What is the best general ZigBee / Hue hub?

What is the best general ZigBee / Hue hub?

Strange question, but listen to me. I am planning my smart home, I have already received a HomePod as a centerpiece and HomeAssistant for the blinds controlled by a Shelly. I’m looking to expand it with Philips Hue lights for which I would buy a Philips Hue bridge. So far, good, but I’ve heard that although Hue Bridge is Zigbee and can control any ZigBee light (TRÅDFRI, Lidl, etc.), it’s not a good solution for other ZigBee devices, such as power outlets. It’s true? And if so, what should I use as a ZigBee hub that is proof for the future? Will a second ZigBee card attached to HomeAssistant not interfere with Hue Bridge? thanks, try to understand how things work in this world haha
