Not 100% true.. They're setup differently, ie; the controls/buttons. I have both, and after shooting with the 70D, when I grab my 650D, I find my self fumbling to quickly change settings, especially aperture. I really like how the 70D is setup, having the top screen to make quick adjustments, and the wheel on the back, instead of the direction pads the 650D has.
The most I've pushed the ISO is 3200, which is 4x more than I would on the 650D.
That's just ergonomics. Not features, like hardware/software. Ergonomics is completely subjective from person to person. Hard features are not. It either has a better AF system, or not. It either has better video capability, or not. Add to that a few more megapixels (negligible honestly), and a bit better ISO (noteworthy). MFA is a big deal too.

If you can understand the thing, then good luck to you. I find "Canonese" extremely difficult, if not impossible, to follow.
Either manuals were simpler back in my Nikon FE film camera days, or "Nikonese" was easier to learn. Or maybe I've aged!
Reading the manual to know what features you have access to, how to do certain things, is a great way to start with a new piece of equipment. Sure, you can just fumble with your new camera. I've done that. I felt silly when I had to google how to allow one of my cameras function with a manual lens attached, when I could have just read the manual, after having fumbled through menus for a while looking for it in places that I thought made sense, only to find it elsewhere.
