Here's the screen when using Manual mode, it allows users to select both the shutter speed and aperture value, and displays exposure compensation to inform you if you are about to take a under or over-exposed picture (in this case, 0EV). The live image is displayed with the degree of under or over exposure that would result from current settings. Also shown in this image are the additional display options including the histogram.
