R5 - 1st curtain electronic OR mechanical shutter?

Got my R5 a few days ago and I really love the camera. Could've been slightly bigger though, the buttons are a bit small, but I'll get used to it.

Out of the box, the camera was set to use 1st curtain electronic shutter. I changed it to mechanical, mostly because it felt familiar from my DSLR.

Which type of shutter is best to use, and in what situations? I know the drawbacks of the fully electronic shutter, but what about the 1st curtain electronic? Are there any advantages/drawbacks compared to the mechanical shutter?
