    Since Touch ID was introduced on the 5S, the home button has produced stiffer feedback than on previous generations. So, simple question: do you like it or do you prefer how it used to be? I'm curious only because while I absolutely love the new button as I believe it feels far more deluxe, the vast majority of people seem to flat-out hate it. Some coming from older iPhones even have such a disdain for it that the phone appears defective to them.

    I don't have a problem with it. It feels fine.

    It feels fine to me, however I wish iPhones would do away with a home completely & replace it with a gesture area like on the Pre 2 & 3.
    Though I know this is unlikely, it would definitely be my preference.

    I barely even notice the difference honestly unless I'm paying attention because of threads like this. I've had almost all the iPhone's (except the original and 3GS) and the difference in clickiness doesn't bug me at all.

    When I first used it on the 5s I was not a fan, but after awhile it grew on me and I like the new version as it also seems to hold up better over time compared to older versions of the home button.

    Never noticed it really and now I just pushed it and heard the click haha still doesn't bother me though. Now the sleep button on the side however....I have a few gripes about. I love it and I hate it.

    Only difference I've noticed is the sexy silver ring. Pressing seems the same as always to me.

    When I just got the 6 I thought the home button was a lot clicker. However, I think it has broken in now and is less clicky.

    I never had home buttons problems with my 5, 5S and my 6 but with 3G, 3GS, 4, and the first batches of 4S, I change them minimum 5 to 10 times. But my 6 is PERFECT

    I thought I was the only one with an overwhelming affection for the silver ring. I bought the 5S in Space Gray (or Graphite as I called it for as long as I could as that was the rumored color name) partially because I loved the look of the back, but primarily because it was something fresh and new. I loved it but for the past year, I've longed for the beautiful silver ring. So, this time, it was game on and I wasn't leaving that store without a a 6 or 6 Plus with silver ring - so I got it, and so did you! 👏

    Nah, I don't think it would work as well without iOS

    Yeah, I know iOS wasn't designed around gestures like webOS was, but it would be awesome if it were. I just prefer using gestures over pressing a physical button.

    I honestly don't care. I came from an i5 and Touch ID is AMAZING! Every single time it recognizes my fingerprint.

    I like the more "clicky" button of the iPhone 6 vs older iPhones.

    The home button on my 6 doesn't feel all that different from my 5 or iPad Air. Feels pretty good actually. Firm and positive click engagement.
