Correct.

Running it during office hours will simply cause a performance issue for the end users, there is no technical reason not to do it and indeed I do this ona regular basis to expedite tasks I am working on.

No, there is no reason why it should.  The online maintenance runs whilst the database is "live" so there may be a slight performance issue for the devices during this time but it's not likely to be noticed.

But it is recommended this is run during low or even no utilisation periods.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

 
Glen KnightCommented:
The maintenance window is between 1am and 5am by default so this is a low utilisation period.  This is when the online defrag runs.

so the long and short is smartphone access should not effect an online defrag right even though mailboxes are being accessed.

One last thing. what happens if you run the maintainance window during normal office hours ?
