Check your EMUI verison before proceed to solutions. EMUI4 and EMUI5 may use different apps!

This is for EMUI 4 (Android 6).
I know many of you guys are using China variants, like BLN-AL10, AL20 and etc. By default, EMUI is not coming with full Google services, how do you get Google Contacts Sync working?

Solution:
Install the Google Contacts Sync Adapter from HUAWEI app store. Its version is 6.0-xxxx, DO NOT use latest version of 7.1.2.

Background
In order to get Google services working on China variants, you need to install following apks:
1. Google Play Services (EMUI comes with an old one, like version 9.xx)
2. Google Play Store
3. Google Contacts Sync Adapter 7.1.2

Issue
I've got a BLN-AL10 with B170 stock ROM and with above 2 apks, I can access Google Play Store and install apps, but all Google Contacts are not shown up in my phone. I checked through Account settings and found it showed "Synced".

This is for EMUI 5 (Android 7).

The final solution for Honor 6x BLN-AL40 (Android 7.0 EMUI 5.0):
1. Clean start: reinstall stock ROM over eRecovery
2. Install Google Installer (same here)
3. Install GMS Core
4. Restart

Just did some quick search and have found that Mate 8 and other HUAWEI phones China variants share the same issue, seems EMUI is broken or something, so that Google Contact Sync is not working on latest EMUI...

I'll try to downgrade to previous version... Meanwhile, blame HUAWEI for its bad software...

I found a way to fix it: there was an app also called Google Contact Sync in HUAWEI app store, version 6.0-xxxxx. I uninstall latest 7.1.2 and install that 6.0 from app store, the contacts are there.
