Brand new iPad with scratches by the microphone?

I just got a brand new iPad Air 3 I ordered online from Sprint. It looked perfect on the front, and sides, but when I turned it over I saw what looks like someone took a very fine needled and scraped it back and forth over the microphone hole. At first I thought I would ignore it. But I am paying too much money for it and Apple products are supposed to be near perfect. I have never had an issue with my phones being scratched or anything so this is a first.

Anyone ever have this happen? Sprint is ordering me another one for me to switch out the other for, but I am just paranoid the next one will have some other issue. Is this common?

    Don't be paranoid. 


    Simply insist that it be replaced with one that hasn't been damaged.
