Sony look smart, yes in first look the compact and stylish design of Sony is more comfortable for a long-run. One of the biggest advantage of Canon 6D Mark II over the Sony A7III is its variangle LCD display screen that helps a lot and literally gives your more computational freedom compared to Sony A7 III.
Sony A7 III Missing top LCD Display, however its actually top LCD display doesn’t matter to me because I don’t have habit to look at regularly. I know few of my friends a long time pro DSLR users do have a habit of using Top LCD display screen all the time and of a model doesn’t have top LCD they don’t buy it. So, it actually depends on your personal taste.
Both camera do have a full frame sensor inside it but the technology used inside the senor us different.

The ISO performance of the Canon 6D Mark II camera starts from ISO 100-40000, which can then be expanded to ISO 50-102400, if desired. The Sony A7 III arrived with dramatically improves data transmission speed while using the LSI circuit with the Sensor. The Sony A7 III native sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200, which can be further expanded to ISO 50-204800.
Due to the use of BSI tech the Sony A7 III is able to achieve better ISO range and more dynamic range compared to the Canon 6D Mark II. The dynamic of Sony A7 III is upto 14 stops which is better then of Canon 6D Mark II.
3. AF System
Take a look at the AF screen coverage of both the camera. with the help of 693 AF points you are getting almost all the area under coverage.
