Sounds like a ConsoleKit/systemd-logind permissions issue.
How are you logging in and what desktop env are you using?
I'm logging in under my normal user account. My desktop is KDE.
Using the same hardware, same user, same DE, I can mount the phone using
mtpfs, which works more often than not (but sometimes doesn't and then
does after retrying). So it wouldn't seem to be a permissions issue.
