Uncode vs Newspaper comparison  💥
Newspaper vs Uncode, we compare these themes on loading speed, number of demos, quality of the demos, type of page builder they use and how easy they are to adjust. Both multipurpose themes have very good sales figures on the Themeforest marketplace. How do these themes relate to each other?
UNCODE THEME (Newspaper vs Uncode)
Today in this Uncode Theme review for  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 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  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.

Another handy tool is the Translation Panel, which helps you load one of the dozens of available translations and automatically convert a list of strings. Practically every other theme needs extra plugins for this.

NEWSPAPER 11 REVIEW CONCLUSION
We are dealing with one of the better themes for . It is not yet in my top 10 of the best Wordpress themes, but maybe that will change for next year.
Newspaper 11 has proven to be the best theme for blogs and news sites for me. Well there are other very good themes that are certainly close. Newspaper 11 is equipped with the WP Bakery Pagebuilder which is another thorn in my side. This is a good but very outdated page builder, it could be much better. Apart from that, I only see very good qualities for the rest. With this theme you can go in any direction. It is not only a news theme but just a multipurpose theme. The theme costs $ 59, a more or less standard price for good themes and the theme is definitely worth the money.
NEWSPAPER VS UNCODE CONCLUSION
First of all, thank you for reading this Newspaper vs Uncode comparison to the end. Both themes are 100% compatible with Elementor page builder which is great. If you have the money to install Elementor Pro I would definitely do that , the difference between free and pro is very big. Uncode is a multipurpose theme with a lot of settings, one has to love this, some hate it because sometimes things are so hard to find. Newspaper loads a lot faster than Uncode and is also very versatile and easy to adjust. Both themes are well worth their money if it is just for 1 single website.
In case you want to provide 2 or more websites with a theme, I do not recommend both of these themes because then it will be much too expensive, since a separate expensive license will be required for each website. In that case, you can much better use Astra or Divi as it will save you money for multiple sites. In addition, these latter themes are ranked higher in my top 10 themes for  than Uncode and Newspaper.
