Did you upgrade from Mint 17.x? If yes it can give problems , it should be a fresh install from 18.2 iso file.
Also check integrity of the iso file https://linuxmint.com/verify.php
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.
I am using Mint 18 Cinnamon 64 bit with AMD processor .

Hi :)
both update from 18.1 and fresh 18.2.. Cinnamon.
not relevant, crash on some systems with different hardware...
different grafic, differnt ram, different cpu... and so on.

Treat a segfault as one would a buffer overflow.

What I'd do is not install Mozilla-based javascript https://packages.debian.org/buster/libcjs-dev

and the second system download Lenovo or Motorola drivers for your phone or not connect it to you system.
I have a Lenovo phone myself and had no problems with it and Cinnamon. You might post that second outputt to https://forum.xda-developers.com for advice.

Edit: Your having the same problem in two separate systems if on the same computer could be the cause, if elsewhere...power?

I experienced recently "segfault" on a laptop and cause was one RAM module faulty ( Apacer brand ).
Try a full memory test on boot just to be sure.

Did you install Mint to those machines from the same image?
