Try formatting phone and remove some system apps and then flash gapps it will mostly solve the problem.
I did factory reset (data, both cache) and also wiped system partition, gapps would be the least issue, as I said that GZR should work, but my system doesn't boot, no matter how times I wipe everything through TWRP or stock recovery after flashing system.img, since they say it's normal to hang at first boot and then wipe and then it should boot, but it doesn't work for me. also of course tried to power off phone since some people said it helps to do it after flashing. what I haven't done it's fastboot -w which should be some better wipe. some people say also you should remove magisk ramdisk, though I forgot to back up original, backed up just stock recovery. and also I haven't tried to flash everything with stock recovery, though first flash I did was through fastboot anyway and not through TWRP and it didn't make difference
so last few things left to try:
- fastboot -w for total wipe of data (better than TWRP? though it should be same as Format data in TWRP which wipe everything including internal storage which I wanna avoid since backing up 15GB TWRP backup file it's kinda annoying and my system has problem to do it)
- flash with stock recovery (I have backup, no big deal)
- remove magisk ramdisk and flash with stock ramdisk (forgot to make backup, can't replace)
though I am tired of it for now, spend last night like 4 hours dealing with it until 2AM and I also need to take care of children

Just wondering: does it make a difference for TWRP wether I own the 6gb or 4gb version?
I don't think RAM has something to do with anything, but that sounds like Chinese version since EU has always 4GB and only difference is storage, so you will have different ROM
