As far as I know, the phrases "a little", "a little bit" and "a bit" can be used for meaning "for a short time". So, for meaning "Can I use your phone for a short time?", can I say these sentences?
"Can I use your phone a little?"
"Can I use your phone a bit?"
"Can I use your phone a little bit?"
Context: Let's say my phone ran out of power and I need to look at something on the internet using my friend's phone, or I need to make a call. Or let's say I went up to a random person on the street.
By the way the usage of "a bit" is more common in this kind of sentences in British English compared to American English. Am I right? This is what Oxford Dictionary also says.
