I have tried to restore my contacts from a backup contacts Excel file. It seems to go well, but when displaying my contacts it say "noname" for all contacts. It is a Huawei Android phone. Any ideas are more than welcome.

You have contacts with "noname" because the format you used to import is wrongly backed up. However, open the Excel file and then go to File > Save as and choose CSV. After this process, access Google Contacts and upload the file in this format. Google will add it normally. Once the contacts have been uploaded, use Settings > Accounts > Google and enable Sync Contacts for the accounts use to upload them.
