Android Marshmallow's nifty System UI Tuner: here's everything you can modify within the hidden menu

Okay, that's a fictitious dictionary entry that we came up with in a moment of mental genius, but it perfectly depicts the reason why we and a large part of the smartphone users around the globe are loving Android. Recently, we welcomed Marshmallow to the family of sweet versions of the OS, and frankly said, we have little to no gripes with it - it's stable, with a host of interesting features aboard, and most importantly, it feels mature, of sorts.
Well, as we already told you, there's a nifty hidden menu in Marshmallow that allows you to change or access features previously unavailable to Android enthusiasts (on a non-rooted, stock Android phone, of course). It's called System UI Tuner and is a hidden feature, of sorts - we already made a guide on how to enable it and access one of its more important features, but now we will present to you the multitude of tweaks System UI Tuner provides.
Makes you wonder why I they couldn't get this done with lollipop.

I was just wondering how long it would take for you to post a Lollipop troll. Not long.

The battery indicator exists since Kit Kat. You just needed to run an ADB command (no root required).

So far quite a few of these things are found in Touchwiz and Sense which is why I'm all for custom skins over plain android. As for the battery percentages I find it's a bit hard to glance at and instead would use GSAM.
