Is this OK? Don't I also want the Smartphone bot to crawl my website?

Here is my robots.txt:
# If the Joomla site is installed within a folder such as at
# e.g. the robots.txt file MUST be
# moved to the site root at e.g.
# AND the joomla folder name MUST be prefixed to the disallowed
# path, e.g. the Disallow rule for the /administrator/ folder
# MUST be changed to read Disallow: /joomla/administrator/
# For more information about the robots.txt standard, see:
# The Web Robots Pages
# For syntax checking, see:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /administrator/
Disallow: /cache/
Disallow: /cli/
Disallow: /components/

If you go to the Coverage tab, what does it say at the top right?

Is it one or the other?
Does it matter which one it shows?

The screenshot in my original post is from Settings > About

I'm just wondering if it only lists one, or if it is supposed to list both (or more than 2)?

My website is Joomla. I believe it's responsive. Search Console shows 0 errors in the Mobile Usability section, all pages are valid. But the Mobile Friendly test linked above is saying that it is not mobile friendly.

I have to get a new website I think.
