5 unquestionable advantages of Magento 2 over Magento 1

Are you still in doubt if it’s worth to upgrade your store to the latest Magento 2 version? Here are 5 quick advantages of Magento 2 over Magento 1 that will help you to make a wise decision.

1. Improved performance

Without going deep into technical stuff, Magento 2 officially supports latest PHP versions including PHP 7. It features new security fixes and improvements that directly affect web store’s speed.

2. Faster Load Time

Store owners who use Magento 1 have to install lots of third party extensions in order to speed up the load time. Most of them relate to varnish caching, however, Magento 2 has it by default so you won’t have to clutter your store with this.

3. Improved Admin Panel

A more friendly Admin Panel in Magento 2 allows you to quickly make the needed adjustments while keeping everything at hand. Specifically, you gonna like a more robust WYSIWYG CMS Content Interface, improved Admin Menu Navigation and enhanced Product Page/Creation Interface. Just fill in fields, add images or video and save.

4. Images compression

Another way to improve store performance is to compress and optimize images so as to make it more lightweight. Magento 2 allows doing it more quickly using native tools compared with Magento 1 manual image optimization.

5. Full Page Caching

With full-page caching, a fully-generated page can be read directly from the cache which is way faster compared to the default Magento setting. In Magento 2 full page cache is available out-of-the-box, thus you don’t need to bother about it.
