android why multi records for one contact

hi
i was using iphone 4s
i have one card for each contact with possible multi phone numbers
i just buy huwai p8 which based under android 5
i exported my contacts to gmail acc using itune
then syncronize my contact with huwai
now i found seperate card ( record ) for each person having different phone number
for example :
ali  ahmed ,,,   555-66666
ali ahmed       6666-7777
ali ahmed    888-9999

If the names were identical, you should already have those contacts linked.

If not, long press on a name, choose "Link contact" and then choose the rest of the contacts.

This will "group" all the phone numbers under one name.

Yeah, they changed it in Android 5. You need to go to Edit, then Join.
