Just came to the forum to post this, so +1 for the OP. This sounds like a great phone for the price and, based on a comment in a Newegg review, is getting the Android Marshmallow upgrade. Good job Huawei.

Good job Huawei. 6.0.1 has been available for this since the beginning of July. They are releasing it OTA in stages.
You're confusing memory with storage. This phone has 2GB of memory, of which I always seem to have no less than 500MB free at anytime I check it. If you need more than 16GB of storage, just add a Micro SD card.
I don't think I am confused. With Kitkat (android 4.4), OS, system data, apps, app data (for instance emails, browser data, etc.) all eats up the 16gb on board storage. MicroSD expansion is good for photos, music, etc... but can't run Android and many apps + their data from MicroSD cards.

If you need more than 16GB of storage, just add a Micro SD card. Just adding an SD card isn't a perfect solution. For my wife's Moto something Android, the only things you can really move to the SD card are photos and videos.
Sure they take up a lot of storage, but you can't easily put things like apps on the SD card -- at least not on my wife's phone.
