Contacts > exchange syncing to Android for contacts  and vice versa

Hi,

Recently got an android phone and considering changing from iphone ...

Ive a lot of contacts but the sync is very slow and no progress bar.

Is there a problem with two way sync from android phone to exchange and vice versa?  
When I update a contact on the phone it has to go to exchange and vice versa ...

I might consider reverting to iphone if there is sync issue ...  although apple phones are so so expensive compared to Samsung galaxy  

Thanks

In 1 day my phone has only synced 1/3 of my contacts, so slow to sync for the first time and broadband connection is fast enough ...
