Is 16gb enough for iPhone SE

I was curious if 16gb is enough for average phone user,I dont know how much of that is system memory.Im not taking photos so often,videos even less.I will have few smaller games and maybe one bigger,as I use my android tablet for games and afaik there arent some major differences between popular games/apps for android and ios.Beside that i will have about 20-30 songs when I get the phone and by the time it will reach like 80 to 100 maximum.Maybe I will download a movie or two if I go to travel somewhere but not for every day use.Currently there are not SE with 64gb in stock and I need a phone in like 10 days max,so I doubt they will get them.Also Im not sure about clouds or any other apps like that if they can help with memory saving.

Time for some apps to go

16GB is OK for me
