Since this is a course for English speakers learning Chinese, the more colloquial "Why are you always on your phone?" should be accepted. That's the way an English speaker would say that anyways.
You are correct that the Chinese sentence can be translated TO English in this way. When you do it backwards, i.e. translate "Why are you always on your phone?" back to Chinese, there would be more interpretations like 看手机 / 玩手机 / 對著手机
"Why are you always on your mobile phone" is refused. I am not english speaker.
