I would guess you set up an account for these on the Android phone. But why are you asking here? Would an Android board not be abetter place to ask?

Re: how transfer contacts from lumia 520 to android phone

On your Android phone if you have not already done so go to settings, accounts, add account, add the outlook account and make sure you tick" sync contacts"

On the people setting in the Android, go to , "contacts to display" and make sure you have ticked the outlook account as well as the Gmail/ Google account.

If you have contacts saved in both accounts the resulting display will be a guddle of information as there will be duplicated information.

Aside from the slight annoyance of that duplication thus is the beauty of saving contacts, whether to a Microsoft or a Google account, all you need do is add the account to any new device and everything is there.

Once linked to a specific account the contact will sync there and not to another account. It may be possible to backup contacts using an app like Contacts Backup, Remove them (from outlook,com) and restore the backup at which time the app may ask to which account to backup.

 

As I recall Contacts Backup creates a .VCF (VCARD) file on skydrive which you might be able to import into an Android phone or you can export the contacts from outlook.com and import them into gmail.

 

So you have options, but it would be better to ask in an Android community to make sure.

You can export and import. But the easiest way is to just download the outlook.com app, then sync the contacts directly from outlook.com to your phone. http://www.recovery-android.com/transfer-contacts-phone-to-phone.html

Are you really asking the same question as in the first post and did not bother to read the responses?

I just tried Gmail to transfer contacts from Nokia  to Android Samsung galaxy phone, it is very easy. The other option is to manually export contacts from Gmail, then import them into Outlook or almost any other contact manager. This isn't as convenient as actual syncing, because the two databases will eventually diverge without regular effort. But if you don't care about keeping the local version up-to-date, don't want to install another program, or are not using Outlook, it's a better choice.
