Android devices come with a separate bootable partition we call recovery mode that lets us recover our devices if something goes wrong. Since we use our smartphones and tablets all the time, it’s important Android as an operating system gives us a way out of trouble. They do that with recovery mode. Each Android device has its own recovery mode. It doesn’t matter what the manufacturer of your smartphone or tablet is, they all have the separate partition available. For example, if you have a smartphone from HTC, Samsung, LG, Xiaomi, Google, OnePlus or any other brand that use the Android operating system, they all have the recovery mode to recover the devices.
