It sounds like you're using dual-system sound, which of course would be preferred for best quality, but there are some on-phone options to consider.

For example there's the Shure MV88 (which I personally find disappointing; it's designed for recording loud sounds like rock concerts and you really need to boost the gain for quieter sources). There's also the Sennheiser Ambeo binaural ear-worn mics. Much better sensitivity and sound quality.

For run-and-gun I've found ear-mounted binaural mics to be a pretty good solution; the stereo effect is amazing but you have to remember to always be looking where the camera is pointing. If you turn your head for a moment to look at something else, it'll be noticeable in the recorded audio. There are miniature dead-cat ear muffs you can use to reduce wind noise outdoors, which work well although they make you look funny (especially in summer).
