Site collection administrator can manage "Site Collection" settings (you will see that at the extreme right on the Site Settings page of the site collection.

A user with Full Control at top level site, can manage Site settings, but not Site collection settings like site collection features, audit settings, etc.

Both of them can modify the content, delete the site/content, add/remove members, etc. The only difference comes when managing settings for Site or Site collection.

Site Collection Administrator is bigger one.
Best Practices says User mustn't be in this group.
