Hi, I'm having a lot of issues with my exports on photoshop. The picture looks exactly the way I want it to look on my computer, but always looks way to dark on my phone. 
I'm using a Mac with a DELL U2720Q display and my pictures look alright on my Macbook screen as well as the Dell. 
This problem is only happening with the pictures I export. If I'm browsing the web or instagram and I see barely any difference between my displays and my phone, which leads me to believe this isnt a calibration problem, but an export problem. 

I tried rgb, srgb. jpeg, png. Same problem with all possible combinations.

The only way I've found to correct this is by adjusting the gamma value of the picture to 1.5, which corrects it on my phone, but makes it way too bright on my computer. I have no idea why this is happening or how to fix it..
