    Starting a month and half ago my LG Nexus 5 would get hot near the camera (Where the CPU is) and drain the battery unusually fast, even without an active app opened, now I can not keep it on outside because of the drain and even if it stays connected to a charger, it slowly builds a charge because of the drain.

    I recently changed the battery and the problem continues to persist.

    This started happening around when I went over all the settings in the phone and apps, I fear I might of turned on something that is causing it in the background but I can not figure out the exact problem.

    Please help.

    Hardware failure, perhaps?

    Welcome to Android Central! Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:


    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    You might have to install a 3rd party battery monitor, like GSam Battery Monitor, to get the Cell Signal Strength graph.

    Outlook looks like it's using too much battery, and might be what's keeping the phone awake constantly. Did you change a sync setting there?

    As a test, try uninstalling Outlook temporarily and see if the battery life improves dramatically.

    I'll try that and let you know how it goes.

    I am more concern about the CPU constantly warm and hot, I changed a bunch of settings recently so I do not know whats causing it.

    Before when I checked battery, outlook wasn't even on top of the list.

    Hey

    I hope I am not jumping the gun, but its been almost 4 hours since I uninstall outlook and I saw the effects immediately.

    My phone is no longer over-heating and draining the battery, its back to normal

    I really didn't think it was an app, especially since I used outlook before, but I did change settings in all apps recently and maybe something in there triggered the stress.

    I am planning on reinstalling and being careful what causes it.

    Thank you so much, you are a life saver!

    Great! Now that I think about it more, another approach would've been to go to Settings>Apps, select Outlook, and Clear Cache/Clear Data. Perhaps some bit of bad data was causing the app to work overtime for some reason -- e.g., some bit of data that couldn't be synced properly, leading the app to constantly try to sync.

    KK, I am going to reinstall and take it setting by setting to avoid what happened.
