Samsung Galaxy J3 with S bike mode – Is it worth buying?
It has been a while since we posted a tech article on chaaps.com. What caught our eyes is a new smartphone from Samsung that comes with a unique functionality called “S Bike Mode”. In this article we learn more about this device with more focus on the newly introduced “S Bike Mode” feature.
The all new Samsung Galaxy J3 comes along with a NFC tag which one could stick on their bike / motorcycle / 2 Wheeler’s tank or on the helmet itself. Once you the NFC tag in place on your bike, you can simply activate the S bike mode by tapping your phone with the NFC tag ( which is pasted to your bike’s tank or helmet), you could also activate the S Bike mode by pressing the S bike icon which is present on your phone’s quick panel.
The device notifies you when you have an urgent incoming call, you will be notified about the same.
When you have activated the S bike mode on your phone, a pre-recorded message informs the caller that you are riding the bike currently and cannot pick the call. The caller will be asked to press 1 if it is urgent and wants to really speak to the rider – the device then notifies about the urgent incoming call.
Samsung has put lot of thought while building this functionality. The S Bike mode feature makes sure that you ride safe and allows you to pick the call only when the bike is stationary. The Motion Lock feature takes care of this. Whenever there is an urgent call and you decide to pick the call, the Motion Lock feature makes sure that you take the call only when your bike is completely stopped.
