Looking to move from 2degrees to Spark.

Any issues using 2degrees mobiles (Samaung Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy A5 2017) running standard 2degrees firmware?

Will they be fully compatible and/or is it recommended to flash Spark firmware?

Cheers

But is it necessary to access any network features / optimisations or just carrier branding, apps etc?

Thanks, that'll be a pain and hopefully doesn't nerf my Knox.
