What are Defects or Bugs in Software Testing?

A defect in software testing can be understood as an error, flaw or a bug, in the app or software while being created. A developer while designing and building the software can make any unintended mistakes or error which simply implies that there are flaws in the software. These are called defects which can occur because of an error in logic or in coding which results into the failure or unpredictable and unanticipated results.

  • When the genuine results, even slightly, deviate from the predictable outcome while testing a software or application then it marks as a defect. Thus, any unconventionality from the specifications in the product’s functionality document is a defect in the software which can also be termed as software error, bug, issue, incidents or problem.


  • When the result of the software or application does not meet with the end user’s expectations or the requirements then it is said to be a Defect.
    When a QA software tester finds an error or bug in an app or software, it’s required to convey the same to the developers. Thus, they report those bugs with proper details which are called as Bug Reports, Issue reports or Problem report, etc.

When do you expect the errors to arise?

  • The consumer who is using the software application or product may not have enough knowledge of the product.
  • Maybe the software is used in the wrong way which can eventually lead to the defects or failures.
  • The software developers may have coded incorrectly and there can be defects present in the design.
  • Possibility of Incorrect setup of the testing environments.
