Question [Q] Benefits of CWM vs. TWRP vs. PhilZ Touch?

I have only really used CWM on my previous devices. Does TWRP or PhilZ have any extra features? Maybe EFS backup? Which one should I be using? I have the T-Mobile variant.

cwm is good bu basic
philz is an advanced version with many more features
twrp is good, not all roms ive used are compatible with it tho, it has a nice screen timeout feature to save battery.
depends what u like and need it for.

i use philz and am quite happy with it myself.

feature id like on these is passcode lock so noone can fk your phone when youre not looking
cwm, philz touch, recovery, twpr
