Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.

Unfortunately neither Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 nor Samsung WB35F provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Sony WX500's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Samsung WB35F's 2.7" screen.
In addition to the size advantage, Sony WX500 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 WX500.
