There are numerous solutions to protect almost every part of the iPhone, except the home button. Primarily because the the home button is not a smooth surface like the screen. But does anyone know a good, practical way to protect the home button without sacrificing functionality?

I ask because the home button on my iPhone 4 became super scratch... It looked weird because when I took off the screen protector, the screen was flawless and the scratched up home button stuck out like a sore thumb. I would like to avoid that with my new iPhone 5 if possible. Thanks in advance.

Otterbox Defender Series does a good job in my opinion. It sells for $50 but the level of support given is incredible.
