Installing Team Win’s TWRP Recovery on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 N910T is going to give you a clean user interface with more features than any other custom recovery image. TWRP has the command terminal, file manager, the ability to ADB sideload, reload themes, mount partitions for any of the files that you are flashing, the chance to queue your files, so you don’t have to do them manually one by one and still a bunch of other stuff that is incredibly useful.
The reason why people usually install custom recovery images is to install new kernels and ROMs that take people away from the stock ROM. There are many reasons for people wanting to switch from the stock ROM. Some people have a preferred ROM that looks a certain way and has a set of features that suit their needs more than the stock ROM, while others enjoy taking advantage of the third-developers ROM developers handy work with them having already removed all the system apps that were using so much memory that they would rather use elsewhere.
