Short answer assuming a few things.

assuming you are looking at gaining speed up to full throttle from a good squirt of the trigger, and assuming you have the RPM range set properly within the esc....

ESC timing will be more efficient and have more torque yet will yeild the same RPM as can timing, it will reach that RPM sooner as well.

Why.....

The ESC adds the timing as the RPM increases, therefore keeping current draw lower, and retaining higher torque at the lower RPM range due to the reduced timing added to the motor at the initial lower throttle values, adding timing increases RPM but decreases Torque, so with can timing it is all at once so at the lower throttle value your efficiency is reduced as well as your torque.

Endbell timing and ESC timing are both always present all the time in a brushless sensored motor. Maybe you want to know if senosrless timing is better than sensored timing, that is something that could be debated.

The esc timing can be phased in based on RMP, etc., thus the whole rpm doesn't have to be there all the time as in motor/endbell timing. This can result in a motor that doesn't get hot as quick, and as you know heat kills.
