The highlight feature of the new Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is what the company calls S bike mode. Buyers get a NFC tag that needs to be stuck on the bike. When you sit on your bike, tapping your smartphone on the tag will automatically activate the S bike mode on the device.


In this mode, when the biker gets a call, the caller actually hears a pre-recorded message saying that the person is currently riding a bike. Only if the caller presses 1, will the call actually go through. The mode also supports gestures, and the biker can reject the call using a gesture.
