I was curious if anyone might look at their images on a cellphone, or computer, or any device they didn't edit the images on to see how they would look to the general public. Despite an accurate histogram, a calibrated screen, and an accurate color profile, should I check my images on other devices?

It depends on where you'll be sending your images. If sending to social media, I might want to see how the image looks surrounded by an ocean of white. In that context, you usually need to bump up the contrast and saturation to get something that doesn't look washed out.

Do not get too involved with your histogram when it comes to posting online. Post what looks good when surrounded with white. Nobody cares if your highlights are slightly blown when your images are viewed online. Such images lack enough detail to even tell.
