    Does the Huewei Ascend 2 barcode reader?

    The phone can not read barcodes. But can it read the black and white squares on most ads and signs?

    One of videos shows that due to the lack of autofocus, it cannot read any of these.

    Try this APP from the Android market.

    It's called RedLaser Barcode Scanner, The author claims it will work with phones without auto focus.

    I actually asked my friend to demo that on his A2, and indeed it does not read the barcodes. Despite the improved megapixelage (yeah...I make up words on the fly ) it was clear that the lack of auto focus keeps the phone from being able to discern the finer portions of a bar code/blocky scan box thingies.

    Are there any programs that can directly replace the camera program, or are we stuck without that feature?

    Pretty sure we're stuck with it...byproduct of inferior camera hardware. Even the most impressive software in the world isn't going to fix that. Which kinda bums me because for some reason...that's one of the features I've really wanted to use.

    This is a major flaw in development which would be nigh unforgiveable if gingerbread wasn't so nice

    Just got my hands on the ascend 2 . It does not read bar codes (1D), but it can read QR codes. A small consolation...

    I'm using ascend 2, pic2shop works for bar codes,but not QR codes. I can't get mine to read QR code unless it is unusually large,I have to scan magazine pages onto my computer and enlarge them-pain

    Confirmed for me. Use Barcode Scanner for your QR codes

    I tried downloading redlaser but it wouldnt let me........as in there was simply no install/download button. Weird. Anyhow, Pic2shop in the market scans barcodes with my A2, however it does not appear to do QR codes.
