We compare two of the most popular WordPress themes for the construction of websites of the moment here. Divi has only a pro version, Neve has as well a free- as a pro version. Neve vs Divi, which is the better theme? We start with Divi which does not mean it would be better.
The Divi Theme
There has been no theme that sells better than Divi in recent years. In this Divi Theme Review, we’re going to see if that’s the case again this year. Divi Theme does not have a free version so all its popularity is only due to their pro version which is remarkable. Most of the best-selling themes also have a free edition with which they have made a name for themselves. Divi is just so good, it sells itself.
Divi's Advanced Gradient Builder
So let’s get straight to the point and start with one of the two remarkable new features in Divi. The first is the Advanced Gradient Builder. With this tool you can create the same gradients for your background and the like as in Photoshop. Divi’s gradient tool does not mix 2 colors like the gradient tools of other themes, but as many colors as you want. Check it out below in the image or directly on the Divi site.
Divi's Lay-Out Cloud
Immediately the next spectacular feature is the Divi Cloud. Immediately the next spectacular features is the Divi Cloud. As you already know, you can use Divi on as many sites as you want after purchasing it. From all these websites you can access your cloud where you keep all your important building blocks that you may need on these sites. The photo below clearly shows what kind of things you should think about. This feature saves both professionals and do-it-yourselfers a lot of time. Immediately view the information that Divi itself provides about their new Cloud.
Divi Theme's Rating
The Divi Theme was created by Elegant Themes which is a company that treats everybody right. This count for the clients that buy their themes, and also affiliate marketers. That everyone is extremely happy with Elegant Themes is easiest shown on a good review website like Sitejabber.com. On the image below are also the numbers from 2 other review site. They just score everywhere more or less 5 out of 5 on average.
Divi Theme Review Demos
Divi offers a very large number of demo websites and demo sections. The image below shows that for “Business” designs alone, there are 603 total layouts to choose from. With such an abundance of well put together designs, it is easy to find a suitable layout for every niche. Here you’ll find their complete demo library.
Divi Theme & Woocommerce
Have you always wanted to be able to customize all Woocommerce pages such as the product pages, check out and cart pages? With Divi that is all a piece of cake these days. Divi uses the so-called WooBuilder for this, the top of the line in this area.
Stunning examples of Woocommerce product pages can be seen here if you scroll down to half of the page and click on the 9 different demos there.
Of course, the WooBuilder discussed earlier in this Divi Theme Review is part of the DiviBuilder. A lot more can be said about the DiviBuilder. For example, it has the best inline text editor on the market and is a well-oiled machine for the rapid construction of websites and webshops. Below is a quick demonstration of some features. The DiviBuilder can be tested by yourself here.
Divi Theme Load Speed
The loading time of websites is now of global importance and the latest speed upgrade that they have implemented at Divi is a good improvement, although Divi was already fairly fast. You can read more about this speed upgrade here.
Divi Theme Review Shape Dividers
You can create beautiful transitions between the different sections on your pages with this advanced tool. The same applies to backgrounds with, for example, transparent images. Here you can read more about Divi’s Shape Dividers (including video).
Divi Theme Effects
All wonderful what the Shape Dividers above can do, but with Divi you can apply many more effects and filters to your images, with Divi’s Effects. Here you can read more about Divi’s Effects (including video).
Divi's Split Testing
Split testing, also known as AB testing, is great for people who want to get the most out of their pages in terms of leads and conversion. Complete pages or parts thereof such as sections, images, or buttons can be made into 2 or more different versions that are alternately offered to the website visitors. Your own website keeps track of the statistics for you which version was more successful. Read here more aout Divi’s Split Testing.
Divi's Bulk Editing
Save a lot of work with this feature. In the past, many tasks within web design were performed countless times, which is of course very boring and tiring. What are the “Save as Global” and “Templates” with the Elementor page builder is called Bulk Editing with Divi. Read more about Divi’s Bulk Editing here.
In the past, images were often modified in Photoshop before uploading them to a website. With Divi’s Transforms, that is no longer necessary. Standard images can be skewed and rotated in many ways. The handy thing about this is that you can make other adjustments later, just within the website itself. Here you can read more about Divi’s Transform (including video).
Divi Theme Review Conclusion
You will have noticed my enthusiasm for this theme in this complete Divi Theme Review. With Divi everything is possible and it is full of features that other themes do not have. It is not for nothing that Divi is the best-selling theme today, it is highly recommended. There is so much more to tell about Divi, but if your interest has been piqued, read on on their own website.
Let’s continue this Neve versus Divi Review with the Neve Theme.
The Neve Theme
In this Neve Theme Review, let’s see if this theme is really as multi- functional as its builders claim. The theme should be lightning fast, suitable for blogs, corporate websites and webshops. Like many other well-selling themes, Neve has built up a name as a popular free theme to start with.

The Neve theme has built up an impressive rating on WordPress.org as shown in the image below. In addition to the rating figures, you can see a few comments from users, the opinions about this theme are on average very good.
Neve Review Starter Sites
Neve is full of starter sites, also called demo websites that can be installed with 1 click. As is the case with Astra, Neve offers starter sites specially made for the various top page builders. In this way, everyone is catered for with designs for his favorite page builder from which he can start his project. These are features that we have to give full marks for, beautiful!
Neve Theme's loading Speed
Websites today need to load quickly to attract visitors and to get good results in Google’s search results. Below you can see a test where I tested Neve. The test was performed after installing WP-Rocket, the best cache plugin out there for WordPress, and with optimized images. The test was done at GtMetrix.
Neve Theme Review: Woocommerce
Neve is a multipurpose theme but is less than a little specialized in the field of webshops. There are many features that make an online store look really professional. In addition, there are many settings to adjust product pages, check out et cetera. There are also several layouts provided for these types of pages that you can choose from.
Neve Footer & Header Builder
The Neve theme has a fantastic system for styling your header and footer down to the last detail. Also very nice is the incredibly extensive documentation that Neve provides not only for the Header Builder but for all the features we covered in this Neve Theme Review. You can find the documentation by clicking on “Docs” in the main menu under “Support”.
Neve Extra Information
There is so much more to tell about Neve. For example, the theme has an Elementor Booster, a Blog Booster, Flipcards as shown below and a large number of other features. I want to keep this Neve review short and to the point, but if it piqued your interest, just continue reading on their own website.
Neve Theme Review Conclusion
The Neve Theme has several impressive features including the beautiful demo layouts that are already prepared for the different page builders. The many features for web shops also immediately catch the eye. There is also the complete series of boosters (plugins) that make it a great theme. Neve deserves its top rating and is definitely recommended for building any type of website.
Neve vs Divi Conclusion
To start with, Divi and Neve are both very good themes. Both are suitable for building web shops, blogs, portfolios or corporate sites. Divi of course works with its own great DiviBuilder and Neve can also use the DiviBuilder, or
Elementor and even more page builders, the choice is yours. Overall, of course, Divi is a bit more mature and has a lot more to offer than Neve, making it the better choice. Thanks for reading this Neve vs Divi comparison to the end.
