This is the weak link and probably the major reason for returns. We all at one point or another have had the home button acting up. Let's face it, at 2012 why are we still going to have the next iPhone with a physical home button? I have a few devices with capacitive buttons and they are a major improvement over physical buttons. Also eliminating the physical home button with a capacitive one frees up room for display real estate. I'm predicting that this year will be the last iPhone with a physical home button. I really can't see Apple being that stagnant as to not bring this much needed improvement ever. Apple users are among the most OCD people that are reluctant to accept change even if it's good for them. So for the nay sayers that don't like change....were getting a larger display this year, like it or not.
