Either you have a parasitic drain on the battery or you need to calibrate your battery settings. Have you done a factory reset? Are you rooted (if you don't know then you're probably not).

Does your device get hot while you are charging it? It could be sign of problem with battery or/and charger connection. ( It happened to my son's S2x recently) You can bring your phone to Koodo kiosk and check it out. They will send it for repair if it necessary(or if you want). Do you still have a warranty?.

Great. Try what Chad suggested first ( adjust your battery setting) and if you still have a problem, you can bring it in for repair. Just a note : Once they send it for repair and if they found "out of warranty damages(physical and/or water)", you can choose to pay and continue or not repair it.
