      Microsoft Lens vs CamScanner opinions
      Some users think Microsoft Lens is a great alternative to CamScanner, some don't.
      Doesn't clear up text nearly as well as cam scanner. Doesn't have nice folder/file management system (have to save immediately as an image, or to OneDrive). Feels like cam-scanner 0.5 in terms of functionality.

      JohnFastman One of the few - perhaps even the only - open source scanning apps for Android. Gives comparable results to Camscanner. Needs OpenCV Manager to be installed, but that's a formality (the latter requires no permissions.)
