Because LG G5 runs Google’s Android OS, it can sync with Google Calendar and Contacts. For many, however, this is not an acceptable option because Google saves your private information in the cloud.

If you’re looking for an easy, private way to get your Outlook data on your new LG G5, without Google or the cloud, this article will guide you through moving your Outlook Contacts to Android.
