Question [Q] do all custom roms heat up the phone and drains battery even on moderate use?

i tried out a few custom roms: neat rom, cm11, omni.... and they all share they same issue i've been trying to solve. BATTERY PROBLEM!
the thing i love about the 4.4 custom roms is how fast they move.... i try flashing kernels, underclocking with boeffla an the things still cant last a full day, an heat up massively on moderate use: music, whatsapp, sms,web browsing...
if anyone else has this problem and finds a solution to it please let me know. am kinda new hear so is there something am not doing rite?

It might be a hardware issue then. Try flashing stock, if still happens means hardware issue. If not, most probably the custom roms.

When I first got my phone on stock S3 firmware, it lasted 5-6 hrs with minor use. If you want to make the custom roms last longer on KitKat, stay away from Archi, undervolt and underclock the cpu. If you want it to last an insane amount of time, enable flight mode. ;DD
There's just so much love on this forum, it makes me want to cry.

5-6 hours with minor use is EXTREMELY low.
