Gutenberg editor vs Page Builders

WordPress 5.0 had something that will close store for most of the page builders, the Gutenberg editor . In a way, you can call it a free, default, official page builder for WordPress. I hope a lot of you have moved to v 5.0 and has tested the new editor.

The question is, which one do you find more appealing ? Is Gutenberg enough, or are we looking for more scope which some page builders offer ?

That is a misconception. While Gutenberg editor works more or less like a page builder, it lacks a lot of features which page builders offer. Drag and drop for example.

Yes, there are too many blocks in page builder. I think the live preview is also a plus for the Page builders.

Editing through the front end is definitely an upper hand for the mainstream page builders. Even the free version of them allows it.

Read an article by Namecheap. In that most WordPress developers feel positive about Gutenberg editor. Also, they think that premium themes like Divi and page builders are going to stay. They have no threat from Gutenberg editor. Some were even quoted saying that blocks are not roadblocks.
