    I got some updates yesterday, and then 3 hours later my battery was almost dying, and my phone was hot for quite some time. It's all back to normal today though.

    Did anyone else experience this?

    Not quite sure if it was the same thing...

    Got whatsapp, metro tube update, fully charged, sleep for 8 hours while aeroplane mode on, then battery dropped to 76%.

    Before that battery only drop 2% over the night

    So I uninstalled whatsapp, restarted, now it seems to be normal again

    Why yes, I did have an unexplained drain yesterday. I was not even using the phone and had to plug it in twice. I restarted it later in the evening and plugged it in overnight. Working perfectly again today. Every once in a while I get an inexplicable drain and if I restart the phone it seems to fix it, at least for me it fixes it. And yes, I also had some updates yesterday.

    Whatsapp update maybe? I also experienced it.

    Or.... the big outage Whatsapp had (https://twitter.com/wa_status) in combination with the update maybe.

    Wrote a long thing about my strange battery drain today and then I realized that the charger had been plugged into the computer that was turned off last night, and not plugged into the wall socket. So I never did charge ot during the night after all. Sorry. I know this information doesn't help anyone else.
