Samsung Galaxy J3 Features

Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy J3 that features the S Bike Mode. The feature uses the NFC capability of the device to enable the Bike Mode once it reads the NFC Tag on your bike. With the S Bike Mode, the caller is notified that you are currently riding bike and if the call is urgent the caller can choose to press 1. This is some feature which has not been heard of before and does sound like a must have safety feature for those who ride bike.
