I think Gmail is a good way.
And I also want to share a tool with you, which is a backup assistant can export android contacts to your pc or to other places.

Android Assistant software can back up your files from Android phone to SDcard,
you just need to try this powerful software on your PC, then choose the files like
contacts, photos, text messages, videos, documents and other files.
And export these wanted files and contents to computer, then import the files to your SD
card safely.

I'd like to add more choices to backup your Android data, like MobiKin Assistant for Android, just a few clicks to transfer all your files to computer for backup, and you can manage them on your computer freely.

Recently, I have used a thing to free back up my Samsung files. I tend to share with you. It is called Android Data Backup & Restore with over 100 reviews. I want to share it since it can allow me to set a password to protect my backup. Thus, my family cannot access my data.

Is it FonePaw Android Backup & Restore? I tried this and its product page is the same to what you showed. It backed up my phone data and I can restore it to another device. not bad.
