    Hello there. I've just replaced my good ol' 3GS to 4S(God, it's blazing fast), but in 3GS I had more-like clicky pressure when pushing home button. In 4S home button has more, more softly click than 3GS. And volume buttons - volume down is fine, volume up requires more pressure and doesn't have clicky sound. And when you click on the edge of volume up, it hardly catches. It is normal?

    Volume buttons should feel the same, at least they always have for me.
    Concerning the home button, I've had two iPhone 4s and the first one had a noisy click while the second one more of a soft click. Both worked equally well though, so I guess as long as the button works, it doesn't matter if it clicks or not.

    You're right, just wondering if there were some changes. In 4S home button click is much more shallow than 3GS, whereas 3GS has loud, juicy click ;)

    Lock/power button is as same as volume down, volume up has a feeling like it's blocking inside, but also works properly.

    And I also noted that vibrations are different. In 4S are more powerful.

    There's a different vibration motor in the 4S, but as far a I know it's actually supposed to feel a tad softer than th previous ones. And in the iPhone 5 they went back to the older vibration motor (pre-iPhone 4S) because that one's smaller.

    I actually like the vibration on the 4S better, but that's a matter of opinion, I guess!
