So we have two apps in battery drain... First is a game Royal Revolt 2 that is a tower defense 3D game that run 42minutes (not in a row) and Android system that also run for 40minutes...so both of them drain about 10% of battery... How this is possible I mean the Android system drain the same amount of battery as a 3D game?

Do you still get the Android system drain if you don't play the game?

I had a similar problem but I seemed to have fixed it. I am currently on Omni Rom latest nightly, installed Franco Kernel, and installed Greenify to hibernate apps that cause wake locks and run in the background continuously. Since I have done these 2 things my battery life has been much much better. Before I would be lucky to make it 8-9 hours on a single charge. Now im averaging 14+ hours. Still not amazing but better. Give these two things a try.

I have been using My phone all day so far mainly to listen to music

Android System is only 7%

Compared to the other apps I have been using all day I don't think 7% is bad so 10% may be normal. However this is over a 7 hour period.
