Firstly, for example, Google Play has different versions of the same applications for different versions of the system, devices, screens, and they may differ in size.

Secondly, the applications preinstalled on the system ... The more built-in and RAM on the phone, the more are pre-installed. If you update such an application, then it does not replace the original version with a newer one, it is installed in parallel so that you can restore the original version. Thus, all preinstalled applications that are updated are in fact installed twice.

And thirdly, the allocation of space for the cache by applications and the system. The more resources, the more applications and the system will use them.

Because they can afford it!

Most applications will adapt to the operating system where they will be used . This is done so that the user can install the desired application, but at the same time it does not lose performance if the device does not have powerful hardware. Even if we turn to the operating system itself: it has certain system requirements, and the better the hardware, the more beautiful the interface, and the more functional the system. Weak smartphones often cannot update to the latest OS versions, or use lightweight / stripped-down counterparts.

So it is with applications: when there are not enough resources, it works and takes up just enough space for the user to be comfortable using it on his device, have not been abandoned or deleted. But only there is an opportunity to get additional resources, the application uses this opportunity, in order to show all the possibilities of graphics, settings, data storage, upgrading old and introducing functions.
