All smartphones (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile, Symbian, MeeGo, Tizen, Firefox, Ubuntu, etc.) are capable of reading bar codes. All you need is a bar code scanner app for your specific need.

All smart phones read barcodes since it uses the phone's camera. All that's required is the app. Depending on the App you want to get, just make sure they make that App for that type of phone (ex, iphone, android, BB, etc)

For Android, I recommend this app : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.scan.android.client&feature=search_result#?t=W10. It works with QR codes too, but you need to have internet access to be able to use it.

Google Goggles recognises QR codes and much more. And you can enable history to keep track of the codes you scanned.
