Are there any negatives to hedging currency?

So lets take EQQQ as an example. NASDAQ 100 in GBP.

So buying this in GBP saves on FX fees, right?

Well you can also buy EQGB which is the same instrument bar the fact it is hedged against currency risk.

My question is why would you not always buy EQGB over EQQQ…what is the downside of hedging the currency?
