Understand, though, that installing the keyboard only allows you send out the Emoji to other similarly equipped phones. For you to see the exact emoji that someone sent to you, you'll also need to have the emoji font packs installed on your phone. In most, if not all, cases you would need root access on your phone to be able to do this. Check out this app for rooted devices that can do exactly this:

How do you put black Emoji from the Galaxy 3 to the iPhone 5c?

Like the Galaxy 3 has black Emoji and I was wondering how do you do it to input it on the iPhone 5c

You don't need to install any apps for Emoji, black and white Emoji already built-in on the iPhone 5c and can be used entirely for free. Here is how you enable Emoji on your iPhone 5c:

Just go to Settings >> General >> Keyboard >> Keyboards >> Add New Keyboard >> tap on Emoji to enable

When the keyboard appears, you will then see the emoji key which is a small key that looks similar to a globe. This can be found on the the left side of the space bar. Just tap on the key and lots of emoji options will now appear and are available to use when sending text messages.
