normal idle for skyactiv engines

so i got myself a 2014 Mazda 3 with the 2.0L skyactiv. i am used to driving cars where the idle is 700-800, so when i got the Mazda and noticed that it idles at around 550-600 when warm and 700-950 when cold i thought that maybe the car wasn't idling right when warm. to me it seems rough because the car shakes but just a barley. i plugged in a code scanner to see if any misfire codes where coming up but im all clear. i was gonna pull the plugs but i thought i could give this a shot and see if it is normal for the new skyactiv engine since Mazda claims its a new technology for their engines. ill probably end up pulling the plugs but if they seem clean then ill hit up my Mazda dealer and see what the techs say. knowing the stealerships they are probably going to tell me i need a new engine or something.
