iPhone 4s over heating and draining battery

I dropped my phone from my bed and when I went move the bed one of the legs from bed accidently landed on the back of the iPhone near the camera it didn't break it or even scratch the the back of my iPhone. Later on in the day I realized my camera wasn't working front or rear and my phone was over heating. I noticed that the battery wasn't over heating the heat was coming from the mother board it gets so hot that sometimes I get a message saying I can't use the iPhone cause its to hot and also my phone would take for ever to fully charge and it dies super quick if used it for 30 min straight it will die at 5%. Can anyone help me?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have the same issue, but my iphone 4s was water damaged.

The overheating motherboard is probably a hardware malfunction. In your case it's most definitely (in my case it is too, though you have physical damage as well)

I would suggest taking it to the shop, or if you fix stuff yourself you should remove back cover, and see if there is a physical damage to the outside of the motherboard where it was hit. If it is even slightly bent, surely you cracked something in there, a "fix it yourself" would be much too difficult for someone that doesn't know how to fix micro-electronics. Find someone who can fix it for a fair price.

If you do not see any physical damage to the motherboard, there still might be damage that your don't see. Looking under the hood will just make it clearer for you.

Fixing components on Iphone motherboards will require hardcore soldering.
