The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

36% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Canon EOS 1D X Mark II is a 1,620,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 580,000 pixels higher than the Canon EOS 80D (1,040,000 pixels).
1210.00 battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Canon EOS 1D X Mark II is a digital camera that takes 1210.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Canon EOS 80D only takes 960.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

3 Reasons For
17% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon EOS 80D has a megapixel of 24.2MP, however the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II is only a 20.2MP digital camera (4MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Vari-angle LCD display Edit
The Canon EOS 80D has a vari-angle LCD display, however the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II does not have a vari-angle LCD display.
Lighter Edit
The Canon EOS 80D is a 730g digital camera. That's 610g lighter than the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II (730g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
