Hi i got an iphone 4 , cleaned the phone after water damage and replaced battery. but it gets hot now and battery drains 50% + in 4 hours even when completely off. can someone tell me what to look at. or what the problem could be. oh and the phone charges but very slowly and if its completely drained it wont go past the apple logo loop.

The problem is likely to be a short somewhere in the circuitry, likely caused by corrosion as a result of the water damage.
