Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro is crashtastic

I love this thing to bits and pieces. How do I know? I am still using it every day for several hours although I have never seen anything that is as crashtastic as apps on this Lenovo device. It already received one software update, but apps continue to break at an astonishing rate.

One more week and I have to decide whether I can really trust it as a travel companion. Let's check for updates. And there is the upgrade:

Good news: Android now on security patch level December 2015.
Bad news: Still crashtastic

Lenovo believes there is no problem. I think I need to shoot a few videos.

Who labels the security patch level? Is this the security patch level which Lenovi provides by December 1st, 2015? I can't find a reference to an official Google security patch level for December and my Nexus said it had everything out needs, too.

Is this possibly the Lenovo edition of Google's November patch level (or even older)?

Would you mind running "VTS for Android" and share the result?

Yes, I would mind.

So, in the mean time - on December 7th - Google has release the December security bulletin and related update, which will be rolled out OTA these days, taking Nexus devices to the patch level 2015-12-01. I would be very curious what the security patch level on Lenovo devices means...
