Default 16 gb storage & KitKat (?)

Any active user that may share opinions on the 16 gb storage?
Considering with it is no longer possible to move apps from/to external sd-card, wondering what amount of internal storage reserved for the apps.
I m htc OneX owner at the moment (international, 32gb) and it has roughly about 2gb for apps, 25 for user and 5 occupied by system.
267 mb out of 2gb app storage is free despite many apps in the phone storage (i.e. internal sd) in my case. I don't know exactly the real size of all those apps though, but surely it is not less than 4 or 5 gb including all their data and cache.
Would be great If someone could share how it is looked in Z2 with a screenshot. Thanks in advance.

I got the Z1 but I'm pretty sure this is how it looks in the Z2 as well

As you can see you get almost 12gb of space out of the box and you can use them for anything you want, there are no restrictions, my older xperia had a limit of 2gb for apps too which sucked, glad they got rid of that.

When I read the specs of the phone it said out of the total 16GB, 12 will be usable.
