What’s the best method out there to move your iPhone 7 ( or 6S) contacts to Android?
Today we’re showing the simplest tricks to switch between mobile platforms.
1st Method: Synchronize your contacts with Google
Before everything else, you need a Google account to be able to properly use an Android smartphone. If you don’t already have an account, go to Google main page and select “Create Account”. You can do this directly from your smartphone although the Desktop environment is easier to use.
Once you’ve set up a Google account, take the iPhone and select “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” from the Settings menu. There you will have to enter the details of your Google account. Press “Add Account”, select Gmail and fill your details.
Shortly, you will get a question regarding which Google elements you wish to sync. Make sure you check “Contacts” and then your iPhone will automatically start syncing contacts.

Now you need to access gmail.com, click on “Mail” then choose “Contacts”. Now click “More”, select “import” then “Choose File”.
