    I hate it, it's not comfortable to click and always slow in reacting
    really hope iPhone 5 has no button, like Nokia N9, it looks good.

    Tactile to click, never slow, always responsive...you must have a duffer.

    Are you fishing for reasons to jump to Android? If so, good luck, see you around soon.

    I like the button, but every phone that i've owned it breaks just before the new iPhone comes out. it's like a turkey popup timer to buy a new one.

    I liked the home button at first until over time it begins to build up dirt/dust and becomes unreliable after 1+ year of use. I bought my iPhone 4 on launchday and you would expect it to at least last until the iPhone 5.

    No problem with the home button; use it still more often then four-finger gesture to get to the list of running apps on my iPad

    You guys are making fun of the OP, but double clicking the home button is pretty goofy. Doesn't register some clicks, is delayed, or registers too many clicks.

    I don't like or hate the home button. It's just necessary to have for now and I don't think there is a viable alternative yet that works for the vast majority.

    I'm fine with the home button. Kind of like it actually. Fits into the simplicity of Apple's philosophy. Perhaps a bit too simple though. Kind of like the one button mouse.

    I love the home button. I hope they never take it away in future iPhones

    I loved it until it wore out prematurely on my iPhone. Good thing Apple stepped up and replaced the phone under warranty. Now everything works properly again. :apple:
