    Depends on what you are playing and what else is running at the same time. But it can happen. similar to if I plug in while using Google maps it just slows down the battery drain. Have had the same thing happen on other devices.

    Maybe you need a new cable.

    It depends on what you're using to charge it, too. The USB port on a PC won't supply the same current as many dedicated chargers.

    Let the device fully charge then go to almost 0 and post a screen shot of the battery usage screen. It really depends on what you are using the device for and if the services are battery intensive, such as games.
