Elementor Hello Theme Review

Although, theme loads faster. It doesn’t make any sense to the free version of Elementor users.

It only works well only with Elementor pro plugin because the header and footer need to be installed on it manually.

And, the option is not available on the free version of Elementor plugin.

Also, there is no vast difference in speed when compared with other Fastest WordPress Theme like Astra pro, Ocean WP, Genesis e.t.c.

Final Words From Me

According to my opinion, you can use any of the themes you like.

But, how you optimize your theme & which web hosting service you are using plays an important role in determining the speed of your site.

I personally recommend using Astra Pro Theme and Bluehost Web hosting because they are mainly optimized for using with Elementor page builder.

I had been using them for 3 years on my 3 different sites.

And, my site loads in about 3 seconds or less depending on the location of the visitors.
