In have a Huawei phone that came with 32GB. If I add a new bigger SD card what are the implications?
I mean would my installed applications be affected/disappear? Would any configuration any app change/break? Or does it affect only files saved? Not sure if that affects or how the internal storage

adoptable-storage won't work for Android 7.0-8.1 with FBE encryption, therefore nothing will happen to apps.

portable storage allows you to remove MicroSD Card off the device and read data from PC card reader without data loss. If however for some reason windows is not able to detect file system, do not format MicroSD Card if windows ask for it. Instead read MicroSD Card from linux.

If you insert MicroSD Card back into device files will be available as before
