This happened to me yesterday. I thought my charger was plugged in and I was using my phone heavily.

Ended up getting 5H's 48M's SOT over 6 hours starting from about 80%.

I also agree that the Nexus 5 has good battery life. Especially compared to my past devices.

I generally always charge my Nexus when it gets to about 50% and never let it charge all night. I tend to use about 25% a day battery charge.

I guess something is wrong with your battery then , cause I do some gaming at least 30 mins a day and my battery still goes for 14-15 hrs
