Flatsome vs Phlox Theme comparison  💥
FLATSOME vs PHLOX
Phlox vs Flatsome, these are both themes that are extremely suitable for creating e-commerce websites or shops. These two themes are very popular at the moment, are sold well and also receive a very good rating. These are premium themes that do not offer a free version. We test the themes for their qualities.
FLATSOME THEME (Phlox vs Flatsome)
There are many Wordpress themes that consider themselves as the best or perfect shopping theme. One of them is Flatsome. We will be reviewing the Flatsome theme. Let's start by looking at what other people thought of Flatsome based on the reviews they submitted. They received a rating from 5576 customers, an average of 4.80 out 5. This is a very high number and explains why the theme has been sold 206.754+.
Flatsome came on the market at the end of 2013 and we are not talking about a theme in its infancy, but about themes that have been improved for 7 years and that practically have no bugs for that reason. Also, such a theme will not be taken off the market quickly, so you can enjoy it for years.
Flatsome review: Woocommerce
So Flatsome is specialized in e-commerce and mainly in collaboration with Woocommerce, the most popular Wordpress plug-in for shops. My finding is that the theme indeed has a lot to offer in this area. It is even possible to style all product pages differently as shown below and checkout pages can also be adjusted via the CMS (no coding).
Other cool shop features that Flatsome offers are wishlist, sticky header, live product-search, unlimited forms. The goal of the builders of this theme was as much functionality as possible, which is as easy to operate as possible.
Flatsome review: Headers
Another feature that impressed me while writing this Flatsome Wordpress theme review is the ease with which one changes the header. Even more impressive is the header builder with which you build your own header within a few minutes, exactly how you want it. See the 2 photos below.
Flatsome review: UX Builder
Just like Avada has its own page builder called Fusion Builder and Kallyas its Zion Builder, Flatsome has its UX Builder. These are all very good page builders that are used exclusively in their own theme. Often with such page builders you can work almost as well as with the top page builders in the market, although there are clearly fewer options.
Watch a small video below to see how the UX Builder works. The video takes only 9 minutes.
Flatsome review: SEO
We're going to talk about SEO in this Flatsome review. Below is an image where Flatsome claims to be the fastest theme on Themeforest. I wonder if that is really the case because there are many candidates for that, but at least the theme has a good loading time. If you are looking for the fastest themes out there read my article about this topic.
Flatsome review: Elements
Like all premium themes, Flatsome is full of elements that you can use on your pages through their page builder. I am not going to list them all, by looking at the image below, you will immediately know everything.
Of course, Flatsome can do a lot more than I have listed here in my Flatsome theme review. Take a look at their own site if your interest has been piqued. Flatsome is one of the top themes today, especially for building shops. So it is well worth the money, incidentally it also has fantastic documentation and support.
PHLOX THEME (Phlox vs Flatsome)
In this Phlox Theme review we check out the many great features that Phlox has. I think they copied a bit from Divi and deliver more or less the same though Divi is of course in a class of its own. The Phlox Pro Theme is sold through their own website and also through another marketplace. It is also downloadable as a free version from Wordpress.org.
PHLOX THEME REVIEW: RATING
When we check Phlox's rating on Wordpress.org, we see that most raters gave 5 stars on a couple of haters after that. The image above also shows that the theme has now been installed on more than 40,002+ websites. That is a high number for a relatively new theme.
PHLOX THEME REVIEW: DEMOS
The Phlox theme offers a series of beautiful demos that can be installed with 1 click. The choice is already huge. I saw a list of 170+ demos that can be installed with 1 click. Phlox is a real Elementor Theme, so all these denos can be edited with Elementor. The theme also has no less than 40+ special Woocommerce demos, which is absolutely great.
The nice thing about demos is that you can make a quick start with them. The website is already but with the wrong photos and texts in principle. So place your logo in it, adjust texts and photos and you are well on your way to having your own site.
PHLOX THEME REVIEW: WEBSHOPS
I just said it, 40+ demos for webshops, amazing and very nice design. The theme is 100% compatible with Woocommerce and offers all possible features that are available for shops. I will soon put Phlox in my top 10 for webshop themes because it is really one of the best themes to build a shop with.
PHLOX: WOOCOMMERCE LAY-OUTS
When we talk about the real shopping area, where shopping is paid, it looks very professional. Attention has been paid to this and you have all kinds of different of these beautiful layouts.
PHLOX: WOOCOMMERCE FEATURES
EDD Support, Amazon Vender, Quick View, Multi-Vendor, the Phlox Theme gives you it all and much more. Even for an elite theme it is not necessary to offer all this. Again, something they put a lot of effort into.
The Phlox theme is one of the fastest themes out there for Wordpress, although it just doesn't make it to my list for fastest WP-themes. The bare theme with no extra plugins with just a well-configured cache plugin produced the result presented above. Of course you can optimize your website yourself for loading time. Follow this tutorial here.
PHLOX THEME REVIEW: PAGEBUILDERS
The Phlox theme is one of the best so called Elementor Themes out there. In addition, it also offers the well-known Bakery-Pagebuilder as an encore for free. Above is the Elementor pagebuilder in action in Phlox.
As for Portfolios, it's all beautiful too. With Phlox one can build a great portfolio website.
PHLOX THEME REVIEW: HEADER LAY-OUTS
There is a choice of 12 different header layouts. There is also such a choice for footer layouts, although I will not give a screenshot of that.
PHLOX: HEADER EFFECTS
I say header again, we are not talking about the header bar but the sliders in the header that can be equipped with videos and parallax. Very suitable for making a website look good.
Just like Divi, it even offers quite a few animations, it all contributes to making your website look perfectly professional.
PHLOX: MORE FEATURES
Phlox is just a great theme and has many more features. I can certainly recommend that you take a look at the rest on their own site via the button at the bottom of this article.
PHLOX THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION
I can immediately say that I am impressed by the quality, the many features, and the many demos of Phlox. They really did their best to create a complete theme that works great and is suitable for every type of website and they succeeded. If you would buy their pro version, do so via their own site and not via Themeforest, that way they earn more and Themeforest is best avoided anyway because of suspicious practices.
Phlox vs Flatsome conclusion
First of all, thank you for reading this Phlox vs Avada comparison to the end. Both Phlox and Avada are very good themes. Both themes are packed with features and settings. Both themes are also very suitable for building web shops and load quickly in a browser. So they are very similar, but there are some differences. Phlox is also available as a free version, but of course less spectacular. Avada is more expensive as it requires a separate expensive license for each of your websites. That's also the case with Phlox if you buy it through the infamous Themeforest marketplace, but Phlox can be bought with much better conditions at their own website so you should definitely do this.
