How did we select the theme on Themeforest?

How did we test?

This time, the tests are quite straightforward. We run the test at 3 different websites, Pingdom, GTMetrix and also Google PageSpeed Insight.

We basically just copy and paste the demo sites URL into the website and run the test. For Pingdom, we tested them using the Asia-Japan-Tokyo server, while for GTMetrix, the test server was from Vancouver, Canada using Chrome (Desktop) version 62.0.3202.94 and PageSpeed 1.15-gt1.2. According to Google, the page speed was tested using Lighthouse, by simulating a page load on a mid-tier device (Moto G4) on a throttled mobile network. The settings for the throttled network are

  • Latency: 150ms
  • Throughput: 1.6Mbps down / 750 Kbps up.
  • Packet loss: none

These settings represent roughly the bottom 25% of 4G connections and top 25% of 3G connections.

Pingdom Test Result

Referring to the Pingdom test result, there are 7 out of 10 themes scored more than 80 points in the performance. WooVina theme scored the highest performance points of 90 with the loading time of 4.44 seconds. Kona, Barberry, and Supro. are close to 90, with the recorded performance points of 89. While, Nels, Chromium and the hanger were able to score more than 80 and above.

Although some of the demo sites’ size is quite small and lower than 2.0 MB, but we did not observe any loading test result that is lower than 3 seconds in this case. The fastest loaded site is Nels in this test, with 3.37 seconds.

GTMetrix and Lighthouse Test Results

In the GTMetrix test, there are 5 themes scored more than 80 in the performance test. Kona scored the highest performance points of 96, while Tonda scored the lowest performance points of 26.

The GTMetrix test results are not consistent with the Google PageSpeed Insight speed test rating. Some theme scored better in GTMetrix but scored lower in the Google PageSpeed Insight test, and the other way round.

Final Thought

Overall, if we try to get an average for the speed performance test for these themes, the Top 3 themes in the best speed performance test are the hanger, Barberry, and Kona.
