Using a QR Code Scanner on your Samsung Galaxy A90, A70, A50, A30

QR Codes can be found on every corner these days. Be it on magazines, posters, business cards, job ads, W-Lan routers and much more. QR stands for Quick Reaction and includes a special barcode, which is arranged in a square and contains text information.


Due to the special technology, a lot of text can be stored in a barcode. Such a QR code can only be read with a special reader.

This reader is your smartphone, in this case a Samsung from the A series, i.e. a Samsung Galaxy A90, A70, A50, A30, A20 or A10. You only need a suitable app on your smartphone to capture the QR Codes via the camera.

Such an app is already available on your Samsung Galaxy A90, A70, A50, A30, A20 or A10 and we would like to explain how you can use the QR Code Scanner on your smartphone with it:
