    It took a bit of time for me to get used to the new button. At first I didn't like it but now that I've had the phone for a month I'm used to it.

    The first time when I have used the new button was on a iPhone 7 Plus that was in a large local store and a LOT of people was all over it, and then my thought was "that button must be broken!!!" )) It was not like the other buttons, it was not pushing down ... so weird! I HATED it.
    Now, after using my phone for 2-3 weeks I got used to it, but I still preffer a lot the old buttons.

    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 @.@
    Glad to know it makes sense after a while.

    I love the new home button. I definitely prefer the new button over the prior one. I have had a much better experience with the new home button on my 7 Plus.

    It's not as bad as lack of headphone jack but I prefer the old one.

    See, I think the removal of the headphone jack was a great move on Apple's part.

    It's awesome to NOT have a headphone jack? What possible harm does a headphone jack do to the phone? Apple CEO just took a 15 mil cut in pay due to stupid decisions like losing the headphone jack. Wait until BlueTooth alternatives are ubiquitous THEN dump the jack.

    The title of the thread is "How do you like the new home button?". I'm sure the previous poster was replying to that.

    No worries. For the record, I also don't think Apple removing the headphone jack was awesome.

    Buy a pair of AirPods if you didn't already and you won't even notice the jack is gone.

    Ontopic: I still stand by my previous statement that I like the new home button better than the old one. I had to set up an old iPhone 4S for my 84 y/o grandfather today and it's home button was totally worn out. I had to press extra hard each time to use it. And with the current home button that is a non-issue.
