Nobody uses a phone that is not a cell phone....there is a 100% chance that if you say phone in english everyone will understand its a cell phone. This is 2018 not 1998

手机is cell phone 电话 is phone. Duo uses cell phone to translate 手机 so we can differentiate it with 电话。Also we're learning Chinese here!!

I do not completely agree with you, but if somebody has to wonder where his telephone is, it will most probably be a mobile one. A fixed one will not be lost quickly.

"on" = "on top of" in this situation.

Your phone is on top of the table" should be a valid translation.

As a German native speaker I intuitively use the word smartphone (almost all cell phones that are currently used are smartphones). While I'm not sure if the word smartphone is actually commonly used by native English speakers it should be a proper translation.
