I use the Shield because it's faster, and the Sling app streams with much better quality, but I don't know why.
I'm not too concerned about HDR from streaming apps, because it's usually attached to a 4K vid, and I can't stream 4K using my <10Mbps internet speed anyway.
I love my Shield as well because its super fast compared to my Roku3 and streaming stick and I make use of the Plex media server on it and that works pretty well too.
