Conclusion:

Some wordpress themes are like five fingers of a hand which cannot be compared and cannot be separated. I found these five themes (Avada, Enfold, X, Divi and Jupiter) like the five fingers of a palm. All of them are multi-featured, multi-purpose, fully responsive, Search engine optimized and they have been chose by maximum number of people. Also believing that nothing in this universe is perfect, I tried my best to collect their downsides too. Understanding documentation becomes always a problem for newbie but once you understand they give no any stress.

Among these five themes, Avada has been best choice of mine and of others too because of its impressive design, customer support, multi-features, etc. A website contains your important data, so think many times before choosing other themes rather than these five.

I won’t claim saying other themes are not good, some might have been un-understood by me, or unfamiliar to me. If you have used other themes and have got features as much as these themes give, please don’t hesitate to mention them in the comment box below. Or if you have used these themes and you want to add something here, you are welcomed to comment so that our visitors will get more information. 
Also, share this post to your friends so as to clear their confusion in choosing the best wordpress theme for their site.
