    Hmmm... That's weird that b181 is on may and b190 is on April. But it might be different depending on region, not just build number

    Mine too is April. I really like this phone but I will not buy another Huawei if they are not going to be more serious about the updates.

    You can try to contact Huawei customer service and explain that you want better updates or else you won't buy another Huawei phone. If enough people complain then they might listen.

    I received the following reply from Huawei, which makes me hopeful at least an update is coming:

    "We widely appreciate your preference and hope you are doing well.

    In regards of the information you provided us, we want to make of your knowledge that currently updates are rolling out in scheduled OTA updates. You may not receive the update first as it is being rolled out in waves at random, but you will receive an alert once the update is ready for your device. In regards to this, we believe it is better to wait for the OTA update for best possible update capability.

    We appreciate your patience as we continue to work to make the Android update great!
    -041817
    We hope you find this information useful.
    For Huawei our customers are the most valuable.
    We thank you for contacting Huawei, and remain at your service."

    Am also of this mindset, and it's worst because I also have a Nexus 6p which I upgraded from and I get spoiled by security updates. Granted most of the exploits will never to used in a real world attack but my motto is "prevention is better than a cure" holds true here with my mobile devices just like it does with my physical health

    If you want monthly security updates then Huawei isn't for you. You may be better off with a Pixel or perhaps blackberry.

    The carrier Galaxy lineup also gets updated quicker than Huawei, though not as fast as Pixel.

    That I was well aware of before purchasing, but if they want to compete with Apple and Samsung they need to get their updates in check

    My turn to agree with you. While having each update is not absolutely necessary, 4-5 months of no updates is not either.

    There has to be a happy median where at least I know that Huawei is showing some interest in keeping the phone somewhat current.
