First , in your camera Settings, Enable Scene Optimizer ...Second ,Do the same thing on your camera screen, i put a picture to show you where to Enable it on the camera screen...

 

You will find QR code in the Settings also, just Enable it too

 

This is the best way to scan a document and a code

I would recommend this app ---)https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.simplescan.scanner

by far the easiest to use and share. well worth the pro version. you can send a pdf, sign a document, cloud a document the list goes on.

for qr codes if you have Google set to your home button hold that and hit scan button on the left easiest way I can think of.

Hi Squeakie,

Using Bixby Vision:
1. Launch you Camera app > tap Bixby Vision
2. Allow the Bixby Vision permissions then tap Next
3. Allow the 3 Bixby Vision pop-up permissions
4. Scan the QR Code then tap Go to launch the website
Note: If you are unable to scan the QR Code, try repositioning your camera to get a better angle of the code, also ensure that you have enabled this lens within your Bixby Vision settings. To check this setting launch Bixby Vision > tap the 3 dots > Settings > Toggle on QR Code.
Using the Gallery app:
1. Once you have captured your QR Code screenshot, head into the Gallery app
2. Select the QR Code screenshot
3. Tap on the Bixby Vision icon Bixby Vision button.

Using Samsung Internet:

2. Select the 3 lines bottom right the screen
3. Tap on Settings
4. Select Useful Features
5. Toggle on QR Code reader

6. Head back to the homepage and touch the URL link > select the QR Code icon
7. Tap Allow on the popup permissions
