    A glass home button wouldn't be good for the responsiveness of the home button. There's nothing they can do.

    You can always buy one of those full-body skins and apply the part for just the home button. Or you can just not let the OCD take control of you and let it be :p

    It's a problem if the glass screen scratches because that affects the clarity of the display. It's less of an issue if the home button is scratched. Relax and just enjoy using the phone!

    I don't believe the button has the oleophobic coating.

    Man up, already.

    A wittle scwatch on the home button is no big deal. Only you owning the phone will even notice or care.

    Don't let imperfections control your mind into insanity. An "obsession" for anything and anyone is unhealthy.

    This is what I think will be especially bad on the white iP4. Only reason why I'm hesitating getting little whitey.

    based on most of your posts, I'd say your nutcase status is independent of your home button issue.
