I did the same and concur with OP thus far.
One note I would add is that the conversion to 12 bit 4:2:2 suffers slightly compared to 10 bit 4:2:0. There is noticeable banding in 8 bit luma and chroma ramps with the Shield at 12 bit 4:2:2 compared to other devices such as the Oppo 203 and Fire TV Stick 4K. 10 bit 4:2:0 from Shield is much cleaner and comparable to the other devices running 12 bit 4:2:2. For this reason, I am leaving Shield at 10 bit 4:2:0 for the present time, which, unfortunately, precludes frame switching.
I don't typically do exhaustive comparisons of PQ between devices, especially if I don't see anything off the go on patterns that jumps out as being wrong. I did cycle a few 2K SDR clips from Alita: Battle Angel
on the Shield, Oppo, and Fire TV and deemed the quality on all three to be adequate for my purposes, although there were differences. PLEX server, MKVs, PLEX and Kodi clients where available.
I didn't see anything on HDR patterns, but it was far from a thorough look.
