A friend had this same issue and she came to me to help out, i have listed below steps on how to go about the transfer the smoothest way possible.
On your Android phone, you should have a and Google account (Gmail, Google Play, etc) signed on on it, and for any length of time the chances are that all of your contacts will be associated with your Google account.
If not, quickly do a backup.
Go to Settings on your Android phone and choose “Accounts and Sync” or similar. Enter your GMail account details and enable synchronisation. Your phone contacts and Google Contacts should now synchronise.
Transfer contacts from Android to iPhone
Open the Settings application on your iPhone.
