cross draw or lefty?
I carry it on my left side and generally use it from there as well.
I use an open-top, single M4/M16 magazine pouch by Condor. It has MOLLE straps that can be attached to any belt. That said, my phone is usually carried locked in the trunk of my car. My greatest hope is that the battery goes dead before I have to answer the damned thing. Texting is disabled. I have never taken a selfie.
Don't know/Don't care.
Even though I use it far more than most people, my phone isn’t a “carry” item for me - as much as possible it’s something I have nearby.
I have a smart watch to read messages or check caller id for an incoming call (by default I prefer to call people back later but I can also answer on the watch if it’s important and I can’t get to the phone).
When I do carry it, I go with a left pocket.
I’m currently transitioning away from jeans to modern work pants with thin/light ripstop fabric and several discrete pockets. With these pants I keep the phone in a pocket above/to the left of the knee and the traditional left pocket is usually empty (I find having a phone there restricts movement too much, but I will use it if there’s no other left pocket).
Like others, my method of carrying my cell phone varies with what mode of dress I'm in. In the mornings, I'm usually in athletic attire because I go to the gym 5-6 days a week, so I won't have many pockets. So I will be carrying my phone in either my sackpack or my EDC bag during the summer. Of course during the winter, I'll have a jacket to carry my phone with. At work, since I work in the police department, I'm wearing 5.11 trousers and polo shirt, but I don't like the way my phone gets all out of place in my cargo pocket, so I use a Maxpedition CP-L phone/radio holster. So in work clothes, it's ok to use a holster and doesn't look dorky. Off duty, I'll carry it in a cargo jeans or cargo shorts.
I'm surprised that more companies haven't explored the thigh/knee pocket option on casual or semi-casual work pants - it is a comfortable, discreet location and doctors have suggested that you absorb the least radiation from your phone in this location (especially when carried screen-in). Ideally, I'd like to see such a pocket be made of an elastic material that holds the phone in place so that it doesn't flop around and twist around sideways.
I'm a lefty, but I carry my phone on my right side and draw it with my right hand.
I'm right handed and carry my phone on my left. Something more important is hidden on the right side.
I made a kydex holster with belt loops and a holster for my Gerber Centerdrive with an articulatible hinge

In my pocket. Don't like belt holsters. They restrict movement

Gotta put mine in a holster. My pocket real estate is much too valuable to carry a phone. For the past several years I've been swapping between 3 custom built holsters. One elephant and 2 cow.
Left front pocket. It's usually the only thing in there so it's not a problem.
I made mine with movement in mind. It is low profile and flexible.

Personally, I find that a phone in a front pocket restricts movement far more than a belt holster. A phone in a back pocket isn't cumbersome, but is in the way when sitting. A have a few pairs of pants with a thigh pocket, which is a great place to put a phone, but, except for those pants, I find that a belt holster is less cumbersome than trying to carry a phone in my pocket. YMMV.
These are a few of my favorite cases:
Cu case (can’t remember the maker)
Thin Otterbox and left front pocket. I've clipped poles and walls, tried to squeeze between parked cars... and knocked my phone off my belt too many times for me to ever carry something that expensive so exposed.
My work pants have cargo pockets, so at work or after work the phone goes in a cargo pocket. When out most places the phone is in the pocket of a jacket.
I hate large phones, a couple of years ago I tried the Galaxy S7 Edge, it´s not a large phone compared to many but I even found that too big for me to comfortably carry....... I´m om my 2nd Samsung Galaxy A2 2017, it works as a phone, holds my music and takes respectable photos. I use a clip on phone cover for protection.
Galaxy S10 in a Nite ize pouch on left hip.
..............as little as possible.
I used to carry my phones in a belt holster; pockets were already full of stuff and I didn't want to add any more bulk. Last couple of years though, when on my feet, I just put it in my back pocket and that works out fine. If Im at my desk (office or home) it's just sitting on the desk within arm's reach.
