    Excellent, the old one feels weird to me. I hated how the old one had different feels on different iPhones/ipads, clicky, wobbly, etc. The new button has solved that.

    I agree. I use "Raise to Wake" all the time on my phone. It took a little getting used to, but now it's great!
    Huge fan of "Raise to Wake." That and hold to unlock. The combo is brilliant.

    I just realized I don't use both of them much. Raise to wake is the way to go.
    With the way my phone rests in my car at times the raise to wake feature doesn't always work. But aside from that it is a great alternative.

    I like it a lot. Took no time at all to adjust to it.

    I'm much more impressed with it than I thought I'd be. Very nice upgrade from the previous button.

    For most people, the haptic feedback can go both ways. I personally don't like the new home button, but I know people who prefer it to a physical button

    It did seem different at first but now the old home button seems mushy. Give the new one a try you will like it.

    I absolutely love it! It took me a few days to really get used to it but once you do, older buttons will feel extremely odd in comparison.

    Do you get more used to it over time? Or have you used it a while and still dislike it?

    I took me a day or so to get used to it and like it. As may have been posted above, you can adjust the amount of feedback it gives you. I now like it just fine. If anything, getting used to having to use an adapter for 3.5mm headphones is a much bigger adjustment for me. ...and after a week, I'm still trying to not mind so much, but I knew what I was up against going in.

    I'm not a big fan. I can't hit it with my fingernail anymore, and can't double click as fast as I could with the old buttons. I have to get back into the habit of 3d touching the app switcher. I basically have to think of this home button as first and foremost a Touch ID sensor with pressure sensitivity. If I touch it in a way that wouldn't work with Touch ID, then it also won't "click". It also takes more pressure to click than is comfortable in some orientations. It'd be nice if the pressure required to trigger it was adjustable along with the strength of the feedback.

    Been using it about 8 weeks just a pain for me. Getting the timing correct, sometimes it works perfectly. I love the button back as with my 5s by my bed.

    It's taking some time for me to get you to the pressure needed but overall I like the new home button.

    It took like an hour before I got use to it and it was out of mind.

    Now phones with the physical home button feels weird to me.

    I personally like the new home button better and I feel less guilt clicking it. I know it's weird but with the old physical button I had this weird guilt that every time I clicked it was one more click closer to breaking it...

    Now I'm clicking it guilt-free @.@

    Great concept. Nothing to get fouled. A crunchy home button is like something stuck in your teeth or sand in your eye!!

    And if your phone's screen is off and you're wondering if it's even powered up, try clicking. If it's off there's no click.

    Downside it doesn't work with gloves.

    Doesn't work on wet or damp fingers but besides that all is good.

    I was thinking about this the other day. If l cut small slot in my gloves in the middle of the thumb, l can slide it through and do the business with the key. Without taking the gloves all the way off. Should l patent this idea :-)

    North face ETip gloves are awesome and work with the home button. Both my husband and I use them. Really warm too.

    I like the design of fingerprint unlock on home button, this design more convenient than other brand smartphone on the back.

    I don't mind it. It doesn't feel too different from the old one yet it feels improved and more natural. If that makes sense.
