Surely you know that in the West the corporations aren't owned by the government, including the media corporations (if anything, it's the other way around..), so it would be impossible to coordinate lots of propaganda. Western media spends most of their time complaining about how their government isn't doing what they want, or doing things they disagree with (like get into wars in the Middle East, etc). Not very good propaganda, if you ask me.

And GSMArena is located in the part of the world where american and british propaganda doesn't work, so hardly there are so much people to share your views. Here it's US and Britain that are axis of evil.

Google doing everything wrong but no any country has capability to stop this internet giant. This company introduced an easy platform for mobile industry but now it's making Data eater apps by updates. Today, android has been a Data eater and public money looter platform. There is a need of new platform for mobile industry. May be, Samsung would do something. Nearly the 250 mb data is used in every month for updates if somebody don't updates then phone become problem some. This company is doing deliberately in favor of mobile service operators to extract the commission.

And yet nobody said anything when flApple pre-loads it's apps and services on iOS devices...

For those wondering, Yandex is far more popular in Russia than Google, there is no threat to them there whatsoever.

-like for example apple misused this to get away from lots of law suits against it and copy and paste other company designs and troll with patents which should not have been allowed to be established by them

Sounds fishy to me, every single person on the face of the earth can download the AOSP source off the internet, and compile it to whatever form he or she pleases.
China is the biggest example where there literally are NO Google Apps on any android device sold domestically.
Google can't give legal trouble to these OEMs as well as they'd most likely not be part of the OHA, and if they are then they still can bundle whatever the hell they please, they just can't use forks of Android.
