Default 3DS XL problems

Okay, so I received my Blue Pokemon 3DS XL in the mail today. As my original 3DS had problems (a few dead pixels, dust under the screen), I wanted to inspect this one very carefully. The first thing I noticed was the back-plate comes out of its placement easily, but searching online, this is normal. Now, my real problem is dust under the screen, again. I am fairly certain there are 2-3 marks in-between the two screens (or behind the second one). I try to use a micro-fiber cloth to get rid of them, but nothing happens. Do all 3DS systems come like this? I am probably going to exchange it.

My XL also has a loose back and that seems to be normal among XL's, but I don't believe I've ever had any issues with dust under the screen, with my original 3DS or XL.

Yeah, I guess the loose back is because there are only two screws in the middle of such a big area.

I returned it and got a new one. No dust or dead pixels, as far as I am aware Getting the Hori screen protector on the touch-screen was easy, the top-screen not so much... I managed to get it on, take it off a little to remove dirt (took like 3 tries) and then only end up with 2 tiny scratches on the screen protector from the applicator. I am happy so far. Now I just have to do the system transfer and memory card transfer (My Animal Crossing village better live).
