You can get either or.

If bath temp is adj correctly 2 handles is nice. Highest temp allowed in my state is 120 degrees F. And on tub / shower 112 degrees.
Get one that has easy to obtain replacement parts. The lifetime guarantee one we had lasted 15 years and there was no replacement cartridge available so we are back to the old stems with Delta.
Never purchase the cheapest fixture as they will only last a few years. That goes for all plumbing. You can get cheap fixtures for 35 dollars and good ones are 75 and up.
On one handle faucets if people lean on them they do not last and can snap
