There's really very little disadvantage to futures.

Sometimes when you're in the London session, the spot FX market probably has a bit more liquidity pairs. However, if you're big enough to worry about that issue, then you're probably taking the liquidity in both the markets anyways, at which point the concern is mute choosing between one or the other.

Assuming you're operating on at least $25k, then trade on the futures.

If you're still 'practicing' trade on micros on FX or demo in futures.
