As much the Nexus 5X can be a great smartphone, it has received a lot of criticism for its subpar performance and a general slow downs during the day to day usage. Fortunately, owners of the device will be happy to know that now they don’t have to keep reboting their Nexus 5X every couple of days to get it up and running again. Google just released the March security update for the Nexus 5X and along with it, the company confirmed that handsets will be receiving some much needed bug patches as well as performance improvements.

Nexus Community Manager, by the name of Orin, took to Reddit to reveal to the community that the March security update will incorporate bug fixes meant to positively impact the Nexus 5X’s overall stability, along with improving its performance and connectivity. Later on, he went on to further add that some of the bug fixes will address issues such as the general sluggish performance, improvements for both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, fixes for bugs specific to carriers and the issue of the DND next alarm disappearing.

Additionally, Orrin made it clear that most international users as well as major carriers in the US, will be employing the MHC19 build. Other carriers/ variants will need to use the MMB29V build.
