    Do you have a good signal at your location? If your carrier is having a problem with the tower nearest you, or has changed towers, your phone may be having to operate at a higher power level than previously. That will quickly drain a battery.

    My first thought was that your battery was old and had lost capacity, but you ruled that out with a new battery.

    When you downgraded back to OS5, did you reload your 3rd party apps from a backup, or reinstall them? If you reinstalled them, make sure you didn't inadvertently select an option that causes the app to access the internet more frequently than it did before. Frequent data access will exacerbate the battery problems caused by weak signals.
