    I'm seriously thinking of getting a new iPhone 7 Plus. I'm not sure I would like the home button though. What do you all think of it??

    It didn't bother me at all. I adjusted to it just fine. I'm pretty certain most people have.

    I really like it. I have an Apple Watch so was familiar with the haptic. I was quite surprised how well it work on my 7 Plus. If you are not familiar with it, you should be within a couple of days. Like it better than the old home button.

    I love it. I use both a 7 Plus and an iPad Mini 4 daily and there's a dramatic difference. I often end up on the home screen on my iPad coming from the 7 Plus. Ha

    Have a 6s work issued and a 7 for personal use. I barely notice anymore. Sometimes when unlocking but never when switching between apps.

    Love it! It took almost no time to get used to it.

    Took me zero clicks to get used to it. Feels like the old mechanical one, especially on setting 3, which is what I use.

    I also like it better than the old style. It won't wear out as stated above.

    After a couple days, you will adjust easily and actually start to prefer it. Change is always hard since most people like what they had but NEW is sometimes better. The same thing happened with Macbook Pro users when Apple took away the click movement and replaced it which a vibration. I wouldn't worry to much about the new home button but if you are concerned, pop round to your nearest Apple store and play on one

    I really like it, don't have to worry about one moving part that could break. It toke me a day or two to get used to it.

    I got used to it mere hours after using it. It's much better and convenient.
    You'll love it, I'm sure.

    It's great until I'm using my phone while wearing gloves. Doesn't respond all that well then. That's my only complaint with it. Aside from that it's fine. I wouldn't say I prefer it over the previous button.

    Did you try out one of the dedicated smartphone gloves?

    Yup. I've got a pair. But they don't work reliably when trying to wake my phone up. It was much easier to press the button to wake my phone. Not a huge issue. I just use the power button instead.

    Good riddance to the mechanical home button. One less moving part that had the possibility of failing.

    The haptic button took a bit to get used to but it does a good job of tricking the brain into thinking it's mechanical.

    I just realized I don't use both of them much. Raise to wake is the way to go.

    I love it! It works so well. Sometimes I even forget it's not a physical button anymore.

    I'll say after 3 months of use, it's cool. But I definitely prefer an actual capacative button.

    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!

    As others said -- you will get used to it. At first it will feel odd but I would say a few days of using it and it'll feel normal.
