    I recently changed the front screen on my iPhone 5 and i guess the person did something wrong - right after my camera (both front and back) stopped working, phone gets super hot and battery dies in 1,5 hour! Is there any way to fix it? HEEEEELP

    You just told us the cause.
    So go back to the shop where you did the screen change.

    I did, the guy said he doesn't know what happened; and that the indicator inside the phone turned red-which means there was water damage… I know 100% that my phone wasn't near water after i left the store. The worst case - he just ruined my phone, but is there a way to fix it somehow?

    First of all, do not go to the apple store!
    Maybe go to a different iPhone repair place?
    Does the repair place give any kind of warranty after the repair?

    No, no warranty…
    I can try another place, just concerned that they will make it worse

    This is a hard lesson to learn, and I feel for you, but dude... you probably got ripped off.

    There's a good chance some parts in your phone were swapped out and defective parts were put in their place. The guy likely just scammed you.

    This is why it's important not to trust those third party repair places. Even the ones that don't outright scam you will often use inferior non-Apple parts when doing repairs. You end up paying for in it in the end. :(
