It's not hard to press, just harder to press than soft on-screen buttons.
By the way, I love the look of the two soft buttons. When they're lit up, they look metallic, like they are a physical part of the case. And when they go dim, they almost completely disappear. The first time I picked up the phone and watched the soft buttons go dim, I thought I had just seen a magic trick.
