Default Note 3 scuffs on the bezel

Hi guys. I am new on this forum. I got my note 3 a few days ago. Did anyone else notice little points on some places on the bezel? Came like this out of the box. I returned it to the store and got a new one but the finishing of the bezel was much more worse then the previous one. Its a shame that for a phone this expensive it has poorly finishing. Also will a click on flipcase damage the bezel even more if you take the phone out from time to time? Oh well its a phone and for usage...

Thanks for the feedback.

seems the bezel is easy to get damaged! a friend of mine droped his phone about 20cm on the (very fine grained and paint-sealed factory concrete) floor, and the bezel has 2 about 2mm big places where the chrome-like layer chopped off. looks horrible...

Mine isn't that deep or big to notice all of that.

Mines horrible. Got plenty of scuffs on the top edge showing the black colour underneath. Never dropped it, never lay it flat - not sure why its rubbing off already!

Anyone had any luck fixing these? Bezel replacement, painting chrome etc?
