I have had problems with this as I am about to upgrade from Samsung Galaxy Ace to iPhone 6 plus. Btu I think it also works with iPhone 7. It Eventually I emailed my phone contacts to myself from my Galaxy Ace (go into contacts on your device / then 'import - export' / then 'send name card via' / then 'select all' / then tap 'send' / then tap 'email' option / then email to yourself.
You will then receive an email with your samsung contacts all saved in the CVS format as an attachment, which will import straight into your contacts on your Mac, iPad or iPhone. Works in 5 minutes and seamlessly!
Another way is try Mobiledic phone transfer program to sync contacts between iPhone and Samsung galaxy.
Note: you need to have your email account set up on your Samsung phone / Apple devices to achieve this! Hope this helps.

Solution 1. Using Move to iOS App. The first method is using Move to iOS app to sync Android contacts to iPhone. Apple released a new Move to iOS app that wirelessly transfers users’ contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books from Android phone to iPhone. But here are some limitations for your devices.
Solution 2. Using SIM card Directly. If the you haven’t cut your SIM card for iPhone yet, you can take advantage of the SIM card to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone. You need to go to your Contacts app and choose Export Contacts to SIM. Then the contacts can be transferred to the SIM card. Now you can cut the card and install it in iPhone, and go to Settings > Mails, Contacts, Calendars, and scroll down to find Import SIM Card Contacts. Now you are able to import the contacts from SIM card to your iPhone.
Solution 3. Using Gmail. Another method is using Gmail. You can take advantage of Gmail (or other emails provide contacts sync function) to sync Android contacts to iPhone.
Log in Gmail on your Android phone, and check the “Sync Contacts” option (If you are first time to use this method.
After Gmail Contacts synced with your Android Contacts, you should turn to iPhone, and tap Settings > Mails, Contacts, Calendars, and tap Add Account. Then choose Google, and enter your Gmail account.
After adding Google Account, you can turn on Contacts, and iPhone will ask whether you want to merge with your iPhone contacts. Click Yes and the contacts will be synced to your iPhone.
