Home button no longer responding to slight touches

History

I have had my iphone 4S for awhile and me and my girlfreind have been noticing that my home button is slowly becoming less and less responsive. The home button is requiring more and more force in order to register as a push.

It is currently functioning however the force required is not something i feel comfortable subjecting my phone to on an ongoing basis and double pressing in order to achieve multitasking is horribly inaccurate. it will frequently only register one push of the button

My guess is that the Home Button internal pad is worn out. The replacement part is the Home Button Flex cable. The repair requires that the Front Screen Assembly be removed to get to Home Button. A workaround is Assistive Touch. It is set in the Settings App -> General -> Accessibility -> AssistiveTouch -> turn it ON -> press white button on screen -> Home.

It seems the home button connector is loose or the home button is broken. You may have to disassemble the phone to check.
