To handle the speed up with the fast-changing world, Physical stores have shifted in online, and regular-sized computer websites got responsiveness for mobile devices.

Its helps us to know that the theme we are testing can fit perfectly with all sized of device or not.

Zos is a no so perfect mobile-friendly theme. The header slider photos aren't optimized for a mobile device. The product images below header are having difficulties in loading both in desktop and mobile version. Otherwise, animations, parallax effects, content blocks, logo and menu size - everything looks impeccable on mobile devices. Blog pages look fine with a moderate seized thumbnail and social integrations.

We also checked the mobile consistency of the Sofani theme with Google mobile-friendly test and the result was positive with page loading issues. So we cant say that Zoa is a complete mobile harmonious theme.

Design Review

Speed Test Review

Quick responding websites are great - not only to the site owners but also to the visitors. When a website loads faster, it makes a decisive, happy impact on the audience, and crawling websites have a higher visitor bounce rate ration. Google pays more attention to fast loading websites and counts this criterion as a vital element for website ranking.

We have checked the loading speed of the Zoa Elementor WooCommerce theme on Pingdom. It scored 74(c) out of 100 with 4.77 seconds of loading speed. For now, we can say that it is a good score, but it still requires some correction. As the ideal loading speed of any website shouldn't be more than 3 seconds so, a few tweaks will be able to take this theme to a supreme position.

Web pages are becoming increasingly complex with more scripts, style sheets, images, and Flash on them. A first-time visit to a page may require several HTTP requests to load all the components. By using Expires headers and decreasing the number of pages components will make this theme faster. You can use a Cache plugin such as - W3 Total Cache to make these adjustments.
