Just bought Mitsubishi heat pump system, but got ecobee thermostat, what am I losing out on?

I had a good contractor but like many they don't seem to care much about anything software or tech related. He couldn't provide much of an answer of what I am losing out on.

I have a two zone system with 2 Mitsubishi air handlers and a 42k compressor.

My question is, by using Ecobee thermostat I believe I lose nearly all the extra efficiency and speed control of a Mitsubishi thermostat My understanding is the ecm motor and compressor can vary their speed but only if they know a little info such as current room temp, new setting, maybe even outdoor temps also.

Am I correct with this? I dont think they will give me a hard time to swap them out but I would like to be accurate with why I am asking. I also would like to get their cloud offering also which I believe requires a couple of extra modules.

Thank you in advance!
