When Magisk hijacks the recovery, there is a special mechanism to allow you to actually boot into recovery mode. Each device model has its own key combo to boot into recovery, as an example for Galaxy S10 it is (Power + Bixby + Volume Up). As soon as you press the key combo and the device vibrates with a splash screen, release all buttons to boot into Magisk.
So TWRP is a custom recovery that you need to flash on to your stock recovery to get the most out of your phone. There are more custom recoveries like CWM but they don’t work as well.

This will upload your media in the best possible quality for reduced file size. You still have the option to buy more storage from Google, if you’re willing to opt for original size backups. The first thing that you would never like to lose is your personal contacts and messages. The best and most efficient way to backup Android contacts is to sync them with your Google account.
