First of all, you need to hit the download button downside and get MobileTrans downloaded on your computer. Install it after downloading. When the whole package finishing installation you are allowed to run it. At this point, connect your device to the computer with USB cables.
When you get into the main interface of the program, there is a green area which is used to Restore from Backups. Click it and choose iCloud.

When the iCloud backup file is done, MobileTrans can help you get all the contacts from the iCloud backup file automatically. In the middle of the interface, check the Contacts option and hit Start Copy. That is all you need to do to transfer the contacts from iCloud to Android.
If you have some basic knowledge about iCloud, then you must be aware that iCloud contacts can be exported and saved as a vCard file. You can use this vCard file to get the contacts transferred to the Android device you want. So that is basically how the second method works out. Now let's focus on the guidance all together.
To begin with, you have to ensure all the contacts in your iPhone have been synced to iCloud already. In order to check that, hit Settings, iCloud and then sign in your iCloud account. At last, turn Contacts on.
Open the website of iCloud on your computer and then sign in your iCloud account. Hit Contacts. In the control panel of contacts, you will see an icon like a gear at the left side in the bottom. Hit the gear icon and then select the option Export vCard. Thus, the contacts can be exported successfully.
Use a USB cable to connect your Android device with the computer. Then your SD card of the Android device will be detected in a few seconds. Open Computer to open the SD card file and then copy the vCard you just exported into the card.
On your Android device, open Contacts app. Hit the menu button next to the main button to get a list. Click “Import/Export” and then hit “Import from USB storage”. Thus, all the contacts in the vCard file will be transferred to your contacts book automatically.
