Disabling Evenwell apps

There has been a lot of discussion on several forums about HMD's Evenwell apps causing battery drain and stopping apps running in the background. A number of solutions have been proposed to disable or remove these apps including using ADB. One solution uses only the phone's settings menu and is easily reversible. It is this method i am documenting below.

Open the settings menu and tap on Apps & notifications/see all apps. Then tap on the overflow menu (3 dots in upper right corner) and tap on Show system. You can now access the required apps.

For the following apps, tap on the app then tap on Advanced then tap on Modify system settings. Then set the toggle to off.
  Battery saver
  PowerMonitor
  Power saver.

For the following apps, tap on the app and then tap on DISABLE.
  com.evenwell.PowerMonitor.overlay.base.s600ww
  com.evenwell.powersaving.g3.overlay.base.s600ww

These apps are now effectively disabled.

The Battery saver app is the one that stops apps running in the background and the others modify Android One Pie built in power saving routines for the worse.

    Have you got sensible improvements in battery life disabling these apps?
    I can't understand why HMD Nokia did the choice of rewriting default battery saveing algorithms inside Pie 9.0. Android One is for a stock experience: of course each OEM can have its own kernel and drivers...but why adding these apps?

    Edit: Battery saver should read Battery protection.
