surur has been posting anecdotal evidence of iPhone horror-stories, but I've always thought that most iPhone users will be too undemanding (or even technically-challenged!) to notice either the design flaws or bugs.
