GeneralAlas, and alack: my phone is being replaced. Pin

My trusty - and fully working - old Moto G (series 1) which has done sterling service for around seven years is being replaced because it just doesn't have enough space. It's only got 8GB, no expansion capability, and Google have shoved so much bloat into it's poor frame over the years that it's got less than 1GB left.

And I need just over 1GB to install the Here WeGo England maps so I have satnav on the way to a funeral in two weeks. And since my Nexus 7 can't find enough satellites if there is a cloud around, and my Surface is far, far too big to attach to the car I've got to get a new one.

Nothing too fancy, just a lot of space and expansion capability, and maybe enough screen to replace the phone and Nexus 7 as my book reader and games-while-Herself-does-something-and-I-wait-around machine.

So I picked a Huawei P30 Lite: screen is only about 3/4" (2cm) smaller than the tablet, but the whole thing is around 1" (2.5cm) longer, and 1/4" (.75cm) wider than the phone, so it should fit in my pocket. And that 8GB rises to 128GB, with space for a 512GB SD card!
And OK, I'm not over interested in the cameras, but ... 48mp rear? 24mp for selfies? Holy moly batman! My first digital camera was a large-for-the-time 1.5mp and cost more than this whole phone ... OMG | :OMG:

I've bought a case to glue a metal strip onto so I can use the mag mounts in the car, and a nano sim is on it's way from my mobile phone signal provider.

All I've got to do now is install the software and ebooks, music, TV, ... I keep on the tablet (groan).
Plus my contacts / calendar, but Google should handle that for me.

Oh, and learn to use it ... bugger. There's always something.
