How to Enter Recovery Mode on Galaxy Note 8

Recovery is something built natively into the Android source code. Almost all phones ship with the stock recovery unlocked and open to the user. Samsung in this case is also very open. You can easily access the recovery partition and this doesn’t affect your handset’s warranty in any way.

As you know, the Recovery mode allows to flash third-party applications, mods, and ROMs. Additionally, it comes with many advanced features to maintain the well-being state of your device.
