Updated marshmallow. Following are the observations.
1. Phone is butter smooth in operation.
2.Ram management does not seem to be great. Only 1.3 GB is available on first boot. On use of a number of apps reduces to 500 MB or less. However, importantly despite of lesser ram none of the applications lag or hang.
3. Heating is reduced. Temperature does not go beyond 36 degrees even on continuos heavy usage. Used to go beyond 40 in lollipop.
3.upto 5 fingerprint can be set up and fingerprint can be set up as app lock. However after phone is in idle condition for long does not unlock with fingerprint and sometimes asks for pattern as additional security.But this happens only sometimes.
4. Sound on speaker is reduced. Volume level needs to be raised to full unlike in lollipop. Not as loud as earlier in lollipop. Hope update improves the same. Not a major con for me as I use headphones more than speaker. Not too bad though.
4. Sound quality on headphones seems to be the same but loudness is reduced.
5.All apps after installation ask for permissions when used for first time. If any permission is not granted apps crash or do not open. Even contact manager didn't work when few permissions were denied.
6. Charging time is the same for battery. Battery back up seems to be same as in lollipop for me.
7.Reset after installation of marshmallow is better to be done for best performance
I did a factory reset before and after installation of marshmallow.
My recommendation is to go for the update if your priority is performance. Performance of phone has definitely improved and is extremely smooth after update , except for audio which may be set right in future updates.
If audio on speaker is your main priority you may wait for sometime.
Thanks to lenovo for providing marshmallow, but release an update soon to set audio quality back to top notch as it was in lollipop.
Lenovo guys please respond to our queries after the update the phone quality degraded....pls fix this update ASAP

After updating my vibe x3 to Android 6.0.1 . I have noticed may changes. They are :
1-Ram memory was decreased from 1500 MB to 900 MB because of fingerprint scanner option where we can more than 2 fingerprints.
2-We can secure our apps without downloading any fingerprint applock applications from play store by default we can secure our apps
3-Battery was draining fastly because of marshmallow
4-Speaker Sound was reduced for shake of our future purposes to avoid speaker problems
5- camera is not good

Not finding any better experience comparing to Lollipop OS in Vibe X3, you can update till last update that was 51 MB, then don't upgrade it Marshmallow.
After marshmallow update the following problems are noticed on my vibe x3:
1. Free RAM is now low at 800Mb. Before update it was at around 1500 MB.
2. One touch clearing of recent apps not working for the first attempt many times. I have to press once more to clear the apps.
3. Battery drains fastly.
