Using this approach, the "Apply" button would not be pushed off screen until a filter is selected, so at least the user ...

At my current firm, we normally give the client 3 different designs, each design with a mock-up of mobile + desktop. We work with manufacturers most of the time and to be honest, our clients rarely know what they want until we show it to them. The most useful part of making a mock-up for mobile, tablet, desktop is that you have a set point you want to end ...

Ask yourself first why you need an icon? Rotating one's mobile device is a fairly common and one could argue, intuitive interaction. If people need more room, they often naturally tilt it into landscape by default. I'd argue the icon is completely superfluous. The number of people that would a) be frustrated that things don't fit well in portrait and b) not ...

I would go both tilting rectangle and arrow. The arrows a standarized icon for refreshing/synchronizing so I won't use them alone.

Tabs may take up more real estate, but many apps have been using a pattern that while scrolling down the page, the tabs (or any subheader/button-bar) will slide up behind the main header. A simple scroll towards the top of the page will reveal the tabs. This still allows the user to know where they are within the app, but will give a thumb's worth more of ...

Breadcrumbs are usually there, just not in the traditional sense. For instance, Facebook has a breadcrumb when you use the search on mobile and even on desktop.

The only reason to do it for SEO purposes is to increase the number of web pages. That's a bad UX reason, and that's typically why big brands avoid it. Then again, big brands have SEO handled. So many don't need to worry about it.
