Having a coloured overlay in the manual camera settings screen makes it damn near impossible to choose the correct white balance without resorting to trial and error.

If there were at least a small "window" of the actual camera view, that might be enough to serve as a WYSIWYG for white balance.

Actually not always blue, depends on your ambience. But yes, you are absolutely right.

It could be possibile to implement a custom WB setting the way it's usually found on "real" cameras: selecting this option, you're presented with a standard camera screen with a rectangle centred in it. If you then fill this rectangle with a white or gray surface and shoot, you automatically set WB.

Hi, you are absolutely right, a transparent overlay is needed for the options, thanks!
