    In general, yes. Avoid situations where the phone seems to be at its hottest (ex. charging while voice calling / extended gps or data usage). I would assume most phones will auto shut-off or provide a warning. Even my 4S provided a temperature warning once when I left it on the dash in the sun while it was charging and streaming music

    My factory reset fixed it, now I just have to fix battery life

    He shouldn't. If you're using a phone.. Active data.. Charging.. It's going to heat up. My Note 3 does it.. My previous M7 did it.. All my phones. Charging heats it up.. Put that with usage and it heats up easily. .

    My phone gets to 100 occasionally, but that's when there's a runaway app that's causing the CPU to drain battery.

    Good time to catch this topic. My phone gets pretty warm when I use it. Gsam battery has the temperature at 107f

    It doesn't get uncomfortable but my otterbox case gets warm to where I start to smell the case. It's not a burning smell or anything like that but I'm noticing it.

    I factory reset and it fixed it. Try that.

    My uncle got an M8 today. I sent him a couple "things to watch for" including this one. I am surprised tho, metal should conduct heat away pretty effectively. My Flex has a 1.8A adapter and I played Minecraft for a couple hours charging from 2% without any warming. My tablet with 2.0A adapter does get warm along the bottom inch of case and the battery heats up a little.

    Those heavy foam cases just about strangle your heat dissipation tho, throttling is guaranteed with sustained usage.
