Part 1: Transfer contacts from Motorola to Samsung Manually or use apps

It is pretty obvious that using the manual approach is a very tiring and lengthy process. It demands that the user have a very high patience level and all the time in the world on his hands. This method will exhaust you quickly and become annoying in a very little time.

It needs to be installed on both the source and destination devices. Follow the steps below to know how to transfer contacts from Motorola to Samsung.

Step 1.Once you have it installed, you will be required to select “Export to Galaxy Device” from the source while keeping the app open on your destination Samsung device.

Step 2.Next, you will have to select the data(contacts) that you wish to transfer to your Samsung device. After selecting desired data you will have to hit “Transfer” and the devices will begin communicating.

Step 3.The transfer time will depend upon the size of the data being transferred.

Both of these approaches have their fair share of shortcomings some of which are:
