Lightbulb Wet port (hydrophilic) or Dry port (hydrophobic)?

Hey everyone!

Curious, would you prefer the water is repelled off the lens (beads up)?
Or would you rather the lens attract the water to form a thin even film of water? (water spreads)

Pros to hydrophobic: repels the large drops, no water blur.
Pros to hydrophilic: no little drops are present, but thin film may distort the quaility and mud might stick around.

Keen to hear opinions!
