Just got a Samsung S8, when I click on the search phone bar at the top of the apps pages is there any way to disable the suggest apps that show or is it possible to get rid of the search bar, thanks.

This has been driving me crazy for a couple of days but I figured it out for my issue and I hope it works for you too.

 

On the home screen do a long press

Go to Home Screen Settings at the bottom

Go to Home Screen Layout

Choose Home and Apps screens and apply.

 

Mine was on Home Screen Only and I changed it and now I see all my apps instead of suggested apps.

Unfortunately, there is not any way to disable the search. However, there is a way to stop it from working but might cause some issues. And that is by Force Stopping the Finder app! 

The way to clear the suggestions is by restarting the phone. Or by Clearing the TouchWiz data. Hope it helps!
