On your existing smartphone, make sure your contacts are backed up to your Google Account, and when you sign in with that Google account on your new phone, your contacts will be available. Make sure all your apps, Wi-Fi passwords and settings are backed up by selecting Settings and then Back up & Restore.

2. Moving to an iPhone?
