6 Reasons For
A lot larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE48JU6445 has a display diagonal of 48", whereas the Samsung UE32J5500 is only a 32" TV (16" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

Two RF ports quantitys Edit
The number of RF ports quantitys on the Samsung UE48JU6445 is two, but the Samsung UE32J5500 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

One more USB 2.0 ports quantity Edit
The Samsung UE48JU6445 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity TV, whereas the Samsung UE32J5500 only has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys. Read more

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

Four HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The Samsung UE48JU6445 has four HDMI ports quantitys, however the Samsung UE32J5500 only has three HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.
