Wildly inaccurate GPS

I'm comparing capture files from a Nexus 5, captured in October 2017, and fresh files from a Google Pixel. For some reason the GPS on the Pixel seem to be wildly inaccurate.
In the Nexus capture the lowest accuracy I have is 3m, most is under 10m, and the highest are a few at 26m.
On the Pixel I see a completely opposite pattern. I have a few at 5m accuracy, 95% are over 10m, the median is 30, and 10% have a accuracy of +100m
A little over 1% of the elements in the location table also have a "time" value of 0, and accuracy ranging from 250-900m. Have anyone else noticed similar problems? Is it just a problem with the device?

This sounds like a driver case we see frequently - devices report high accuracy, but with a zero time value, which basically precludes accuracy! Suspect this is a driver issue on some phones/tablets.
