Intermittent and unreproducible software bugs complicate work of testers. The most sophisticated intermittent errors usually occur in course of mobile application testing.
As a rule, few defects can be unreproducible for a skilled, experienced tester, but searching for explanation and steps to reproduce for an intermittent error can be quite a difficult task for a novice tester.
However some software bugs found during web, desktop or mobile testing are hard to reproduce and to explain even for software testing experts. In this case a software testing company recommends its testers to reconsider their work and try to look at the situation with a fresh perspective.
It is also helpful to utilize some investigative methods performing software testing. One of them assumes add or exclude one or several factors at a time and see how this influences frequency of the intermittent defect occurrence.
