Am I too strong? This fake button doesn't fool me.

    It feels like I press down and get a vibration. It doesn't feel like a button press.

    I know I go to the gym every day and I probably press down too strongly, but I was expecting more then what feels like a stuck vibrating home button.

    But it's supposed to trick you into thinking it is one. At least that's what they said

    When they took away the headphone jack this caused positive pressure in the phone. So you are unable to push the button due to low testosterone. You may want to get one of them finger grip exercise things and work out a bit. Once you get strong enough, push the button again and that should offset the pressure and make it easier to push in the future. Due note, excessive use will keep the button easy to push, but if your phone sits around a lot, the pressure will build up again and make the button hard to push. I'm thinking of installing a pressure relief valve on mine.
    Hope this helps.

    More likely the button is too strong. Switch to "1" and it'll feel more natural like a physical button. I find "2" and "3" way too strong.

    It feels like a vibration. It isn't as slick as the touchpad on the MacBook because there isn't room for a larger, more accurate taptic engine.

    I have it on setting 1 and I love it way more than the physical buttons on prior iPhones.

    It took an hour or so to get used to it, now a few days in I can't believe we didn't get this sooner.

    I tried 1 and 2 and I hardly feel anything. I notice something on 3 but it still feels more like a vibration then a button press.

    I think I may try each one for an hour and see which one I like best.

    Did you test them on a table or in your hand? Some people report not being able to feel anything when it's resting on a table.

    In my hand. I've never used my iPhone 6s plus or 7 plus on a table since they came out with those ridiculous camera designs. I use a stand.

    You're right, it's even worse.......

    Shake it when you press it. Then you'll feel something.

    You should take it in and have the button replaced, the spring is probably broken.
