    Is anyone else noticing the bottom Home button that looks like a little house is unresponsive at times. At times, I have to press it 2, 3 times before it will vibrate and take it to the homepage.

    This might be a learning curve. How long have you had your phone? Once you understand where to hit the button it should work everytime.

    I think the button works a little better when you turn off haptic feedback. Or maybe you just don't notice as much, when it doesn't respond immediately. :)

    I notice the same thing with all of the hard buttons on the bottom. At times, they just aren't responsive. Takes a bunch of tries to get them to work at times.

    Thank you my friend! Glad it's not just mine doing this. And no, I do not have a screen protector on there.

    Try using your pointer finger instead of your thumb. I found that my thumb was too big and was firing two buttons at once. Thus causing no button actions. This made the phone buttons seem unresponsive.

    Exactly. Most of the time they work great. Sometimes, I get the haptic feedback after pressing them - and then there is a long pause before anything happens. I used to mash several times, now I just touch once and wait - phone just seems to be a little sluggish sometimes.
