Sync bookmarks from old phone to new phone

I have tried now for hours and cannot get it to work. I have Opera on one Android phone and am moving over to another Android phone before the first one fails.
I have Opera loaded on each phone.
I have signed in to Opera on both phones
Sync is ON for both phones
Nothing shows up in my new phone at all.
How do I get my bookmarks (that all I really want) from one phone to another.
I apologize if this is basic but the last time I did this was several years ago and it did not seem so difficult.
Many, many thanks for all help.

I tried placing a support ticket but I have heard nothing back. I have seen that there are other complaints about this for all types of phones with no response from Opera.
I have had Sync On active on both phones and my desktop continuously (logged into my Opera account on all three) for days now and nothing has happened.
I may have to stop using Opera is if this going to be the case. And it is only going to get worse as the phone I wanted to import/sync/download my bookmarks to is just a temporary phone until my new one arrives. If Opera Sync is not going to work then it is useless as an operating system to me.

Update---i am so frustrated that I am at the point of deleting Opera from everything and calling it quits. However I have one more piece of information that might be useful to someone else who is trouble shooting. Opera Support has never responded.
1-I deleted all speed dials and bookmarks from the Opera Browser and the new phone. (I do not save Passwords)
So effectively all the bookmarks and speed dials I want are on the old phone.
All devices are logged into Opera account.
All have Sync On
2- I tried to Connect Devices with the two phones.
Connection fails every time.
3- I tried to Connect Device with each device to Opera Browser through Flow
I am logged into Opera Browser and once the connection is made.
It automatically drops the connection.
Uninstalled Opera Browser (used Revo Uninstaller to get all the "bits) and reinstalled.
4- I have tried going to opera.com/Connect and using the QR code that shows up on the browser to the New Phone The connection works. I disconnect the New Phone (Remember Browser & New Phone do not have any bookmarks)
5- Attempt to connect Old Phone to Browser. I have to completely shut down Browser and turn off the New Phone otherwise an attempted connection to the Old Phone gives me a message that the browser is already busy with a connected device.
I seem to get a connected with the Browser & Old Phone using opera.com/connect. (The Old Phone shows up in the My Flow window) However nothing happens. The Browser bookmarks window (heart icon) does not even show the New Phone in the list on the browser. Yes Sync On is showing and the Old Phone is logged into Opera account.
The old way of transferring bookmarks was sooooo much simpler. Heck I'd even be happy for an Import/Export file that I could put on my SIM card.
