Keyword planner traffic estimates -1 bid for all keywords questions

I am wondering how is the 1 bid for all keywords influencing the estimates from the keyword planner , especially if we use it to estimate all match types for a keyword. Will it grant more impressions to the exact match or phrase match ? 


What if in the estimates we use only the broad match and the exact match, will the broad match estimate increase to compensate the search terms that the phrase match would have captured ?


Does it show mobile+desktop traffic too in the "review estimates window" , meaning that if we have -100% for mobiles the estimates are inflated ?
