Wrap Up

In a nut sell, it is undoubtedly that EComposer surpasses LayoutHub in term of function variety & optimized UX, UI. If you're serious with your website design, it is highly recommended to use EComposer instead of LayoutHub.

I have used LayoutHub before and I find that the LayoutHub model is still lacking. After trying out EComposer, I found that this is a great improvement from the LayoutHub team, it’s like Shopify’s Elementor.
