Sprint Galaxy S5 Reloaded with March Security Update

Sprint has rolled out March security update via OTA for the Galaxy S5  handset. With build number G900PVPU3CPEI, the March security update for Sprint Galaxy S5 also provides performance enhancements including a resolution to stability related issues and bug fixes.

Like all other updates, the March security update for the Sprint Galaxy S5 has been rolled out via OTA. Hence, it will take few days for the message notification to appear on display depending upon the region.

The March security update measures 285.90MB in size, which is a bit high for a monthly update. We are sure Sprint could have integrated new features into the update. The update page clearly states about the existence of new and enhanced features. Moreover, if you install the update the performance of your device will be improved to a great extent.

The catch to install March security update in Spring Galaxy S5 is that you need 4865MB free storage space. The screenshot shared by a leading tech portal displays a message regarding the requirement of over 4GB space.

However, the disk space of the concerned phone seems to be full. We wonder why 4GB storage is required to install an update of 285.9 MB update file. The notification on the update page also directs users to either delete unwanted apps or move the files to cloud storage. You can also move all important images, videos and other files to your PC, laptop or tablet.

If you can view an update notification, you need to proceed by following the instructions. If you are unable to view a message, then you need to wait for few more days. Alternatively, you can verify the presence of the update by navigating to Setting | About device | System Updates page.

You should make sure to establish connectivity with WiFi before the download of the update to avoid excessive data charges. Furthermore, you should also charge the phone to 100 percent before the download and installation of the March security update.
