We have chosen a shop demo for a complete test. Since this theme has an explicit support for WooCommerce, so checking this particular template will give us a relevant result. We assayed this website on Mobile-Friendly Test, Powerd by Google.Com, and we have found this theme is compatible with Mobile devices.

We also run this demo on different mobile, and the result was satisfactory. However, this template has larges photos in its header slider, so a little portion of those photos will be invisible according to the display size. But it's not a huge issue as you will probably have your own images that you'll resize as per your needs.

Design Review

Design is essential for a website cause that is something people look at first sight. Porto has a beautifully minimal design with Legendary Revolution Slider and WPBakery Page Builder. It also has unique pop up Mailchimp integrations with excellent color choice. Carousel, Page set up, Image, Side Bar, and Header-Footer placement is just accurate.

We have visited different pages of this demo, and we haven't found any design-related issues. Everything looks pretty much standard. The sticky header menu bar looks elegant. The demo we reviewed has a blog section with a variety of blog post templates.

Speed Test Review

The speed test is an essential thing for a website review. Despite having an eye-soothing design, many visitors rather like to have enough swiftness in website browsing.

You can see Full page loading time is 3.8 seconds, which is a little bit above what is recommended. However, not that the score might depend on various factors such as server performance. Nevertheless, you can reduce the loading speed using Caching Plugins.
