I assume this smudged frosting is overspill from whatever glue you're using. I guess when you were wiping off the excess you thought you'd got all of the glue, and it was only when it dried white that you saw it. Shouldn't be visible like that on a non-transparent case of course, although it would still show in the clear oval behind the logo. But I think you said production lids would have the logo glued in by the plastic firm, so it remains to see how good a job of it they do (and if they use a glue that dries clear).

Yeah, though I don't plan to use glue in the end, it's just for the prototypes.
For the final units, we need the logo plate to be self-adhesive with 3M glue. Those are a lot stronger, are easier to handle (pull off the foil and simply put it in) and they can be easily removed with heat :)
Same for the magnets.

And a quick update:
They are working on improving the shoulder buttons. An easy fix for an improvement would be to add a spring to the lower buttons, which can be seen in a first test here:

Honestly, I'm not sure where the spring is hidden - but it seems to work fine :D
