What is the deal with these gloves?

I love Smartwool, but I just don't understand these gloves. From the looks of the picture, I was imagining that I would be able to pull them up to the elbow. NOT the case. They are cinched on one side, so the fabric is permanently pulled and bunched down around the wrists. Furthermore, the smartphone capable fingertips are squarred-off making them clunky and hard to use on my iPhone. You would be better off just buying their regular gloves for half the price here on Sierra.
