    Default Samsung galaxy s4 home button concern.

    when I first got my s4, the home button felt great and it was really pressable, after 2 months of usage , now it feels hard and if I don't press it for a long time. It makes a weird cracky noise, is it worn out and broken ?

    I wouldn't worry about this kind of stuff unless the functions controlled by the button stop working. It's an electro-mechanical switch, so it can develop mechanical problems, but that's not particularly important if it keeps working as a switch.

    Mines doing the same, as its under warranty i'm going to send it in when I get the chance

    Regardless of if the switch still works or not, obviously something is developing a fault

    Apparently when they developed the S3 they tested the button for 200000 presses, so my S4 is way below that!
