    Why? How big is your phone? I always carry mine in my pocket. Often don't realize it's there and have to reach back and check I didn't drop it or forget it. Everyone I know rides with one. It's really not a big deal.

    Jersey pocket so you can pull it out and either record or pretend like you're recording road raging car drivers-tends to mellow them out very quickly.

    In my middle jersey pocket in a Ziploc bag with a credit card and some cash, with the screen facing inward to protect it in the event of a crash.

    That's about the size of mine. No problems at all sticking it in your pocket.

    I use these instead of ziplock bags. Super heavy duty and last forever. Fits my phone perfect plus room for cash, change, chapstick, etc.

    Palm "companion phone" to the rescue for those of you who are phablet users (But apparently only works on Verizon where you can share the same number across multiple phones.)

    A little smaller than my iphone se. Went with the se over the 8 because of size. Fits in a pocket no problem.

    most modern smart phones are way more waterproof than we need them to be on the road. I just keep mine in my back pocket.

    On the mountain bike at unfamiliar locations, I use the Topeak system, with their weatherproof case, mounted on the bars for navigating (usually Trailforks). If I rode the road bike in such a place that needed such complex navigating as MTB, I'd mount it on the roadie bars too. but so far not needed

    It's not water that you need to worry about for phone protection. It's sweat which can be very corrosive. My jersey is soaked with sweat at the end of a ride. Like others I put the phone inside a sandwich size baggie in my middle back pocket. The baggie is wet from sweat at the end of the ride. No way I want that on my phone.

    I use this https://strawfoothandmade.com/products/ride-wallet and love it. Made in USA!
    It has a divider in it so on one side you can have your phone and the other $$$/cards. Then it goes in my jersey pocket.

    I ride with close-fitting mtb shorts, they have an outer thigh pocket which fits my phone quite well.

    I ride with it in my jersey pocket both road and mtb. I probably should put it in a bag to protect it from sweat.

    Which is one more reason I carry it in my saddle bag, not my jersey.

    Kind of morbid, but one of the reasons I carry a phone is to summon help-phone in your saddle bag on your bike when you're broken and battered in a ditch or worse and separated from your bike is a less than ideal situation.

    I have the newer Note and have no issues in any of my jersey pockets. I don't feel it at all and keep it in the right pocket for easy access. Only thing I won't put anything else in that pocket if I don't have to.
