Every new phones come with its own list of useless bloated apps. You may root the phone and then, delete those apps but if you can't root or don't want to, you can also use ADB to remove them. They will still be in system folder but they won't run anymore. Here's a guide on how to use ADB Shell: How to Uninstall Carrier/OEM Bloatware Without Root Access (xda-developers.com) and here's my list of apps you can uninstall from the G8X ThinQ without any ill effects.

You may or may not want to remove those but, they are useless for me as I prefer to use alternative apps:
pm uninstall --user 0 com.google.android.calendar
pm uninstall --user 0 com.google.android.gm
pm uninstall --user 0 com.lge.clock
pm uninstall --user 0 com.android.chrome
pm uninstall --user 0 com.android.contacts

Those are related to Second screen, I disabled them because I don't use it:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.lge.dualscreenfirmware
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.lge.dsmanager
pm uninstall --user 0 com.lge.covertools
pm uninstall --user 0 com.lge.secondlauncher

After uninstalling apps mentioned in first list, gesture navigation stopped working while an active call is going on. Any idea which app uninstallation messed that?

LG G8
Should be the com.lge.gestureanswering

Im currently debloating too and have some suggestions:

Instead of uninstalling I use the "adb shell pm disable-user --user 0" command to disable and "adb shell pm enable" to enable.

Removing the keyboard "com.lge.ime" without having installed another one will cause problems
