Here's How to Scan Documents On Android
Recent years have seen some major advances in the resolution and overall quality of smartphone photos. Nowadays, smartphone cameras are not only replacing traditional cameras for most people, but they also provide the resolution and fidelity needed to replace document scanners.
One of the best options for scanning a document is using Google Drive on your Android device. All you need to do is open the Google Drive app, tap the "+" icon in the lower right corner, select "Scan," and tap "Allow" if asked to give Google Drive camera permission.
You can then use Google Drive to take a picture of your document and use the cropping tool to make sure you've captured the edges while eliminating any extra background imagery. If you need to take another photo to properly frame the shot, or if you have more than one document to scan, follow the steps again for each photo.
If you use a de-Googled Android ROM like CalyxOS or /e/OS, or want an option with more features, open the Google Play Store, search for "scanner," and choose one from the many options available, such as Microsoft Lens or Adobe Scan. Once you've found the app you want, install it, open it, and follow its on-screen prompts to begin using.
