Before you boot your phone into the recovery mode, you should be known about the recovery mode as such. A Recovery Mode is a utility which is installed by default on every Android device.

Along with that, it also helps us to restore our phones, when the interface crashes.

With the recovery mode, you can perform useful functions, like factory resetting the phone. Also, you can install Custom ROMs, and Apply Manual Update to the phone. Of course for that, you will need to install a custom recovery on your phone, and that is a different topic altogether.  So I think you now have an idea, that what really a Recovery Mode is.
