We compare two of the most popular systems for webdesign of the moment here. Elementor and Neve have as well a free- as a pro version. Neve vs Elementor, which is the better platform? We start with Neve which does not mean it would be better.
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.
Neve's Rating 4.8/5
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.
Let’s continue this Neve versus Elementor Review with the Elementor pagebuilder.
Elementor Page Builder
Elementor is now pretty much one of the best-known page builders for WordPress. The page builder continues to improve, just like their own website, which is getting better and better. In this Elementor Review, we’re going to take a look at why Elementor is loved by such a large audience. The addition of their own theme called Hello Elementor certainly plays a part in their success.
Elementor Page Builder Review
The elementor pagebuilder works very fast and is very easy to understand for every layman. This does not mean that professionals do not like to work with it, on the contrary. This website was put together by me with Elementor and everything runs smoothly. Below you can see how you can build a page in the blink of an eye using drag & drop.
Elementor Review 90 widgets
Elementor has about 90 widgets which you can see here, a very high number for a page builder. Another word for widgets is elements, which immediately explains the name of the page builder. There are a lot of companies that offer extra widgets for Elementor like for example one of the best: Astra’s Ultimate Elementor. Below check out the basic widgets (the pro widgets appear on hover).
The Navigator appears floating when you right-click a widget and select “Navigator”. You now see a list with all widgets and sections neatly under each other and you can jump anywhere quickly. Everyone will use the Navigator in their own way. I mainly use it to drag widgets or sections to another position. Without the Navigator, this is sometimes a very difficult task.
Elementor Conversion & Leads
Leads and conversion are of course very important for every website today. In the example below you can see that Elementor has very nice designs for forms, landing pages and the like. You can read more about Elementor’s conversion here.
Elementor Review Woocommerce
In the widgets chapter you already saw a whole block with extra widgets for Woocommerce. Every self-respecting theme or page builder these days is well prepared for the collaboration with the most popular plugin for E-commerce called Woocommerce and that goes for Elementor as well. Read more about everything Elementor has to offer for the construction of shops here.
Elementor's Theme Builder
In this Elementor Review we are not going to forget the ThemeBuilder, of course. The Themebuilder has been added with one of the latest upgrades and gives total control over the headers, footers and other global items on your website. The adjustments you make here are carried out on your entire website in one go. Read more about the Theme Builder here.
The absolute best program for popups for me is Poptins, but we can see here that Elementor already has popups integrated which makes it practically unnecessary to spend any more money on it. Pop-ups, if used properly and not annoying, are certainly a great way to increase sales in affiliate marketing or generate more leads for businesses.
Elementor has very reasonable prices regardless of whether it is for 1 website or many websites in the case of a professional design agency. If you purchase Elementor, buying a theme is basically unnecessary, which makes the page builder even more attractive.
Elementor Review Conclusion
It is with great pleasure that I have written this Elementor Review. It’s always nice to write about a good product that sells itself. Elementor is simply one of the best page builders out there. Tastes differ, so one has it at 1 and the other at 3, but we cannot deny that this is a top product. Elementor is an absolute killer.
Neve vs Elementor Conclusion
I close this Neve vs Elementor comparison with my personal opinion on both which is very simple. Neve is one of the best themes out there, and Elementor is the best page builder out there. On top of that, Neve is fully geared up to work with Elementor as shown by the 129 demos included for Elementor. These are therefore not each other’s competitors, but they complement each other. Neve + Elementor is a strong combination to quickly build good sites.
