UX-Builder vs Zion-Builder Test  💥
UX-BUILDER (Zion-Builder vs UX-Builder)
The UX-Builder is included for free in the Flatsome Theme...
The UX-Builder is an astonishingly good page builder that you may not know about yet. The page builder is not sold separately as a plugin, at least not yet and is therefore only known to those who know the Flatsome Theme. This high-scoring theme is sold through the infamous Themeforest marketplace. You can read my review for the Flatsome Theme here.
UX-BUILDER PAGEBUILDER REVIEW
The UX builder is a responsive front-end page builder, which means that you can work directly on the page, and that for all devices, so mobile, tablet and desktop. Similar page builders are the best out there like Divi, Elementor, Brizy and Beaverbuilder. To work with this kind of page builders absolutely no real web designer skills are needed, they are suitable for everyone. There are of course minor differences between these page builders, so getting used to a new page builder is definitely a process that you have to go through.
The builders of the theme have about 15 different videos available to quickly get acquainted with this product and as support for its users. You can click the blue button with "Preview Item" here on the page to view all find these videos quickly. I will present the most important of these below.
UX-BUILDER REVIEW: ELEMENTS
Themes often advertise about the many elements contained in them, in reality these elements (also called widgets) belong to the page builder. The UX-Builder has about 45 elements in total, a nice number. This includes call-to-action buttons, headings, video, image, sliders, team, counters, and so on. There are page builders with an even greater number of elements, but 45 is already quite a lot. The UX-Builder does not have what is the case with a page builder like Elementor that there are many third parties are those extra elements for sale for sale.
UX-BUILDER: GRIDS (DRAG & DROP)
The UX-Builder offers many special features such as the drag and drop grid builder. Your photo grids can be built very quickly in this way, much faster than before. There are also many options such as zoom as shown below.
The same goes for the slider and banner building system built into the UX-Builder. It all works beautifully, in no time you have put together beautiful sliders. This feature also works with drag & drop.
Although people don't notice this too much, the UX-Builder is built on shortcodes. This makes the editor very fast to work with. An example of what the code looks like is shown below. Of course, it is difficult to switch to another editor since they do not understand the shortcodes produced by Flatsome. However, this applies to most page builders.
UX-BUILDER AND FLATSOME
Of course, as stated before, you get the UX-Builder in the Flatsome Theme. Week after week, this theme takes second place on Themeforest for best-selling themes. So we are dealing here with the combination of a good page builder with a very good theme. There are of course many more advantages to this theme, such as a huge library with demo sections and websites, mega menus and of course not to forget that the theme loads quickly and is perfect for building webshops with Woocommerce. You can read more about the Flatsome Theme here.
UX-BUILDER REVIEW PRICING
A bit of a disadvantage of the theme is that it is not sold via their own website, where they could in principle give big discounts like many other themes do. It is sold through the Themeforest marketplace. The take a lot of money for the mediation which is not really fair and oblige the themes to require a separate expensive license for every website of yours on which you would like to use the theme. This quickly becomes quite expensive.
UX-BUILDER REVIEW CONCLUSION
The UX-Builder is a very good page builder that with some extra work could possibly be sold as a plugin such as Brizy, not the best but certainly good to mention. The number of elements it contains is quite high and the code in which it is written is good and fast. If you want to work with the UX-Builder, you must purchase the Flatsome Theme.
ZION-BUILDER (Elementor vs Zion-Builder)
The Zion-Builder has been around for years in the Kallyas Theme. I have been working with this theme for about 8 years because it is one of the best themes for building webshops. Knowing the Zion-Builder without having to research it, I can immediately say that the page builder is great. Zion-Builder is available as a free and a premium version.
ZION-BUILDER PAGEBUILDER REVIEW
The Zion builder is a responsive front-end page builder. Through my personal years of experience with this page builder I can immediately tell you that it works very precisely. Let's say if you want to build a work of art and the placement of elements comes down to millimeters, the Zion-Builder is ideal for that.
The builders of the theme have about 8 different videos available to quickly get acquainted with this product and as support for its users. You can find all the video Zion-Builder offers here on the page.
ZION-BUILDER REVIEW: ELEMENTS
The Zion-Builder counts all together 45+ widgets (also called elements). This is a reasonable number, page builders like UX-Builder and Brizy offer the same numbers. I show some of these widgets below, if you want to see them all go to this page.
ZION BUILDER'S EDITOR
Zion-Builder is an inline text editor which means you can write directly on the page where you want as shown below. This is simply one of the most advanced editors even if it isn't really well known yet.
ZION-BUILDER: TEMPLATES LIBRARY
We're talking about a library full of pre-processed sections for call-to-cation items, forms, popups, and more. You can add these items to your page with 1 click and adapt them to your house style and data. The library features 150+ items. Well, there are both themes and page builders who offer 800+ of these, but given the young age of Zion-Builder it is a nice number.
It is a bit more difficult to calculate speed with page builders than with themes. You can test the Zion Builder free here and see if the speed suits you. What we can do here is check the speed of the page on which the page builder is sold. The results of this test at GtMetrix are below. These are very good numbers which means to me that their programmers know all about optimizing for speed.
ZION-BUILDER: THEME BUILDER
Like the best-selling page builders like Elementor, Zion-Builder has a Theme Builder. Allows you to customize parts of the layout that should look the same on all pages. This includes the footer, the header and any additional sections that you want to see on all pages.
Zion-Builder originally comes from a theme that was designed for e-commerce purposes. In the page builder you therefore have a large number of Woocommerce widgets. Zion-Builder also has a Woocommerce-Builder that makes styling product pages, cart pages and the like very easy.
ZION-BUILDER AND KALLYAS
Of course, as mentioned before, you get the Zion-Builder in the Kallyas Theme. Kallyas is an excellent theme that has been developed for years and therefore has few bugs. This theme is at its best when it comes to creating E-commerce websites. The advantage of buying the Kallyas Theme is that you get many more.
ZION-BUILDER REVIEW PRICING
The Zion-Builder offers very reasonable prices. At the time of writing there was just an offer, you just have to be lucky of course. The standard prices are next to it. The page builder is also worth its money just at the normal price as far as I'm concerned.
ZION-BUILDER REVIEW CONCLUSION
I had already given a few comments right at the beginning as I am very familiar with this product. The Zionbuilder works very precisely, quickly and what was often pleasant for me in combination with the Kallyas Theme is the ease with which I could use a different header on every page without that this took a lot of time. Definitely recommended, although there are more good pagebuilders.
UX-BUILDER VS ZION-BUILDER CONCLUSION
Thank you for reading my UX-Builder vs Zion-Builder comparison to the end. These page builders are very similar as they are both in a well-known theme. The quality of the page builders is also comparable, both are first class page builders. What makes Zion-Builder more attractive is that it is available separately as a plugin and can therefore be used in any theme. Winner: Zion-Builder.
