    So the button on my iPhone 5 feels more "snug" then it did on my 4S and I was wondering if the new home buttons rumored a couple months ago were the ones used on this new iPhone?

    Did I Fix It or any other sites confirm?

    Probably because of the new way it is installed. There is a bracket screwed on directly to the screen assembly so it should be a tighter fit and feel more snug.

    Yes! :) Check out the iFixit tear down for the details, but they do mention the home button being more robust.

    Beside the awesome new display, this was one of the first things I noticed. I like it :D

    I was using my girlfriends 4 and I was mashing the button in. It sucks. Yeah I though the clips that come off the side are bigger on this one.

    Where do they mention it? What step?

    Since I have done iPhone home button replacement for iPhone 4 and 4S I hope Apple really have done it right this time.
