4 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Sony KDL-32R503 has two USB 2.0 ports, however the Samsung UE32J4570 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KDL-32R503 has an annual energy consumption of 45kWh, but the Samsung UE32J4570 is a 53kWh annual energy consumption TV (8kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

7% thinner Edit
The Sony KDL-32R503 is a 65mm thick TV. That's 4mm thinner than the Samsung UE32J4570 (65mm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Sony KDL-32R503 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE32J4570 has a rating of "A".
