Frequently it is difficult for junior testers to determine what a software bug is. It seems easy only at first glance. But when junior testers enter upon web site testing, desktop testing or mobile application testing, they often are confused about various issues.

Odd behavior of a software product is one of such issues. Problems of this kind happen more frequently during mobile testing.

Mobile devices differ from other computers by certain functions. They are designed to work under various conditions, on the move. Mobile applications are meant to perform many operations simultaneously, for instance, locating the device during movement, supporting wireless communication and so on.

    A bug is anything that negatively impacts user experience! There is no discussion about that, even if some always try to disagree. Even if everything works as designed it can still be buggy (means the design is bad). Designers and developers should trust QA on that one. Rather have your tester complain about it than your customers.
