How to identify android apps calling out to China?

LarryLarry All-Knowing Sage ✭✭✭✭

I purchased a Lenovo M10 Plus 3rd Gen android tablet for a client and started to configure it for delivery.

My SonicWall TZ270W has geo-IP blocking enabled on both LAN and Wi-Fi.

During one of my configuration sessions, I took a look at the firewall log, and found multiple instances (more than 50 in a 3 hour span) where it was blocking responses from China - mostly from telecom company IP addresses.

I realize this is a SW-specific forum, but can anyone tell me how to determine exactly what app or function is "phoning home" so I can disable it?
