At my school, there are many places that have no service and my phone starts heating up my leg.
also, normal use in a service region may drain 2 percent per hour, no service brings me down to maybe 5-6 percent per hour.
Today i didn't even look at my phone and in 7 hours, I was down from 100 to 66 percent battery.
Most of the building where I work has no service. Needless to say the battery always drains more than usual in there with whatever rom I am using or phone for that matter. The constant searching for signal does really does suck down the battery. As far as heating up, I am on third shift dripping sweat at work , if the phone heated up I wouldn't notice lol.
What does seem to drain the battery is video. I use MX Player and videos I play switch to S/W decoding instead of Hardware. I think this is a rom issue. I believe MX Player would play almost anything using Hardware before. Anyway 15 minutes of video drains my battery like 10 percent.
