Samsung Galaxy J3 has a cool 'outdoor' modeThe budget Android phone throws in a neat feature to help you see the screen outside.
You probably wouldn't expect a low cost phone to help you read this screen in bright sunlight, but this one does. Samsung's Galaxy J3 comes with an optional on the flight setting that boosts screen brightness when you're hit with full daylight. You won't want to keep it on for long, though. Too much power running to the screen will sap your battery. The five inch phone runs Android six point zero software, which is the most current thing about the device. Except for this, which is double tapping the home button to launch the camera. Hardware wise you're mostly looking at entry level facts like a five megapixel camera on the back, and a two megapixel camera on the front. There's a rather slow quad core processor and only sixteen gigabytes of internal storage. And some variants have eight gigabytes of storage. But the good news is, battery life is actually pretty great. Plus the phone handles well. There's plenty of room for external storage and you can pop out the battery to replace it. And did I mention the Plus this phone is cheap. The J3 here comes in at under $200, about 150 pounds, and around 330 Australian. [BLANK AUDIO]
