  3. Check the remaining storage space of your device memory if it still enough and can still store the file size of the incoming update. You can easily determine the incoming update’s file size as it prompts you the exact details. The size may vary, some minor updates usually varies from 100MB to 200MB while major updates also usually varied from 300MB up to 500MB.

Doing so, will bring the device back to its original factory default settings but it deletes your stored data as it technically wipes and cleans out the device memory cache.
  5. Do not ever touch your phone if the updating process is already initiated. Just let the phone sit on top of your table and make sure it could not be interrupted on any part. You should not press any keys, nor turning the power off and or removing the battery. Do not disconnect the USB cable if you’re performing an update using a computer.
  6. Make sure you Galaxy Note 5 has no root in it, and or running on any unofficial firmware. Keep in mind that a rooted and a modified phone will no longer receive any official firmware update from the dealer. Doing so, you will only receive the advisory message that says something like this;
    “The operating system on your device has been modified in an unauthorized way. Try downloading software updates using Smart Switch on your computer or visit a customer service center.”
