    If you bought your phone through Verizon, apparently you aren't privy to it. If you're on another carrier it's in your app drawer. The optical reader itself is just the camera.

    Those missing the optical reader.

    Are you not getting this detect text option available in the menu when viewing photos?

    Wow. This is a feature they have in their commercials right? Allowing you to scan a business card....

    Anyone on big red NOT missing the app?

    I have Verizon and its missing, its missing on all Verizon phones! A co-worker has the optical reader on his S4……he has Sprint, and it’s a Great app! Not only can you scan business cards etc…… point it at a page with typed English sentences and it recognizes individual words and provides their definitions. The Optical Reader app can also be pointed at foreign language text to get the English translation by either hovering over the word or by taking a picture. This could be the deal breaker for me! I have a 2 week period to return the phone. I did contact Samsung and was told if I wanted this app I would have to send my phone back to Samsung for the installation. WTF

    I actually never knew it even had this feature (googled to see what people were talking about when I first read the post)... However, just another example of verizon meddling. I get wanting a degree of control of the device software you sell...so add your bloatware. But to widdle down the features of a device for no reason...frustrating. But, I am rooted now so....lol MINE!
    macuser and Mujibar like this.
