It's deep down in there so I'm guessing it was there during production. It's faint enough that I only really notice it during a white screen, but it's right in the middle.

Same with my Vita, although it's only noticeable in direct daylight.

It's not worth agonizing over, is it.

It won't rub off? It's not a dead pixel?

Nah, I checked it with the screen off and it's still there.

Just exchange it at the store, but dust is no as bad as a stuck/dead pixel.

My Wii U remote has a tiny spec of dust, but I didn't exchange it since I'd have to return the entire console.

Plus you could always send it to Nintendo and they'll blow it out for you.

But if I exchange it at the store, I might get a 3DS that has even more dust in it :O

Then keep doing it, you'll get one you consider perfect.

Or hold on to it, and if it bothers you later on, send it I. And they'll blow it out for you.

Eh, sounds like more trouble than it's worth. I have about 14 months of warranty on it, so maybe I'll send it in if something worse happens.
