Contacts should be synced to gmail. the moment you sign in with your gmail account on your s3 the contacts should be there! if not merge the contacts from the tablet to the gmail and sign in again with your gmail account on the s3

if you have a MicroSD card, insert it into your MicroSD slot, go into contacts, hit the menu button, and choose Export to SD. Then put the card into your S3, and Import from SD (in the same spot)

The data transfer between two phones, you can use professional data transfer tool, cuz it is not possible to transfer data between different operation systems. Some professional transfer programs allow you to share data between android phones, or android and iphone without limitations of different operation systems. Transfer contacts to samsung.

@Joanna: you should be able to transfer contacts, apps, and a even apps settings on Android phones running Android 6.0 or later just by signing in for the first time on a new phone and agreeing to import everything from a previous Android device.

For files, you could:
1. use a memory card (now even an OTG adapter can make it easier to skip the computer)
2. connect both devices to a computer via USB
3. use Bluetooth (which is slow)
4. use a file syncing app such as dropbox
