My experience is mainly on centralized exchanges. But I did use iDEX for few trades and cost on transaction fees are higher than centralized exchanges since you have to pay the transaction fee several times. But it was never a big price to pay considering benefits I got. Also cost could be lower than those of centralized exchanges for bigger trades.

Another problem is that all DEX (decentralized exchanges) out there are ERC20 based Exchanges, Means You Can only Trade Via ETH Pair as of Now.
