    It depends on the game, screen brightness and what Android version your Nexus has.

    Those games are real battery drainers. But take time to compute. If your battery drains 8% for every 15 minutes of heavy gameplay, how long can you play before your battery becomes 12% from a full charge?



    Answer: 88% / 8% = 11, 11 x 15 min. = 165 min. /2 hrs 45 mins. That's already normal for a tablet and since you're playing graphics-intensive games.

    Yes. Those were really hard to believe although some games consume less battery

    i got a response from some one he said that..

    That's Wierd Because I Get 8-10 Hours Of Gaming W/ Airplane Mode On, Wi-Fi On, GPS Off, Bluetooth Off, Currents Un-Auto Sync, Etc...
