Hi Anton,

I'd say:

- Completions are populated asynchronously and in parallel, and 
based on my experience, using deoplete for several months, I feel 
like the feedback of completion you get from ncm2 is more 
- Fully integrates with UltiSnips, so you can have snippets 
expansions in the arguments of the completion results, which is 
really nice (you can see this in the GIF of the ncm2-d for 
example, that my cursor jumps over each argument of the 
autocompleted function).
- It just works. You don't even have to tweak the settings or 
variable of sources to start seeing good results. On the other 
hand, with deoplete you're supposed to tweak a lot of settings, 
matchers and ranks before getting solid results.
- Integrates nicely with Language servers that you can get 
results from LanguageClient-neovim, for instance.

If you've never tried it out before, it's definitely worth a try.
