How To Export/Import Contacts As .VCF File On Galaxy Android Smartphone?

Even though most of the people are opting for cloud backup of their phone contacts, there are people like me who would still like to keep a local copy on their Galaxy Smartphone SD Card or on an external USB storage. If you don't know if it's still possible, of course it's possible, you can save a complete backup of your Galaxy Android Smartphone contacts as .VCF file on the SD Card or USB pendrive, also you can import the complete contacts from that vcf file to any Smartphone which supports the format (.vcf) when need arises.

The steps are almost similar on all Android firmware versions, so we are providing Jelly Bean and Marshmallow based tutorial only here.
