Porto vs Uncode Theme comparison [2022] 💥

Porto vs Uncode


PORTO vs UNCODE


Uncode vs Porto, two very popular Wordpress themes for years. Both Porto and Uncode are currently among the best-selling themes on the Themeforest marketplace. Both themes also receive a very good rating from their users. Let's see which theme offers more value for money.



PORTO THEME (Uncode vs Porto)

Porto Theme review


I will discuss here the Wordpress version of the Porto Theme. There is also an HTML 5 version that has been around much longer, that you can find here. But we will discuss that another time. The Porto Theme has risen sharply lately, although it has always been among the best themes.

Porto theme review: Rating

Porto theme review rating


When we check out Porto's rating on Themeforest, it is indeed 4.92 out of 5. I know the site and all the themes very well there, and 4.92 may very well be the highest possible rating for the 20 best-selling themes. There are themes with a higher rating, but not on Themeforest. Porto has been sold over 65.484+ times and 2855 people have given a rating, so that is very reliable.

Porto theme review: Demos

Porto Theme review demos


The theme has gone through some pretty extreme improvements that we're going to talk about now. Just like any other self-respecting WP theme nowadays, Porto has ready-made demo websites that can be installed with one click. They have added 30 of these since the last upgrade, bringing the total to almost 100.

The nice thing about demos is that you can make a quick start. The website is already with the wrong photos and texts in principle. So put your logo in it, adjust texts and photos and you are well on your way to having your own site.

Porto theme review: Webshops

66 multipurpose demos are available for all conceivable niches that can be used to create beautiful corporate and private websites. It is great that no fewer than 33 demos are ready-made shops. From here you can quickly start a webshop.

Porto theme review: Speed

Porto Theme review loading times


In the meantime, no theme wants to be left behind in terms of loading times or speed, as Google attaches more and more value to this. Porto is therefore also built with a fast code that ensures good loading times in browsers. Porto also has a built-in speed wizard that helps you make your website even faster, which is quite unique. Of course you can also do this yourself if you read my tutorial here.

Porto theme review: Pagebuilders

Porto Theme review page builders


The Porto theme comes standard with the in my opinion very good WP Bakery Pagebuilder. A solid page builder that has several third-party plugins available to extend the elements. The theme is also fully compatible with the Elementor page builder, one of the best out there in this area. Among the demos you will find about twenty layouts that have been made with it, so that you can work with Elementor after you install one.

Porto theme review: Header builder

Porto Theme review header builder


The header is like a grid where you can drag and drop elements. So it is easy even for laymen to build exactly the header they had in mind. A cool tool! We can't help but give the full marks for this in this Porto theme review.

Porto theme review: Elements

Porto Theme review elements


Porto currently offers 33 elements for the Bakery Pagebuilder, which, as mentioned before, is easy to expand with plugins.

Porto theme review: Revolution Slider

The Revolution Slider is by far the best slider plugin. There are a lot of options, which takes some getting used to if you do not know the plug-in yet and also after a major upgrade as has only happened with the new version 6. However, the documentation of the plug-in is very good, which means that you will quickly discover how everything works. Google searches also always help me with that. The good side is that once you get used to it, you don't want anything else. There are practically no limits to what it can do and everything works smoothly.

Porto theme review: Conclusion

I think the Porto theme is great. The demo layouts are beautiful, the setup of the theme is quick and easy, and it has a good loading time. The theme is indeed very suitable for building shops and the header builder is of course fantastic. The price is just standard for themes on Themeforest so that's okay too. The theme offers great value for money.

UNCODE THEME (Uncode vs Porto)

Uncode Theme review


UNCODE THEME REVIEW

Today in this Uncode Theme review for [2022] we will take a look at why the theme is so popular and has been sold 75,000 times in a short time. Do not confuse that score with free themes, as much higher numbers are a lot easier to achieve. Uncode claims to be a Woocommerce theme of itself, mainly aimed at building web shops, but that would be short of the theme. This is a fully-fledged multipurpose theme with web shops as a specialty.

UNCODE WEBSHOPS

Uncode is an absolute top theme when we talk about Woocommerce compatibility, everything has been thought of. The Uncode theme has all the gadgets that one can expect from an adult webshop. Single product pages can be fully customized, just like the Cart and Check-out pages. The theme has a Quick-view, Side-cart, Wishlist and much more.

UNCODE LOAD SPEED

Another thing that was considered during the development of Uncode is loading speed, the theme is quite fast as can be seen in the image below with a GT-Metrix speed test. Mobile loading times were also considered, as the theme rescaled all images to the correct format for all types of devices. For example, small images are loaded on mobile and large images on desktop.

UNCODE FRONT-END EDITOR

Uncode works with WP-Bakery pagebuilder, which I am honestly less fond of, but the new front-end editor is of course more than okay. A lot of themes like this suddenly have Elementor as a page builder in new upgrades, and I think we don't have to wait long for this at Uncode. Of course we prefer to work with the best editors out there, which are Elementor Pro or the Divibuilder.

UNCODE DEMO-DESIGNS & TEMPLATES

Uncode offers 70+ demo designs from which you can start your new website without much effort. These designs can be imported with 1-click. Aside from ready-to-use website demos, there is also a library of page and section templates.

UNCODE FREE PREMIUM PLUG-INS

Finally, in this Uncode Theme review I would like to talk about the many premium plug-ins that the theme offers. WP-Bakery costs around $ 65 on its own and you get an upgraded version of it here. I am not going to list them all, but striking are also the 2 incredibly good and quite expensive slider plug-ins, namely Revolution Slider and LayerSlider. See image below.

UNCODE THEME REVIEW: PRICING

The Uncode theme costs $ 60, which seems like a great price. The fact is, if you put $ 30 on it, you Divi Theme has what is a lot better. Uncode has a license for only 1 website, Divi can be used on as many sites as you want.

UNCODE THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION

Uncode is certainly one of the better premium themes out there, but unfortunately it does not reach the real top. It cannot be denied that it is capable of producing very professional web shops. There are much better page builders that use other themes but not (yet) Uncode. Before purchasing Uncode, I would definitely take a look at my article for best themes for [2022] and pick a theme in the top of it. You can use those themes on as many sites as you want, and Uncode only on 1 website. That quickly becomes very expensive if you have multiple websites.

PORTO VS UNCODE CONCLUSION

First of all, thank you for reading this Porto vs Uncode comparison to the end. Both of these themes load fairly quickly and are both great for creating webshops. Porto comes with the Elementor page builder free version, upgrading to Elementor Pro is definitely recommended . Uncode comes with a tuned version of WP-Bakery. I obviously prefer working with Elementor.

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