When you replace the home button you can't retain touch ID.

The home button that came with the phone is linked to the board and only apple can program the home buttons to work with touch ID.

Anyway that's pretty much it.

If you have a faulty home button or no home button installed it will cause the phone to drain faster.

I have confirmed this by using a DC bench power supply. With the home button installed it pulled 0.4A on average.

Without the home button it would pull 0.6A on average, consider that 20% more.

Probably some component shorting on the board, usually tristar (charging chip) can cause rapid battery drain.

Basically a board level repair.
