If you are shopping for a TV that will also work great as a large PC monitor, this is a really nice comparison review. The site also has in-depth reviews for other TV shopping criteria as well. It's the most informative and well-composed resource I've found, and pretty comprehensive for the major brands and models.

I'm going for the HTC One A9 instead of Nexus 5X
I'll admit it was a bit of an impulse choice, but the A9 just seemed to hit a sweet spot of my must-haves, namely a great price for a mid-to-upper range phone with fingerprint reader and good camera -- and runs Android 6 Marshmallow.

At $399 (pre-sale price for this week) it is actually cheaper than the 32GB Nexus 5X, not counting the $50 pre-sale play credit.  (I actually already have $40 of play credit that I don't know what to do with... so another $50 didn't have much appeal to me.)  Finally, the A9's premium finishes and expandable microSD storage were nice plusses that helped seal the deal, and the Uh-oh protection is nothing to sneeze at.

Probably my main concern with the A9 is the battery (2100mAh vs 2700mAh in the 5X) and that it's not on USB C.  I really have little faith in the microUSB connectors that seem to fail me all the time.
A smaller thing I'll miss is the front stereo speakers, but really when I think about how often I've made good use of my current HTC One's front speakers... it's not much at all.  When do I actually watch media on my phone?  Usually it's when I'm in a setting when I would be using headphones anyway (i.e. on a bus/train/plane).
Lastly but not least, while I do prefer the pure Android experience and the prompt updates for Nexus devices, my experience with HTC's Sense augmentations have been positive, and I have faith that they'll continue their good track record of updates and the openness to their development community.
