7 Reasons For
Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, however the Philips 32PFH4100 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (300Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

20% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 32PFH4100 (20W). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Smart TV Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 supports Smart TV, whereas the Philips 32PFH4100 does not support Smart TV.
Wi-Fi Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 supports Wi-Fi, but the Philips 32PFH4100 does not. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 has an ethernet port, whereas the Philips 32PFH4100 does not have an ethernet port. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

16% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 has a depth of 66.6mm. That's 10.4mm thinner than the Philips 32PFH4100 (66.6mm). 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 superior
The Samsung UE32J5500 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Philips 32PFH4100 has a rating of "A".
