Every once in a while my finger will catch the slight bevel along the edge and there will be just a little bit of give... to make it seem like the whole back casing could easily be popped off. Is it supposed to pop on/off to access the innards of the 3DS, or is this just a result of poor manufacturing?
"And you see where that can lead you, into what mistakes and absurdities, when you are dealing with a man like Arsene Lupin."
I just noticed that with my 3DS XL too last week and I thought I broke it when I dropped it. But not really because my brother's 3DS XL pops off a bit on the back by the stylus too.

the back plate is only held on by 2 screws and 2 clips on opposing ends, so this tends to let the plate 'give' mainly on the right side. i suppose its less poor manufacturing, but more 'stupid manufacturing.'

The entire back can indeed come off to access the battery. As mentioned, it only has a couple points of support holding it on there, so the sides can be loosened easily.

The back plate is basically a large battery cover.
