    Do you use the home button or lock button? Does it always turn on when you press it? Sometimes mine doesn't, does that happen to you guys?

    Home button due to Touch ID, and Yes, it always turns on.

    Home b/c phone generally face up on desk/table, so one finger/knuckle can easily wake it.

    Also, I have a case on it, so home button is easier to press than power button.

    Home button. Yes always turns on. Use ID'ed finger if going to apps. Use non ID'ed finger going to lock screen.

    im not sure if it doesn't turn on the first time I tap it or it is just lagging. I know I've had to push it a couple times to get the screen to wake up. I know what your talking about though.

    Let me guess. You pushed or thought you pushed one of these buttons and your phone did not turn on and NOW you want to know if it is normal!

    How close did I get?:p

    Mostly the home button so that I can use TouchID there as well, but sometimes the lock/sleep/power button.

    There have been times (fairly rarely) where the screen wouldn't turn on and I would need to press the button again (happened with either the home button or the lock button), and I've come across some posts from various other people who have experienced this occasionally as well.

    I use the power button to turn my iPhone on.. because my home button isn't capable of powering on the phone.

    Home button unless I'm just checking the time. Blasted fingerprint sensor is too sensitive!

    Home button every time but I want to change this to the power button but can't, I have been doing it too long. Touch ID is so fast now that if there is a message on the lock screen I totally miss it. I no longer see reminders and missed calls/messages unless I go to Notification center with an extra step. So, home button but need to modify my habit.

    Leave a finger unregistered for TouchID, or use just the tip of a finger to press the button. Problem solved.

    Home button but I wish it wouldn't turn to home screen so fast. It's the fastest I have ever seen a phone go to home screen ever. A pain if I just want to check time or date

    Either or. Most of the time it is my home button. It just happens to depend on how I am holding my phone.

    Interestingly enough I tend to use the lock button. Not sure why.

    Home button if I want to unlock it.
    Power button if I want to glance the time/date/notifications.

    It always respond.

    Same as above. Home button if I need to use the phone. And power button if I just need to glance at my time. But since I have an Apple Watch I barely even look at my phone for any notifications.

    Same here. Touch ID is so fast on my 6s that I use the lock button if I just want to see what is on the lock screen.

    I use the Home button. Even if I wanted to check the time.

    Very close. I pushed it and sometimes the screen doesn't turn on.
