Should I try to get a new battery?
This could be one of three things depending on when you got your phone. If you've just bought it, knowing your carrier and software version helps.
Software conflicts from a system update
- Software conflicts from a system update, although this one usually doesn't let your phone lose just 3% overnight.
- Bad battery. Again, odd that you would be able to survive the night without power loss (unless the phone lied, lol).
- Google services have a hiccup causing a power drain and was only able to do it when you turned data back on.

Have you checked your battery page to see if anything looks out of place? Usually if something is draining more battery than your screen, something's wrong with that app.

If it ain't broke, use a sledge hammer.
