Once I uploaded the file to Wordpress, I went to the live preview option, was shown the control panel and it didn't have even half the customization options that all other themes have.

We usually answer within a few hours.
Please consider to read the docs and articles about the theme, open topics at the support forum and rethink the one star rating.
My clients chose this Theme since they liked the way it looks. Looks are subjective so I can't judge. However, my 5* go to the support. Vlad was willing to fix the issues with conflicting plugin even after the support period was over which is a great sign to awaken a raving fan in me. Recommended.
Theme works great and I have found the support team to be really helpful. Been using the theme for a while now for http://www.OurBubble.nl The customizability is great. The theme offers you the possibility to create something that stands out.
I've been trying to customize this layout for a month now and I can't quite get it to how I want layout wise, let alone color scheme wise. I saw this theme used by another blogger, and I really liked it, so I purchased it. But it seems that the new versions of this theme are not worth it. The design is too confusing first of all. The "previous" and "next" links at the bottom of the post are not easy on the eyes. Just the whole end of the post is a mess. And then the comments at the bottom don't work properly either, even though I didn't customize any of that part. The choices for the main blog layout are minimal, which is fine, but the layout themselves aren't terribly appealing. This is "simple", but very boring and messy when it comes to customization. Would not recommend.
Sorry you feel this way.
We provide documentation and have a support forum where you can get free support.
Please contact us and we will be glad to help you in customizing the theme to meet your requirements.
This theme is light, fast and easy to use.
Even now that I have some trouble with the page builder, I can just continue working with the code and I still can work with my website without reinstalling all.
I put a 4 star out of a 5 because of this builder bug that makes me not able to work with it and hopefully I can work with the code (not everybody can do that).
But I'm sure that if I wanted, support would help me to manage this problem if I needed to (but I'm far after the 6 month and I don't want to put for it).
Overall, I very "very" nice theme for a blog and a simple personal website, with news and articles.
Thank you for the feedback.
You have not contacted us before so we do not know what is this bug you mention.
Even though your support period has ended you can still contact us using the contact form on our profile page or in the comments sections here on ThemeForest and will gladly help you to resolve this issue you are facing.
Good theme but could be better. Not very customizable but for those who like the "as-is" aspect of this theme, it would be suitable.
Thank you for rating the theme.
This rating is not accurate and misleading. Theme have a lots of options of changing colors and typography, various layouts for homepage and categories, post format support for single post, page composer for creating static pages, switching on/off and changing different elements, etc.
By viewing theme's multiple demos you can see that there is no default "as-is".
I have had this theme since 2014 and currently have v4.51, and it's still the best magazine theme in the market.
1. It looks clean and professional.
2. There are so many features that you can have a different looking site every month.
3. Documentation is easy to follow even for someone with limited technical knowledge.
4. Customer support is amazing both in terms of response time and customer service.
I highly recommend this theme. If 10 stars was an option I would give it 10 stars.
I've been running this theme for a few years now and love it! I've build many sites with various themes and this one is my favorite. If interested you can see what I build with it:
