Phlox vs Salient



PHLOX THEME (Salient vs Phlox)

Phlox is pre-eminently a WP-Elementor Theme...

Phlox Theme review


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

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

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.

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.


PHLOX: SPEED

Phlox Theme review laadtijden


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

Phlox Theme review Elementor pagebuilder


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.


PHLOX: PORTFOLIOS

As for Portfolios, it's all beautiful too. With Phlox one can build a great portfolio website.

PHLOX THEME REVIEW: HEADER LAY-OUTS

Phlox Theme review Header Layouts


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.

PHLOX: ANIMATIONS

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.





SALIENT THEME (Salient vs Phlox)

Salient is a top selling theme on Themeforest...

Salient Theme review


To start with, before the start of this Salient Theme review, I have to tell you that the theme has been in the top of the best-selling themes for years now on Themeforest.net. Okay, currently in 11th place, and highest ranking ever maybe in 4th place. There are much better sold themes but Salient has absolute top features that we will take a closer look at.

As a matter of fact, buyers are more enthusiastic about the theme than they are about any other theme. It has an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 based on 5700 ratings. For a premium theme with many options, it is a super-fast loading theme. The builders of Salient are currently claiming one Google Pagespeed a score of 97%, we will come back to this in a moment.

Salient Pagebuilder Editing

<

With the latest version 11 of Salient it now has the front-end page builder of the WP Bakery Page Builder. Themes have to keep up with the times, of course, all toppers have frontend pagebuilders with Thrive Architect with the most impressive I think, followed by Divi and Elementor. Instead of images, we show you below in a video how the Salient page builder works. The WP Bakery Pagebuilder (formerly: Visual Composer) is one of the oldest and best out there, let's say the number 4 right now (my opinion).


Salient Theme: PageSpeed and Y-Slow

Salient fastest loading theme


I did not check it myself with the speedometers concerned, but they show this on their website. Those are really anti-social good scores for Google Pagespeed and Y-Slow (GT-Metrix). Without a doubt impressive. It is very important for a website that it loads quickly, because visitors are impatient nowadays and are quickly away from sites that do not immediately have something to show.

Importable demo websites

Importable demo websites


Like every self-respecting theme Salient has beautiful easy to import layouts. At the time of writing it says on their site that it concerns 285+ demo layouts. A nice number but not a leader in this area. The layouts do give a very good impression and in the end 1 layout is enough so we will not give any negatives for this in this review for Salient.

Salient Theme: Lazy loading

Salient Theme review: Lazy loading


Lazy loading means that images are not immediately shown in their full resolution. They appear immediately but cloudy and slowly pull up. This ensures that other elements on the page load faster and the entire website is visible to visitors much earlier. Normally people use a plugin or a CDN service for this, but with Salient this is not necessary although there is nothing better than a professional CDN-service if you want a super fast website.

Salient Theme review conclusion

We are not going to bore you here by mentioning all sorts of things that practically have all themes in this Salient review. We have raised the main plus points of the theme and there are few minus points. This can be seen from the extremely high rating that buyers of the theme gave it. The theme is definitely worth its $ 60 that is being asked for it Themeforest.net. That is a standard price for a good theme. Click on the button below to go to their site for more information. As a web designer, Salient is not one of my favorites, but I also have it in my collection and I sometimes use it for customers. You can find my personal favorites in the best Wordpress themes [2022].

PHLOX VS SALIENT CONCLUSION

First of all, thanks for reading this Phlox vs Salient comparison to the end. Both of these themes load quickly and are both great for creating sites, blogs and web shops. Phlox and Salient both come with the Elementor page builder free version, upgrade to Elementor Pro is definitely recommended.

The problem these themes have is that there are much better themes like Astra and Divi who also be sold at more attractive prices. Before you decide, I recommend that you read my best themes for [2022].
