    is there no way to have a little battery % meter displayed next to the battery icon in the notification bar? It was super easy to find on my M8, but I'm just not seeing the option on here.

    AOSP didn't have this built in. Google didn't add it to the Nexus. So Motorola didn't add it into their build either. You'll have to use a third-party app for that.

    I typically use GSam battery monitor since it provides a dual purpose of actual analytics.

    +1 for Gsam. Icon and analytics at the same time.

    A different alternative is to use the battery plugin with the Dash clock widget it works well for me.

    This little gem is what saved me from risking my warranty by unlocking my bootloader, rooting, and installing xposed w/gravitybox!

    It worked for me.
    But after use of this app my mobile screen was not going down after inactivity time.
    I just uninstalled the app and rebooted the device. Now it is working ok

    Once 6.0 hits you can just do it through the system UI tuner. Have it enabled on the nexus 5 and 9.

    Open the quick settings and long press on the settings icon top right for about 5 seconds.

    thanks - Brilliantly simple solution.
    This was driving me crazy - this is such a simple requirement, why isn't it there by default?

    It's still tough to read in the icon but I use GSam at times to see it better.
    I wish Motorola offered better widgets, or Google, the stock clock icon with battery and weather would be perfect.

    Not to hijack the thread, but do any of the third party battery apps you guys use allow you to get a "tone" when the charger is plugged / unplugged.
    Amazing to me that the charging tone, though set on the pure, will not work...

    I was able to enable the battery percentage inside the battery and it is very small but even worse it is not accurate once the screen is unlocked it displays 100.
