After playing quite some time with ColorMunki's software I must say that it has a few advantages over DisplayCAL (it changed name in the last version
1) Speed - it's very fast to get a basic, good looking profile in ColorMunki
2) ADC (automatic OSD settings adjustment) is great for getting the initial monitor settings right. It doesn't work everywhere and in some cases (like on Dell S2716DG) it will cause the monitor to soft-brick on sleep/poweroff, this requires a full power cycle and resets every setting in the OSD so I had to read the raw values with softMCCS to get back what ColorMunki actually set. This is the monitor's fault since it also reacts like that on brightness changes in softMCCS and I had it on 2 different ones.
3) Profiles that require heavy gamma corrections look subjectively better - even when the results are measured with DisplayCAL the gamma response seems better with ColorMunki's profile:
DisplayCAL on the left, ColorMunki on the right. While ΔE seems higher in ColorMunki's case look at how the measured gamma (V) actually behaves - it's closer to 2.2 in the darker shades, and as I said it just looks better subjectively
DisplayCAL has killer features though: ReShade 3D LUT generation, great diagnostics and reporting, a profile enforcer (new in the newest version). I couldn't have used my Dell without it
I'd advise trying out different options in both software suites and generally playing with them - I've learned a lot doing that.
