Why buy $$$ tripods?

I bought one yesterday at a swap meet for $17 and it is just as stable as my friends expensive* Manfrotto tripod. It's very lightweight and even came with a plate thing that I can't connect to my camera somehow but I think I'll just screw it on. My iPhone X can even balance on it perfectly.

What do $$$ tripods do that this cheap one doesn't?

*He spent a little over $400 for his Manfrotto!!!
