Could you provide a minimal reproduction scenario in a plunker / share more info about your build?

platformBrowserDynamic is well exported from @angular/platform-browser-dynamic, see:

Apparently, we're having the same issue. Only happens on Android Phones with OS 4.4.4.

Angular Version 6.0.2

I just had the same issue in a project I'm working on. We're using Angular 5.0.2 and Webpack on Windows in an IIS/ASP.NET project, with our primary browser as Chrome.
My issue randomly appeared after rebooting my PC and loading up my dev environment again (no code or configuration changes).
I managed to resolve the issue after a couple of attempts at starting the project (in Visual Studio) by also browsing to the the app URL Microsoft Edge. It loaded find. I then did a hard refresh (Ctrl+F5) in Chrome and it came good too.
Note: we manually start and leave running Webpack in separate command window, but start the actual application from withing Visual Studio.
My guess is Webpack crapped out behind the scenes and needed some time and a hard refresh in the browser to get the correctly compiled code to the browser again.
