You are right. Sorry, I conflated two things in my various
(a) One is an apples-to-apples comparison: Turn off AGPS, and
    look at the capabilities of the internal GPS receivers. I
    hope to soon do a systematic study of the errors of various
    devices by sitting in the sun for a couple of hours.
(b) Compare device to device (apples to oranges), by turning on
    the best capabilities of each. Here I believe that an AGPS
    device must perform as well, or typically better.
