    First impressions

    1. Home button feels like a button. The taptic feedback makes it feel/sound like a button
    2. Speaker is louder than the 6/6s+
    3. Came with iOS 10.0 preinstalled
    4. Raise to open is annoying imo
    5. JB is a fingerprint magnet, but it looks awesome
    6. Amazon Screen protector fits perfectly
    7. 121.97GB Capacity, 116.69GB Available
    8. No Yellow Tinting

    I'll post some pics when I take some.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the home button right away, it's restoring right now so I will see how it feels again in a bit. Felt like the whole bottom of the phone shakes instead of a button click.

    So you're saying Apple suceeded in simulating a click with the haptic button?

    Or is the click more like a buzz?

    Definitely feels like a click to me. If I wasn't playing close attention, I would think I was just hitting a normal button.

    Yup it feels that way to me too, the bottom shakes but as it being digital, its not laggy. Pretty consistent like a real button.

    #8 I knew it Jet Black models go through Extra quality control steps and People with Yellow tinted IPhone 7 Pluses got suckered. iPhone 7 does not have True Tone. Your display is pee yellow your was not a quality display period it went through so Apple could meet yield and demand.

    I think some said it was more a buzz than a click, hence my asking. Maybe someone will post a poll so we get a number of respondents.

    Appreciate the post though.

    But what you describe sounds more like a buzz (and not a click).

    I've been very impressed with the click of the home button. My wife had to play with it a minute because she swore it was still a button.

    What always struck me as really nice is the feel/sound when scrolling anything with a wheel (i.e. Timer in Clock app). Very crisp/real sounding and feeling.

    I can confidently say it feels nothing like a buzz and very much like a click.

    Also what case will you be using? I'm sure want to show off that Jet Black finish. But Apple's cases look great at the same time.

    Looks good. When I get my phone I may get a clear case.

    This is making me go o_O because several reviews now have said it doesn't feel like a click, but like a weird buzz. Maybe we each perceive it differently?

    I haven't ordered/bought my iPhone 7 yet but I'm curious as to what people think of the button as that's the biggest in-your-face change this generation.

    That why I'd love to see a poll. I've seen both viewpoints...dunno who to believe.

    I've no plans to drop in and try the new phone just yet.

    Because even with the phone off it still has a slight click to it...
