An AWESOME feature on the home button of the 5s was added! It seems cool at first but if just three or four scratches on it, it loses the feature!

I've had mine since a couple weeks after launch day and no issues. How did you get scratches on it?

You pretty much have to intentionally scratch the home button if you want to damage it to the point that the scanner won't function. It's pretty durable. It's also under warranty for a year. I'm guessing that the OP didn't really scratch his. So why start a discussion thread on the topic if you aren't interested in discussing it?

Agree, the OP is just trolling here.

I will say after using it a little more, I'm getting used to it now. I've now created a few finger ID's. Watching the video on how to create the finger print properly certainly helps :)

There is a big difference between boosting the post count prior to spamming (which is what I am suspicious of) and trolling.

Yes I suppose, in any event my point was really that the OP had no interest in keeping up here...
