How do you transfer contacts from one Android phone to another?

When I get my new Android phone (whatever it is!), how do I transfer contacts from my Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Does it matter if the new phone doesn't have micro-sd e.g. the HTC One?

You can view all your contacts from PC on google.com/contacts (obviously login with same username as your phone is using). If something is not there it's not synched properly.

When you save/add a contact on the phone you have an option to save it to Google account, phone, SIM and something other thing phone dependent. Make sure all contacts are under Google account.

You can edit all your contact info from browser and they will sync automatically to your phone.

Just sync them with your Google Gmail account?
Or in Contacts select all and share them - by emailing them all to yourself.
You can then open said email on your new phone. Open the attachment, save and import to Contacts. That also works on non-Android phones ... usually.

As Jan says, the simplest way is to ensure all your contacts are synced with your Gmail account. Go to 'people' and see where it says the contact is stored. if it's all Google then all you have to do is sign into your new phone with your same gmail account and it restores the contacts to the new handset automatically for you.
I've had 5 different Android handsets over the years and always used this feature.
