If you are looking to transfer call logs from an iPhone over to a Samsung device, then you can use Samsung’s very own Smart Switch app. The main purpose of the app is to actually help you transfer content to your Samsung phones.
The app is available for free on the Google Play Store and you can load it on your device and start receiving content from your iPhone. You are first going to need to create a full backup of your iPhone on iCloud and you will then restore this backup on your Samsung phone using Smart Switch.
Step 1. Enable iCloud Backup on iPhone
On your iPhone, head to Settings > [your-name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup and enable the iCloud Backup option. Then, tap on the Back Up Now option to create a backup of your device.
Step 2. Choose iOS to Android on Samsung
Install Smart Switch on your Samsung device. When you get to the screen where it asks where your data is from, tap on the iOS option.
Step 3. Choose iCloud Backup to Transfer
It will ask you to sign-in to your iCloud account. Enter your iCloud login details and continue. You will be asked to choose the iCloud backup that you want to restore on your Samsung device. Choose a backup and continue.
Step 4. Call History iPhone to Samsung Completed
Wait for the contents of the backup to be restored on your phone.
When the backup is fully restored, you will find that your entire call logs from your iPhone are now available on your Android device. This should include your call history up to the point where you created your iCloud backup.
While the Smart Switch method definitely gets the job done, it comes with a few drawbacks. One of these is it needs a fast and stable Internet connection as it needs to download your entire iCloud backup. Second, it does not let you selectively restore files on your phone.
If you are fine with it, you can use the method. Otherwise, AnyDroid is the way to go.
