    While using it one-handed? I put my thumb near there while holding it and I almost always press it.

    I think that's what the Home button sensitivity is for, try adjusting the sensitivity level to see if that will help you avoid accidental presses in general but mostly in games.

    If hard pressing the home button is the issue easiest way i found is getting the game tuner app from samsung it seems dumb but there's actually couple of usefull functions on it (custom resolution on a per app basis,locking the hard press in game,screen recorder etcs).
    My home button never showed in any game my only issue was the hard press but no more and the resolution scalling per app is usefull imo.

    I wish I could give you about 1000 likes right now. I didn't realize in the game tuner there was an option to turn off the hard press in games. Thank you so much.

    Sometimes when picking it up, but it does't really do anything except vibrate.

    I was doing it all the time when picking it up when the device was sleeping. I kept inadvertently waking the phone with my "hard press" when I picked it up. I changed it the hardest setting from the sleep screen and now I don't have any issues. I never press it accidentally otherwise.
