    Default What's your opinion on the home button? What setting are you using?

    Since this is my first iPhone I don't really have an opinion on it. It just feels like the entire lower part of the phone is clicking.

    Setting 2 and its takes a little bit to get used to it, but after a few hours I feel natural not pressing an actual button.

    In other words, is the pressure needed to activate the button the same and you choose different levels of feedback?
    No, the 1, 2 or 3 is how much haptic feedback you get from the Taptic Engine.

    I love the haptic feedback. I'm so used to it already.

    I have to say, this is something I thought for sure I was going to hate. It actually didn't take me long to get used to and I actually like it. I'm running it on setting 2 and that feels the most natural to me.

    The more I use it the more it feels like the button actually moves and clicks. This new home button is a huge improvement over any of the previous.

    I bought the 7 Plus for my wife a couple of days ago but am using it first to see how the phone is. Gotta say, I'm not liking the home button. I've tried all three settings and "1" is the one I'm most comfortable with. But I just don't like it. Doesn't feel like a press down at all instead of just feeling the engine literally shaking the phone. In other words, it doesn't feel as natural as the trackpad with force touch those Macbooks are. I'm very curious how Apple will do things when they remove the home button completely. Which I'm sure they will and there will be a bigger doodie-storm than the headphone jack removal.

    Started out on 1, went to two for a while, now back on 1. I think I like it there. I wasn't a big fan of the clicky mechanical button though and 1 reminds me of the haptic feedback from previous Android/Windows phones I've had when pressing similar use "buttons".

    To be fair, I was skeptical on the first day I got it, and even the second. Almost a week in now and I had to boot up my old iPhone 6s to transfer some pictures and the home button on the 6s felt reaaally awkward.

    Using setting two. Feels fine to me. Hard to engage the click when the phone is laying on a soft surface i.e. The bed.

    I prefer the new home button set on 3 instead of the original button.

    It took a day or two to get used to it but I like it now. I use setting #3. Anything less than that didn’t feel “solid” enough.

    When I first got my phone the new non-button was a little weird. After using it for only a few hours it wasn't weird anymore. I'm using the #2 setting for my home button.

    I just feel like I am still going to break it. I feel like it still is a regular button. My mind won't stop telling me not to use it.

    No complaints honestly. I do sometimes press with the tip of my finger as I did on previous iPhones. So it's just a matter of understanding the difference. Overall I don't have an opinion for or against the change. As long as it works, I'm good.

    Played with it at the store today. Do not see myself having a problem with it. Makes less noise, therefore I'm all for it.

    My first iPhone since IP3g and use an iPad Pro. Coming from android, I really like the new home button compared to the previous home button.
