    I have an LG G7 One.
    Is there a way to turn off that G search box at the bottom?

    Same as any other app icon or widget. FWIW, the G search box is a widget.

    Touch and hold the widget until uninstall/remove appears at the top of the screen. Continue holding and drag the widget to on top of the remove spot. You can also drag it to a different home screen.

    Removing things from home screens does not remove them from the phone, just from the home screen.

    The same applies to moving or removing any home screen app icon or widget.

    That's what I first tried but it doesn't act like a widget.

    Any other ideas?

    Maybe Android9 or Google or LG doesn't let me turn it off.

    The clock/weather at the top and the search G at the bottom are in areas that I can't put other widgets so I don't think they are regular widgets.
    Maybe this is an Android One phone thing,

    1.Tap "Apps".
    2.Scroll to "All" tab.
    3.Select Google Search or Google App and tap "Disable".
    4. Restart your phone and you'll find the Google Search bar is turned off.

    Maybe stop your google search Application also.

    I found an app called "Google" so I disabled it.
    The G is gone but I white "Search box" is left behind.
    It does nothing except take up room.
    Oh well, it is better than it was.
