Usually i charge my phone when i get home and unplug it when its at 100 before i go to bed. When i wake up its at about 90-100 battery life. Today it was completely dead and a couple days before. Have no idea what caused it but has anyone had that happen?

I had a similar issue. I charge at 100% before bed. Often wake up at 99 or 100%. The other day it was just above 30%. The problem was Boat Browser, which I left windows active/open.

Use an app like 'better battery stats', it will show you what's eating up your battery.

Does it die during the day as well?

I'm just curious, why would you unplug it at night before you go to bed? Wouldn't you want a fully charged phone for the next day?

Because lg has amazing idle time I usaly wake up and there would be a 3-6% drain from 100%

My phone stays at 100% for hours of use,so my guess is you are losing out on a few more hours of battery life during the day.
