twrp 2.7 works perfect even if your on NE5. GooManger doesnt work anymore but if you get it from the website and then flash it using odin your good to go.

Default twrp

Ive tried both philz ans TWRP, and personally like TWRP myself. Its cleaner in my opinion. 2.7works with no issues with backing up and restoring.

I've never had problems with TWRP 2.7. I heard about all the talk of TWRP not doing well with NE5 and I switched to Philz based on it. Well Philz has only successfully restored about half of my backups so far. Switched back to TWRP and I'm happy.
