 Yes, Google does have that information.  No, Google does not share that information.
 She doesn't have a Galaxy phone if she doesn't have the Google Play Store on board.  Samsung makes a lot of junk, especially outside its key Galaxy brand, so I'm not surprised by the experience.
 I don't see any doom and gloom in this article, but feel free to inject so you can write another scandalous piece on Apple's latest "enemy."
 The overall appearance of this render is very Galaxy-esque because of the curvature of the corners (it's a more broad curve like on Samsungs) and the roundness of the back cover at the edges, which is strongly reminiscent of the S3 and S4.  I don't think it'll turn out looking like these.  The day Apple uses a clearly asymmetric design on the front is the day it snows in Hell.
 No you're flat out wrong.  Android can be used however by whomever.  Android with Google Play Services (what is sold as Android on most handsets) has certain requirements as you can see from the article.
Your use case is not typical for most smartphone users. People generally spend a lot more time looking at the screen than making phone calls. For me personally I spend about an hour on the phone each week, but I spend about 3 hours a day looking at the screen whether I'm on the internet or using an app. I expect I'm atypical as for how little I make phone calls, but the bias is in that direction.
DED your chart doesn't show the information you wrote in the article. Just FYI.
 There was an article on AI not long ago by none other than DED that stated that Samsung's flagship S4 and Note series equaled 2/3 of the volume of the iPhone.  I don't think it's possible that all of LG's, Sony's, HTC's, and Motorola's flagships' combined sales don't equal the remaining third of iPhone sales, and all of those flagships have the large screens you dislike so much.  But let's say you don't think the sales of flagships will quite equal the iPhone's, so...
 Here you go Soli.  I calculated the size of the bezels of all the devices on that list.  It's not perfectly accurate because I made the calculations assuming all the devices have flat sides.  The first picture shows them ordered by side bezels smallest to largest.  The second is top/bottom bezels smallest to largest. The iPhones have reasonably small side bezels as of the 5/5s, but the top and bottom bezels are relatively enormous thanks to the home button and requirement...
 Now you want to reduce the bezels.   People want a larger screen because of the benefits like better readability, a more immersive experience, and more information viewable at once.  They have decided that those benefits outweigh the decrease in one-handed usability.  That said, larger screens than what is on the iPhone can still comfortably be used with one hand, though maybe less comfortably.  The Moto X is the prime example.  It's well within the range of one-handed...
