    My Galaxy 7 doesn’t have the set up you describe. The settings are on the top right not “top left” and there is no “Intelligent Features” or “Scan QR Codes” options. :'(

      Software update seems to have removed this option.

      You have to download the updated camera app as that feature is not available on your phone by default.
