Default Phone died when really cold

Found an odd issue. The phone just completely died on me today twice when I walked to and from work. It was like there was no power whatsoever. Couldn't turn it on. Now this never happened before and I'm wondering if it was because it was really cold today or something. (-48C at one point) Once I got indoors and the phone warmed up for about 5 minutes it powered on no problem. Once it powered on this afternoon I found the battery had dropped about 25% from when it was on, and it just stayed at that percentage for about two hours with an hour screen time.

This is first time this happened although it's never been this cold before. The CPU wasn't registering a temperature and the battery wasn't either while I was walking.

Back when I had a Galaxy nexus this never happened. Anyone else ever come across this?

Do a lot if winter walking in Scotland and cold affected both my GPS and phone on some occasions resulting in it not operating ,as the battery temp drops it can and does struggle and the temp was no where near as low as -48 c "that's coooold"

Calgary, Canada. It's warmed up today though. Only -36. I'll see of it happens again. But good to know!

Happens to me all the time when I'm outside.. Battery gets destroyed by the cold.. One time I was just looking at the battery and it dropped from around 50% to around 10% in less than 30 minutes with little use.
