    Default S5 Home Button Clicking

    is it normal for the home button (physical button below the screen) on the Galaxy S5 to make a clicking sound when pressed? I find mine is quite audible. Its only a two week old phone.

    Its a slightly louder clicking than the vol. & power buttons.

    Also, pressing the home button from either side makes a softer click than pressing it from the middle.

    I got a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and my home button makes a clicking sound when pressed. I don't think it's a problem

    I guess mine clicks but it's not audible from any normal distance unless I'm in an EXTREMELY quiet room. The power and volume buttons are much louder.

    Mine clicks too. I didn't really notice until I saw this post though.

    Turn it off and dampen your finger with some rubbing alcohol. Then pad the edges of the button and it will go away. I did it and it is perfect now.

    you must have good ears, I have never heard any of the buttons make a noise of any kind.

    I can feel the tactile 'click' but not audible.

    If it's loud and feels off then you might want to have it checked. Also, try using a demo at a carrier store and see if it's the same or not. Let us know how it goes and what you end up doing.
