How much screen on time do you have? That's what really counts. Anything between 3-4 hours is good.

Im running stockmodrom and right now im at 50% with 14hrs and 1.5hrs screen on time.

Wow something's really messed up. Try clearing data and cache and force stopping the messaging app.
If that doesn't work then I guess a factory reset or flashing a new rom or kernel might.

Try greenify it will stop apps from waking up/running in the background, also you can freeze or uninstall stuff with titanium backup, and also monitor things with better battery stats app.


here is how greenify works, in case u never used it before.hope it helps.

Battery draining this fast while the phone isn't in use can only mean one thing: your phone is awake all the time. You had 1.5 hours of screen use but then, your phone was idle for the remaining time. I suggest you install BetterBatteryStats, it will show which process is preventing the phone from going into deep sleep (this is called a wakelock).
