    Apple has an app called Move to iOS, which will help you move photos, contacts, etc. from your Android phone to an iPhone. Move to iOS - Android Apps on Google Play
    This may require a working screen on your Android phone to work, though.

    Contacts, calendar events, emails and notes will appear on your iPhone, as soon as you set up your Gmail account, and enable them. There’s a Google Drive app, and Google Photos for iDevices, which allow syncing some of your content to your new iPhone. There are quite a few other Google apps in the App Store as well, if you prefer using these, all of them free.

    For images and other content, take a look at Apple’s instructions:
    Move content manually from your Android device to your iOS device

    Hope that helps.

    My broken Samsung Google Play store ID and my new iphone ID are identical which is my email@gmail.com
    Emails backup from old to new phones doesn't bother me, as I have Gmail IMAP
    Contacts not migrated from the android to the iPhone although I am using same ID which is my email@gmail.com ?
    Android Whatsapp everyday gets migrated to google drive how can restore to iphone ???
    Viber ?

    Yes that can be done

    Make sure the contacts are saved to/ connected to your Gmail account, and on your iPhone enable Contacts for the account in Settings - Accounts & Passwords - your account.

    For your Whatsapp messages, you might need some transfer software. No idea which one’s suitable, though. Sorry!
