✔ Best Answer
Your camera resolution shouldn't be the problem but I'd vary the resolution and see if that changes anything just to make sure . It may be your QR code app or there's too much glare or you're doing the scan from an angle instead of straight on. There's some info here:

Or maybe it's the phone itself. You also might check for similar complaints from other users on sites dedicated to the subject or to your specific model.

You're welcome. Perhaps the scanner app chooses its own resolution but if not try lower resolutions too. 8 megapixel seems like a lot for a simple scan.
