You could use an adapter to split the cell phone jack into XLR & 3.5mm. Then just plug in your XLR mic and headphones.

Or you could record double-system audio. Get a second, purpose-built audio recording device like a Zoom, and monitor that while you shoot with your cell phone. It's super easy to match up the audio again in most editing software nowadays.
