Hi ... 

Sometimes when my laptop isn't available, I'd like to be able to take the line out from my Mixer at a gig or practice session & record that directly to my Android Phone which is a Huawei P30 Pro.

What would be the best way to connect that? I could record the Audio on my Phone either in Wav format or lower quality depending on my requirement.

Any ideas ??

What make/model mixer do you have? Most have some sort of RCA out jacks that you could get an adapter cord for going from RCA to a mini jack into your phone. That would be the easiest. You will have to keep in mind how you’ve panned the input channels as you might get sound from just one side.

My Mixer has both RCA + Quarter Inch Jack Outputs. 

But my Android Phone only has a USB-C port. No 3.5mm jack.

So I'll have to pick up a DAC that does USB-C to 3.5mm conversion. But they've all mentioned it'll work for headphones. No one's mentioned it'll work for inputs too.

I'd like to get the best quality signal into my phone from the Mixer.

Most (almost all) phones that have a TRRS in/out for headphone/mic ... Their Input level expects a mic level signal. The line level going in would prove way too hot & would heavily distort.
