Can you get access to a CLI at root privilege on a smartphone?

You can use Magisk and then Termux, or tap on build number 7 times to unlock developer tools and then tick the slider for enable local shell to get a half backed CLI.

How to use/install Magisk is a whole other ball game though, it's pages worth and beyond the scope of any post I could write.
