Is this normal battery operation?

Answering my own question: I think my issue is inadvertent key presses. I have the Proporta aluminum-lined flip cover, but I think if I carry it in my pants pocket, it presses the 5-way key and drains the battery. I carried it carefully over the weekend, and over 3 days it was still at 98% battery.

I need a cover that doesn't do this.
