What is Recovery Mode?

The Recovery Menu
There is a pretty long(not that long) list of things that can be done in a recovery menu. Different smartphones can have different recovery menu, some of the common things are listed below:
Reboot system: as the term itself suggests it will restart the device normally.
Apply update from ADB: the ADB or Android Debug Bridge helps the user to connect the Android device to a computer. This feature is designed for Android developers, and therefore requires the Android SDK (Software Development Kit) to be installed on the computer.
Apply from external storage: this will actually allow users to update the system from the OTA file which is present in the external storage.
Wipe data from / factory reset: this will wipe the data and the cache partition, and reset the device to its initial factory settings.
Wipe cache partition: this will wipe all data from the cache partition. The cache partition is a partition in the drive, which is used as a memory, to temporarily store data.

- Turn off your phone.
- Once it is turned off. Press and hold the power/Bixby and volume down button simultaneously until the Android logo pops up.

That was all. That was the simple way to enter recovery mode on Samsung Galaxy S20/S20+/S20 Ultra.
