    The iPhone Home button that you touch, floats in space in the glass cut-out circle of the front screen and the holding aparatus below it. Since it is a moving part there has to be some degree of free play or looseness. But how much is subjective. Since it bothers you, I think there is too much free play. Here is what I would do, make Genius reservation, go to Apple Store a few minutes before your appointment, test some of the iPhone 5 display models. See if your iPhone 5 Home button is different. If yes, then when you see the Genius show them the problem and it will be handled right there.
