Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Fujifilm XP130, which was introduced in January 2018 is a Waterproof camera with a 16.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor whereas Canon G5 X MII, which was introduced in July 2019 is a Large sensor compact camera with a 20.0MP 1-inch sensor. There is 17 months difference between XP130 and G5 X MII so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger G5 X MII, especially in sensor tech.
Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Fujifilm XP130 is ranked #5
out of 75 Waterproof cameras with an overall score of 52 whereas Canon G5 X MII is ranked #10
out of 63 Large sensor compact cameras with an overall score of 68.
