Default Received replacement device - new or refurb?

I received a replacement S4 today from Asurion. I was expecting a refurb of course, but I feel like it might be new. It has the little plastic around the edges, the qualcomm sticker on the top, etc.

Is there a sure way to tell?

Honestly it doesn't really matter, but I'm just curious

There's an s4 app that will tell you how many times the USB and headphone jack have been used. Not sure of the name 😯

It's called "Phone INFO *Samsung*"
Not "Phone info".

Scroll all the way to the bottom and you'll see the charger and headset connection counts.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
