Why not a single update since release ?

I bought this phone because after reading the write-up on it by Paul I thought it was going to be supported. However, I haven't seen a single OTA update since it's release. I've seen updates for the other 'different' variants of the 5c but not our NEM-L51C432B102; e.g. see here for  NEM-L51C10B121   http://www.gizrom.com/b121-honor-5c-android-6-0-ota/  .

Why not ours ? I must admit I buy many chinese phones and know they're not the best at regular updates but with this one we haven't even seen a single update and the security path of May 2016 is worrying.

I've now updated from B102 to B120 using OTA package from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/honor-5c/development/fullota-upgrade-packages-models-nem-l51-t3473110 . Followed procedure outlined and all went well with no loss of user data. Apart from the Android Security Patch (found in 'About') updating from May to Sept 2016 haven't noticed any other differences. Also have no idea why Honor did not supply this under their own  'Updater' app (built into the ROM) as an OTA.

After update my Build number is now NEM-L51C432B120.

new OTA update here https://forum.xda-developers.com/honor-5c/development/fullota-upgrade-packages-models-nem-l51-t3473110 

Update takes  NEM-L51C432Bxxx: to B130, EMUI to 4.1.2 and android security patch to Dec 2016.

Again nothing from updater app on phone so if it wasn't for xda would have missed 2 updates already. Why put an updater app on the phone if it doesn't work ?
