    I just switched from a Galaxy S3 to Galaxy S5.

    In my S3, all my Facebook friends showed up in my phone's Contacts list.

    In my S5, my contacts list is completely empty. I literally have zero contacts after plugging in this new phone with this new SIM.

    How do I make my S5 shows Facebook friends as Contacts in my phone, like my S3 did?

    You need to log into Facebook first. You should be able to find the Facebook account in your Accounts section in the Settings or when you download and sign into the Facebook app. Just make sure that the Contact Sync is selected.

    It doesnt help, facebook account does appear in accounts section but there is no option to sync contacts. May be android 5 bug, drives me absolutely mad. In a glimpse my communications are seriously damaged. Well done Google.

    I can see it no issues on my friend's S5 and on my Note 4. You go into accounts, Facebook, select your Facebook account, and I see SYNC CONTACTS, SYNC CALENDAR, SYNC GALLERY.
    You do need to have the Facebook app installed, I think.

    If you don't see the option (I really don't know why... I've owned a bunch of Samsung phones at least and they all include that) you can use HaxSync. It does just that. Sync contact and/or calendar items with Facebook and updates picture/status on your Contact List as well.

    I have the same issue. Went from Galaxe Note 2 to Galaxy Note 4. Sync Contacts is no longer an option. Switched back to my Note 2 which i had wiped and the option is there. Reset my Note 4 and still missing this option.

    You have to use an older version of FB or install a sync app from the play store

    FB has recently removed contact access from OEMs
