There is an App called iDriveLite for contacts, it is available for both Android and IOS. I am not sure if the transfer will work, bit I guess it's worth a try they say it does:

You don't sync your Samsung contacts with an address book app on your computer? How did all contacts on the Samsung make it there?
As the Samsung is an android device, are you accessing a Gmail account on the Samsung that provides for syncing your Google contacts over the air?
If so, you can create your Gmail account on the iPhone and have access to your Google online contacts.
Or you can try the three-party tool to move from Android to iPhone.

The trouble with using Google or Yahoo to transfer contacts to the iPhone is that you can't really bring the contacts you sync on the iPhone via Google or Yahoo with iCloud. The cloud accounts are kept separate so even if you enable iCloud sync on the iPhone, the contacts which were synced via Google for instance, will remain there. You can instead use this to transfer the contacts directly from Android to iPhone.
Alternatively, have your Android contacts sync to Google (Google is Android's iCloud so sync is rather easy). Then log in to your Google account and export the contacts into VCF files to your computer. Next, log in to your iCloud account and import the VCF contact files from the computer. Finally, enable iCloud sync on the iPhone.
