Photoshop image has good image quality on mobile, identical Lightroom original does not (maybe Fuji x-trans related?)

A problem out-of-focus image corrected in Lightroom with severe luminance adjustment.  Lots of pixellation artifacts on mobile (resembles jpg artifacts). Same image roundtripped to Photoshop as (luminance edited) smart object, with no additional editing, and sent back to Lightroom as .tff is much more faithful on mobile. Important to note the two images are identical in Lightroom.

Additional factors: Fuji X-E1. Possibility of X-trans influence? I don't have another digital camera to try to eliminate this as a possibility.

It seems to me Lightroom mobile must process the images not based on their Lightroom-rendered pixel-values only, but "something else".

I shouldn't have to create a duplicate Photoshop image to get good mobile image quality!

I am currently working with Adobe support on this, will update as appropriate.  If anyone can shed any light, please do.

No it is no problem about x-trans sensor . I am using xe-2, xt-1, xt-2 and x-pro2 non of them has shown up problems related to your post. I think it is problem of to large files compressed to mobile devices sites cutting out your picture to the natural resolution of your device the problem should be gone.

Thomas, I think you're missing the circumstances: the Lightroom-edited photo roundtripped back to Lightroom unaltered yields good image quality on mobile, but the "Lightroom-only" version is horrid.  The photos in Lightroom appear identical.
