Would You Install A Bullet Or Dome Here?

Look at this Avigilon H4 Bullet installed on concrete:

The solar shield on the bullet here begs the question: Why not a dome instead?

I've seen countless bullets or box cameras knocked out of alignment by bouncing a ball off them or swinging a bag and knocking them sideways. A flush mount dome often mitigates that risk and is a smaller target for tampering.

The cabling here isn't in rigid, and lacks a functional driploop, but does not look like a future problem. Am I wrong?

What would you use here? Why?
