Thanks

You won't sync phone <==> phone <==> desktop, you'll sync devices <==> server <==> desktop -so you need something to sync to the server.

The easiest is using an outlook.com account (or Office 365 or Exchange).
Does the android sync icloud calendar and contacts? (I will need to charge my android and check) if so, you could sync to icloud, using the icloud addin in outlook. That could be the second best and free - but the icloud is a separate data file in Outlook, which many people don't like.

Another option is using companionlink or gsyncit to sync outlook desktop contacts to gmail and let the devices sync with the gmail account. This will keep everything in the default data file, just like it is not. Its not free though.

Personally, i think using a sync utility and syncing to gmail would be better, unless you have an outlook.com (or exchange) account.
I think so too . I don't know much about it, but third-party tools are good for people who don't have any experience. user just need to connect your phone to computer and transfer data

Here are the following steps that I used to transfer my contacts from my Galaxy S6 to my iPhone 7 :
1. Go to contact and export your address book to the android device
2. Connect your phone to your computer and copy the .vcf file on it
3. Create a new e-mail and send the e-mail to the address that it is configured on your iPhone device
4. Attach the .vcf file and send the e-mail
5. Go to your iPhone and look for that e-mail
6. Once you found it, open the attachment and upload the contact to your address book

That is all.
