    So, when I work I keep my phone on airplane mode. Usually, from when I clock in, my battery is down to 95%-98% in 5-6 hours when I go to lunch. That's very consistent.

    Today, after 3 hours it was down to 79%! Almost zero use and when I checked "GSAM Battery" app to see what was draining it, about 50% of the use was "kept awake", and that was for the whole time too.

    Besides doing a factory reset (I'm not opposed to that), ideas?!?

    It's just today. Give it time to show consistency. You keep it on airplane so that rules out signal and data issues. Had you updated any apps before you went in today?

    I know this is obvious, but have you tried a power cycle and a battery pull. If you have, ignore this. If you haven't, it can't hurt.
