Meaning of shape: round vs pillow

I buy online and I’ve narrowed it down to these 2:

First [Round: 0.75ct/SI1/G/Ideal](Https://www.bluenile.com/build-your-own-ring/diamond-details/LD12707759?refTab=DIAMONDS&track=viewDiamondDetails&action=sameTab)
2nd [Cushion: 0.81ct/VS2/F/Astor Ideal](Https://www.bluenile.com/build-your-own-ring/diamond-details/LD10409872)

I’ve read that round is considered the best overall shape for gloss, scintillation, etc. So between the two choices above, would the round be better even if the pad is better in all the other measurements? Based on the 360-degree view they’ve given, I don’t see any significant difference between the two, but I’m an uncultured pleb, so there it is. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
