Yes it is. The area that you push, called the home button, is not level with the face of the phone. It's indented down, as if you dug a little hole into the screen of the phone. So when you put your finger into the home button, it kind of nestles right into it. I hope I have explained this to you well enough. If you have more questions, you can leave them for me in the comment area and I'll try to explain it another way.
