I like looking around Target when I'm bored. Even if I buy nothing, it's worth walking around and seeing if there's anything new. The atmosphere is great and the cleanliness and organization is always satisfying.

 

 

When I screwing around in Target yesterday, I realized that they had Iphone 7's available for display/purchase(surprised they didn't sell out). I chose to look at the phone and see if theres anything neat about it. It didn't look that bad, and I expected myself to like it. That is, until I touched the home button.

There wasn't a click. No matter how hard I pounded the home button, it didn't make a sound at all(only a vibration). After looking at Apple's website, it seems as though it only provides vibrations when it senses a finger. 

I'm surprised how thousands of headlines were about the removal of the headphone jack, and yet no one even talked about how they messed up the home button. 

 

I put my shirt over my finger and tried to 'click' the home button- nothing happened. My guess on the button only responding to fingers is true. How the hell will people use this during winter? Not only that, but why did they take it upon themselves to make the home button like this? I get the headphone jack, but now the home button? What was wrong with it? It was perfectly fine, and yet Apple chose to mess around with it.

Move to warmer climate.  Problem solved. 



l <---- Do you mean this glitch Gribble?  If not, I'll keep looking.  

 

 

 

 

I am on the other side of my sig....am I warm or cold?

The iPhone is now more water resistant hence the removal of the home button. It's now a home touch finger sensor pad thingy so water can't seep into the button.

I can probably show you 7 phones released over the past 3 yrs (or three years before this iPhone) that had home/power buttons and even slots for SD cards/headphone jack and even a dedicated camera button...... all the while being "water resistant".

So its like the xperia home button?

Apple and samsung are pretty much there only ones that use a physical home button. As buttons lose their clickiness over time. 

 

But it works through a shirt and with gloves (medium to thin).



PS4 and PC gaming

 

PC Specs:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900x
Zotac Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
32GB DDR4 Corsair Vengence Ram 3200 mhz
1TB Samsung Qvo SSD
Corsair Spec-Delta Case
Asus ROG B450-F Motherboard

So you are either one of the people who allow the weather to influence their style of clothing or you are just one of those glove fetishists.

Gloves are obsolete technology. Just get with the times man or stick with last generations phones.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

I guess criticizing something you dislike means you're petty.

 

Critisizing isn't. But making a big deal out of non-issues and trying to apply non-arguments to make the complaint seem valid is.

You made a whole thread complaining about a home button that is fully functional. Yep, that's petty. Do you even have an iPhone or a real intention to buy one?

Actually do. 

It isn't big enough to make me not get one, but I was disappointed

Well that sounds a lot more measured. If it's really the biggest issue for you, then you'll probably enjoy the phone a lot.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I don't know about iPhone's home button specifically, but I've been happy with not having a physical home button for a while now. I didn't like the idea at first because I was used to a physical home button, but it's really not an issue at all. If anything, it's probably better because there's one less part that can break.

It's actually the first iPhone to really impress impress me since the 5s. 

 

I won't get it due to the fact that my phone is working quite well. It's a waste of money to buy a new phone if the one I have is perfectly fine

(On a serious note, I have tried pressing the home button on the 7, and it is weird af, honestly it bothers me a bit more than not having a headphone jack, cause I'm weird.)



if so thats still two giant fuck ups in one for 800€
