Strange logo at phone startup - MX5

instead of meizu logo, appears another one during the boot


Is this normal or my phone could be not authentic?

Meizu MX5

Hmm, looks like a fake Mx5. Check your IMEI online and post the result.


Where did you get the phone from? Of course there’s always the possibility of a non-original phone but I’d rather say (still, a wild guess) it’s running a firmware version specifically branded for some Chinese operator…

Can you please check in Settings -> About Phone which Flyme version does it state you are running? You can find your IMEI there as well

Looks like you are running the C firmware which is from China Mobile, we advise you to install the generic A version which does not have carrier apps.





I installed today, without any problems, the international firmware.

Meanwhile I received a confirmation from Meizu, too; it’s a genuine phone.

Thank you very much!

Basically it is quite hard to fake Meizu phones - at least I never saw a real copy.
Back then there only was a Meizu MX fake, however it came with stock Android, not Flyme.

That is the exact start up screen I have, mine was from GearBest and by the look of the packaging mine arrived in it was sent from China to London and then shipped out to me.

Looks like your connection to Meizufans was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
