Default got my xperia z2 plastic looks worn out

So i don't know where to begin, i ordered a xperia z2 the day it was announced but i was also going on a vacation with my family, so i asked sony if i would get my phone before leaving, they said no so i assumed they cancelled my preorder, anyway when i got home i decided to order it again from a retailer instead of directly from sony, when i got it i noticed that it looked well worn out, the plastic had spots and bits where the color seemed to be missing the metal frame also had very light faint spots, so i decided to ask for a refund.

This time i decided to order directly from sony, but it turns out the first one i ordered did not get cancelled so i received two xperia z2's in the mail, so i opened one of them and noticed the same problem, the plastic looked worn out so i decided to open the second one same problem there.

So i wounder is this normal? it looks like someone polished down the texture the plastic has to be completely smooth, it's missing that rough like texture a little here and there, basically causing the plastic frame to have tiny bits being smooth in the shape of small lines so to put it simple, black or dark lines at the top of the frame.

one phone even has a cut in it so it looks like someone took a needle sized knife and sawed in the plastic frame, and one has the protective plastic film on incorrectly, exposing 1 cm of the phone itself.

if i were to be entirely honest it dosn't look very new or premium with these problems, but considering i have three of them with the same problem i guess it's normal, please note they are all worn down differently lines are at random places so nothing identicle.

Well, to be specific there is some plastic around the aluminum frame.

Mine is textured but consistent along the entirety of the device. On both my Z2 phone and tablet. It looks exactly like the stock photos you'll find on Google Images. If you have something else, I'd take it back. Not sure how it could be worn already unless someone used it for a drop test video and then returned it. Or its a manufacturing defect.
