I guess I have been lucky. I have been using it like this for almost two years with no problems so far, including my previous phones. Maybe it could be the fact of using it like this only in the city. It is still good to know. 💪🏻As someone that works in tech on mobile devices, if you are mounting your phone to your handlebars, be prepared for certain parts of the device to potentially fail, no matter what phone you have. Certain components inside a mobile phone can fatigue at certain frequencies and intensities of vibration. If you're willing to lose a $1000+ phone, then go for it. Just my .02 from personal experience.
