Areas Covered by the Code Review?

Good code reviews look at the change itself and how it fits into the codebase. They will look through the[ clarity of the title and description and[ “why” of the change] They cover the correctness of the code, test coverage, functionality changes, and confirm that they follow the coding guides and best practices. They will point out obvious improvements, such as hard-to-understand code, unclear names, commented-out code, untested code, or unhandled edge cases. They will also note when too many changes are crammed into one review and suggest keeping code changes single-purpose or breaking the change into more focused parts.

Better code reviews look at the change in the context of the larger system, as well as check that changes are easy to maintain. They might ask questions about the necessity of the change or how it impacts other parts of the system. They look at abstractions introduced and how these fit into the existing software architecture. They note maintainability observations, such as complex logic that could be simplified, improving test structure, removing duplications, and other possible improvements.
