Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Samsung WB35F is significantly lighter (197g ) than the Pentax MX-1 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Samsung WB35F nor Pentax MX-1 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors. If weather sealing is a must-have feature for you, check these sections: Top Compact Cameras with Weather Sealing
LCD Screen Size and Features
Pentax MX-1's 3.00" LCD screen is slightly larger than Samsung WB35F's 2.7" screen.
In addition to the size advantage, Pentax MX-1 LCD screen also has a Tilting feature
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels. On the other hand, Samsung WB35F has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to MX-1.
