How do you tell when your cellphone is too clever

When it refuses to sign into google account, and therefore half of functionality is unavailable. And you try it again and again and...

And the underlying reason? Wrong time/date on the device. Why should time/date matter? Well... https refuses connection because "certificate is not yet valid". Which is quite logical after all, but... I was close to just wiping the phone and starting again.
