The above is just the Android build, but it should work the same for iOS.
Also, if you have Android Studio and Xcode installed on your local machine you can use eas build --local to build locally instead of using Expo's build service.

After installing it on my phone I ran:

expo start --dev-client

Then I opened the newly installed app on my phone (not the Expo Go app) and scanned the QR code that expo start --dev-client displays.
The JavaScript bundle downloaded and the app started. In the console where I was running expo start --dev-client the following output was printed:

Android Bundling complete 9767ms
Running app on SM-G950F
Finished downloading to file:///data/user/0/com.example.ziptest/cache/
unzip completed at /data/user/0/com.example.ziptest/cache/sample

And the app displayed the contents of the unzipped sample.txt file.
