    Every time I unlock my phone these characters pop up:
    (cant post like, so im not sure how to show you the characters...)
    Ive done a virus scan (yes, not just apps but files as well), and it turned up clean. Did I just accidentally change a setting?

    Following. I'm having the same problem with my Note 4! It must have just happened today because I haven't noticed it before. I was able to get a screenshot. Let me see if I can post it.

    Try removing z camera by z team if you have it.. That fixed a buddy's phone if that's not it go through recent updates which is what led us to z camera on his..

    I've similar problem with Lenovo K3 note.
    Recently there are some messages that are getting displayed in Chinese. These messages appear at random times, not at specific action. I've not installed any new app nor do I have z alarm.
