    Definitely like the new button. I love the fact it's not a mechanical button anymore and they can mimic the feel of a real button with the Taptic Engine. My biggest complaint with the old home button was that over time dust would get captured underneath it and drive me crazy.

    I'm using both my 7 and 6 now and every time I grab the 6 the mechanical button feels very odd, very strange.
    I didn't know I'd get used to the new button this quick, in only less than 36 hours.

    Agree. Have a work issued 6s and now a personal 7. Did an expense report on my 6s in Concur App and it was odd after using 7 since Friday.

    Adjusting to it on my iPhone 7 (not +)... setting is at 3. I also turned off the raise to wake, and enabled the touch / rest finger to open to avoid the pressing.

    I've heard some complaining about the home button but I think it is great! I have it set to 3 now and It really feels like a button. It is weird when the phone is powered off and you try to push it though.

    I didn't like that the "real" home button often clicked really loud for me. I prefer what is implemented now.

    Well I have to say I don't like it when I ride my motorcycle.. it seems like it needs the heat from your finger to register. With gloves on it never turns on and my gloves are smart phone friendly. Worked perfect on the 6s plus.... that's the only downfall I see, oh and pressing with your finger nail doesn't register either

    Its still a little odd for me...but to be fair, I still haven't got used to the haptic touchpad on my Macbook Pro either, and I've had it for quite a while now. Something about it just isn't as satisfying as a full on mechanical depression to me, but its hardly a "complaint", just a personal preference that I hopefully grow out of.

    Anyone want to try the phone with no haptic feedback?

    I don't actually have my phone yet so I can't say what setting i'll actually use. However I was in a best buy last night and looked at the new colors and played with the home "button" a bit and I like it. Maybe it's because I just came from Android a year ago and have never been a big fan of the physical home button, but the touch "button" with the bit of haptic feedback feels way better to me.

    Have mine on setting 2. I would always OCD'd on the home button. This is a great solution for me.

    I like it, using setting 3. I decided that I didn't like the rest-finger-to-unlock feature combined with raise to wake. So I'm doing press-home-to-open on, with raise to wake on. Maybe I'll change it back...we'll see.

    Not sure if it is my imagination or not but I feel that the click is stronger on the 7 plus vs 7. So I'm using the first setting in my plus.

    It sure looks like there's a ton of stuff for me to learn and get used to... coming from a 6 Plus.

    Does the 1, 2, or 3 represent how hard you have to press the home button or does is represent how strong the feedback is? Or both?

    In other words, is the pressure needed to activate the button the same and you choose different levels of feedback?

    The new home button has a strange familiarity to it. I've already adjusted in less than a week.
    Evilguppy and jpgti like this.

    I use setting 2, albeit setting 3 is more of a "button-like" feel. I am slowly getting used to it. It's a welcome feature, but I am not ready to say it is 100% better than the actual physical button.
