    I'm just wondering, would anyone want a flush home button? I just thought that a flush home button would aesthetically look nicer, have better tactile feedback and be easier to press than the concave home button? I've been through 8 iPhones and the variation of their tactileness has been different across all, some clicky some mushy and I just thought that a flush home button like the centre button on the clickwheel iPods would be so much better. Thoughts?

    Personally I'd like to see a physical home button disappear all together, on screen preferably. I know it's already been done on other smartphone(s) so it wouldn't be all that innovative. But it's a good solution for increasing screen size for movies and games without making the device physically bigger.

    I know a lot of people hate them but I'd even prefer a more durable capacitive button. I haven't had a problem with my home button but I feel like I press a thousand times per day so it eventually has to wear out.

    The concave button works well. It is easy to find by touch and protects it from damage.

    I think the concave home button feels awesome; it's more intuitive than a flush button would be.

    Hmm havent thought about it actually, might be cool to just convert the home button into a gesture.

    I like it the way it is and I really hope they don't get rid it of it anytime soon.

    I wouldn't mind either way. I guess if it goes flush I'd like to see it light up too!
