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.

Check the frequencies of the cpu, sometimes the minimum value gets stuck to a higher than needed frequency.
You can do so by using Kernel Auditor (root) or CPU-Z. Obviously if they're higher you'll need to set them lower, 300 MHz is the normal minimum freq. If that is not the case then install Gsam Battery Monitor and enable extra stats, you should be able to figure something out with that one app.
