    Iphone 5 is the first iphone to use a metal support bracket for the home button. Previous iPhones had plastic/rubber and would become unresponsive after time. I'm wondering how the 5 is holding up for everyone. So far mine is just as good as day one.

    Mine is fine too. Historically the problem doesn't show up for most users until 1.5+ yrs.

    Mine has a few scratches, only noticeable in a bright light, and a little curved crack on the right, no idea how that happened..

    Mine is actually getting harder to press. It registers presses just fine, but requires pressing a little harder.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how responsive and clicky it felt coming from an iPhone 4 which was getting nearly unusable at the end. Glad I upgraded!
