    First, running the battery down to 20% regularly can kill it quickly. (So can charging it to 100%. Try to keep it between 40% and 80%. Use Accu​Battery.)

    After a long bout of heavy usage, the battery may bounce back a few percent. That's why belodion asked you "Increasing by how much?" - and you didn't answer. Increasing from 20% to 25% after a while is normal. Increasing from 20% to 80% isn't.

    As a battery ages, it can't handle the power demands as well. Rukbat is correct that it's possible to see the percentage increase a bit after gaming and the battery has a chance to rest. As it wears out, this could get worse and you may also see other symptoms, such as shutting off at something above zero on the battery gauge. So if it's gaining 6-8 percent, then I'm leaning towards the battery simply about due for replacement.

    I've seen small increases in reported battery charge level, both in the percentage figure and at the same time as a corresponding upward incline on the battery usage graph, on various phones. I think it's fairly commonplace. That's why I asked you how much increase you were seeing.

    Don't worry about any mistakes. You are welcome here as a new member.

    ...I've just checked the graph on the Nexus 5 I'm using right now, and as you can see, it does show a slight upward incline at a certain point:
