How to Uninstall System Apps on Nokia without Root

If you own a Nokia smartphone and want to remove bloatware and Nokia Evenwell apps from your device, below is a list of Nokia bloatware or safe to remove apps. Following the steps given in this guide, you can easily uninstall the system apps on your Nokia device without root using ADB command.

I recently published a detailed tutorial on removing Samsung bloatware and easy ways to uninstall system apps on Xiaomi devices. Today, we’ll see to achieve the same on Nokia phones.

Nokia Evenwell Apps

So, what is Nokia Evenwell and why do Nokia phones have loads of Evenwell apps. Actually, Evenwell is a Taiwanese company that develops apps for HMD Global.

If you check the list of Nokia system apps that keep running in the background, you’ll find several Evenwell apps.  Most of these apps are either related to battery saving, battery protection, weather, system monitoring, etc. In August 2019, HMD Global confirmed that it would gradually ditch the power-saving Nokia Evenwell apps on Android 9.o Pie and above. Many phones including Nokia 3.1, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.2, and Nokia 7.1 running Pie or newer have another poser-saving app called DuraSpeed.

This is how Laura, an HMD staff confirmed the removal of Evenwell apps in the Nokia community forum.

Before Google introduced Adaptive battery on Android P, OEMs had their own solutions for managing system performance and battery life. Evenwell was our solution. With Android 9 Pie’s adaptive battery feature, the need to have an alternate solution no longer exists. Adaptive battery uses deep learning to understand usage patterns and prioritise battery and is more intelligent AI driven approach for battery and performance management and is available across the range of Nokia smartphones running Android 9 Pie. When our devices that launched with Android N or Android O originally upgraded to Android 9 Pie, we started to gradually disable Evenwell while carefully monitoring end user feedback. Now we have completely disabled Evenwell from our legacy devices so even if you see the solution there, it does not do anything. On our new devices launching with Android 9 P (or later) releases we do not have Evenwell at all.

When it comes to Nokia Evenwell power-saving apps, the experience of Nokia users widely differ. Some users believe that Evenwell apps fail to manage the Nokia background apps efficiently and cause battery drain. However, when they uninstalled or disabled those apps, they noticed even worse battery performance. At the same time, a number of Nokia users claimed to get better battery life (an increase of around 2 hours) after they disabled com.evenwell.powersaving.g3 and other Evenwell apps.

Please note some Evenwell apps are very sensitive and removing or disabling them from your phone might cause force stop error like shown below.

Unfortunately, power saver has stopped.

Get the List of Nokia System Apps Package Names

While most Nokia phones share the same apps, the preinstalled apps on a device might differ depending on the device model and Android version. It’s always better to have your own list of system apps using an ADB command. There’s an ADB Shell command that can print the list of all system apps that come preinstalled on your Nokia phone.

  1. Download the latest ADB and Fastboot tools on your Windows, Linux, or Mac computer and extract it on your desktop.
  2. Don’t forget to turn on USB debugging on your Nokia device.
  3. Open the ‘platform-tools‘ folder and launch the Windows Command Prompt or PowerShell window inside the folder window. You can set up universal ADB to run commands from any screen on your computer.
  4. Connect your Nokia phone to the computer using a USB cable and run the following command.
    adb devices

    adb devices command

  5. In case you get the ‘adb is not recognized’ error message, fix it. However, if you get your device ID in the form of alphanumeric values, you are good to issue the adb shell command followed by
    pm list packages -s
  6. You’ll get the list of package names for all system apps installed on your Nokia phone.

Alternatively, you can use apps like Package Browser, App Inspector, Package Name Viewer, etc. to find out the app packages preset on your device.
