In practice though, I though GPG was used to encrypt a randomly generated AES key, because symmetric ciphers are much faster than most asymmetric ones. There's no way to conduct a chosen plaintext attack, because the plaintext is a tiny fragment of random data with no particular significance.

I don't. Every time I open an app on my phone, it has a non-negligible probability of causing some other app from being evicted from memory. Web pages seem to be mostly immune to this problem. I tried several different Reddit apps, but I always end up going back to browsing Reddit with Firefox, because it's so much less of a hassle to pop open another tab and look something up on google or Wikipedia.
