TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) is a popular and phenomenal custom Recovery which is generally available for many Android devices ranging from smartphone, phablet and tablet. The coolest thing about TWRP is its touchscreen-enabled feature. Yup, with this recovery you can navigate to various features by just tapping on your device’s screen instead of using Volume up/down and power button. Yup, I mean it’s just like using your smartphone as usual.
