The past couple days the home button has been sounding different. If I press it after it has been in my pocket, the first press will make a noticeable click (happens before the point of pressure needed for the phone to register). However all presses after the first, the clicking sound will sound a lot healthier and happen at the pressure needed for the phone to register a press.
Have I got a fault, or has the button simply "wore in"?
I bought my S3 used, it definitely has a cheap plastic clicking sound. I can lightly tap the home button (not press) and it makes a rattle sound also. The button seems to have a little wiggle to it too. Very annoying, but the button works good. What's weird is it doesn't make the noise consistently, very randomly.

Re: S3 noisy home button?
U should fill out your profile john mate
Mostly so people know which model youre using but also 'coz im nosey lol
My home button is and always has been completely solid and doesnt make a noise but you can feel when youve pressed it far enough.
Having said that, i dont use that button much, i multitask and clear ram with other apps.
To me it seems ugly but fairly well engineered tbh man
