      No issue if you use an anti-vibration adapter. Quad lock and SP Connect both do them. Both are designed to reduce high frequency vibration which effects the cameras stability system, so enabling users to use their phones safely on their bikes. I use SP Connect system and have had no issues.

        I strap on an I Pad since its bigger screen is easier, and safer, to read while moving.  Don't know if phones suffer from this, but the I Pad just stopped functioning at temps over 100 degrees F (38 C).  The I Pad was betwen the handle bars and exposed to the sun.  You might want to fashion a little cowl to shade the phone if this happens;  It has the side benefit of making the screen easier to read.
