    Is it me or the home button has a slight click sound when pressed?
    I don't like that

    maybe it's just mine, but this definitely has a different sound than before, I've got two older iPhones in front of me, and the 5S definitely has a more pronounced click sound when releasing than before

    I noticed the same thing. As long as the button keeps working, I can get used to it.

    Well a newer phone will have a louder click because the button isn't "worn in" yet.

    My 4S still has a clicky sound though, despite being 2 years old.

    But again, the iPhone 5S has a newly designed button, so I wouldn't be surprised if it sounded different.

    My 5 does that. It makes a very pronounced click when pressed. Like a real button should, not like that fake .wav excuse of a click sound effect (which is pretty good actually) on the software keyboard. Me like. Sent from my iPhone 5.

    Yep it's a tad more noisy (clickier!) than my 5.

    Yep! Definitely a louder click than my i5. It's a little firmer than my i5. I like it!

    The click sound on mine varies based on how the button is pressed. If I push toward the top it clicks, but if I push dead on, the click sound is less prominent

    A button will clicked when it's pressed!

    Also it sounds different because of the sensor behind it.

    And I thought mine was weird. I'm glad to know it's "normal."

    This is pretty much how mine is. If I press toward any of the edges of the button, or the bottom, it's a quiet click. If I click in the center/top center it clicks pretty loud. I wonder if this is just part of the new button design or if some aren't assembled correctly.

    You can definitely click it without it making a noise. Just experiment.

    I bought 3 yesterday. Mine is the only one that has a very weird click sound and feel. The other two seem normal. So I'm assuming this isn't normal if 1 out of 3 are like this. Hoping apple can exchange it without having to wait.

    My iPhone 4s home button click was nearly silent. It was very subdued

    When I got th iPhone 5 I noticed the click noise was very loud. It's stayed this loud too

    Perhaps apple is using a stiffer component for the 5/5S/5C

    that's what I was afraid of, I have had every single iPhone and iPad since the first one, and never experienced such a weird feel for the home button. Feels like a button you would get on another brand phone rather than Apple quality like button.

    I'll keep using it for a couple of weeks in case it gets smoother over time, but will look into a replacement if not.

    Don't worry, it's simply the fingerprint scanner's handshake with NSA.
