This is a delicate situation. If the same phones can be connected to the same app, then you will have the possibility to restore common items like: contacts, SMS messages, favorites, bookmarks, passwords, etc. As for apps and other system related files, that won't be possible even if they do run on Android operating system.

I've tested this on Samsung phones, and it works, therefore I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work with Huawei phones as well.
