Are you missing a mechanical home button on the iPhone 7?

Taptic Engine underneath. Moreover, this lack of a mechanical home button made the iPhone 7 easier to waterproof, and so on.First off, there are no wearing parts as there were with the clickable home key, plus the home key gives you varying degrees and patterns of feedback for different events, thanks to the excellent
The haptic feedback, however, which sort of just kicks the bottom part of the phone around, is not entirely similar to the satisfying clicky feeling when you pressed the button on previous iPhones, which may bug some people. That is why we wanted to ask you if you miss the old mechanical home key on your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, or if you have gotten quickly used to the new one.

Yes, the clicky feeling is not the same
No, I've gotten used to the new key

I don't have an iPhone 7 and neither does anyone else I know. I really want to try that home button however.

I have two family members with the iPhone 7 plus. It's kinda odd feeling at first. Once you press it, you can feel the press, but you can't feel it press in.

Also it sort of vibrates the whole bottom portion of the phone, which feels strange at first IMO its a good improvement since the new touchpad is far less likely to break than the mechanical button

As some of you might be aware, I just bought an S6... And needless to say; I couldn't be more happier...! But there are of course a few gripes here and there, and one of them is the 'Physical Home Button'... I DON'T LIKE THE PHYSICAL BUTTON ON MY SAMSUNG S6, PERIOD... The whole smartphone has a "button-less" interface, so why an 'ancient' clicker, I wonder? And that's one of my few complains about the S6... And come to think of it, its my BIGGEST complaint so far... I'm glad that Apple has gotten rid of the physical button, as that poor round thing does almost all the 'chores' on iOS...!!! And I am certainly glad to hear the rumors which 'allegedly' suggests that the upcoming S8 might loss the physical home button in favor of 'something else'... Perhaps Samsung might 'clone' the iPhone button...? (< A tad crude remark, innit?) Oh well... G'Day!

When you first use it, it takes a little getting use to but after that, it's perfectly fine. The only time it feel a little weird is when the phone is laying in a table and you hit the button. I really don't know why this question is asked as many Android phones don't have a physical home button.
