I did upgrade to the N5 and gave my wife my L9 lol, Although she's somewhat content with it.
I too was looking at the HTC One line and a couple other phones. I ended up with the N5 be cause it's pure vanilla, a developers phone, Long life of support/updates and It took at the most 5 mins to bootloader unlock, root and flash TWRP. There's so much going on in the N5 thread that its almost impossible to keep up with everything and it literally makes the L9 thread look like a ghost town. There's every ROM and kernel that you could want too. I stayed completely stock on it, except for unlocking the bootloader, rooting and recovery for like a month and then I couldn't resist anymore and had to flash a custom ROM and kernel just the other day.
I've been nothing but impressed with this phone... It's lightning fast and has an awesome screen. Love it!
I know it can be a hard decision but ultimately it's your choice, I recommend researching and comparing them and then deciding what's the best fit for you.
