While Galaxy S4 comes with the Optical Reader app that lets you scan QR code, Galaxy Note 3 doesn’t have this app pre-installed.
Fortunately, there are plenty of apps that can help you to just do that. For instance, QR Droid (Free) is one that I’ve been using.
Here’s how it works:
- Download QR Droid from Play Store.
- Launch the QR Droid app.
- Now, aim the camera lens at the QR code. As soon as you hear the beep sound, means the scanning is done.
- What happens next is dependent on the types of information stored in the QR code. For example, a browser will be launched if it is an URL. If it’s contact information with a phone number, you’ll be prompted to select either to Add the contact or Dial the number. For plain text, it will do a web search automatically. Anyway, the default actions can be changed in the Settings.
Note: All the items/QR code you’ve scanned are stored in the History.
Note: The steps here were written for Android 4.3 on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005). If you’re having a different model of Galaxy Note 3 or other version of Android, there’s a possibility that the steps and screenshots will be different.
