I second this. You get used to it after a couple of hours and it's definitely easier in your hand but trying to wake the phone from a flat surface is beyond annoying.It's better when holding in hand, worse when sitting flat on a table. They really need to add an option to touch the home button to wake the device.
I came from a galaxy s7. I love this new home button that's one of my favorite things, I got the Matte black regular 7 32gbHi
I am considering getting an iPhone 7 Plus, but was a bit put off by the new home button when trying it out in store.
So, people who already have the phone and played with it: did it bother anyone else? Did you get used to it, if so how long did it take you to not notice it anymore?
