I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing the device heating up. Not the normal warmth from using I'm talking battery temp at 111 degrees. When not doing anything on it? Wondering if I should get a new one since I'm in the first 14 still? Thoughts. Thanks.

Check your batter stats. You could have an app that is discharging your battery heavily even though you think it's off. But if everything looks normal, replace your phone immediately. If a Li-ion battery gets uncomfortably hot, it's a sign you've got a faulty one and you shouldn't mess around with it. At best it can fry your internal hardware; at worst it can fry you.
Are you experiencing inconsistent and/or poor battery life?

Heavy use while charging could heat up the processor, its heat would be tranfered to the battery and would increase the battery's temperature. Actual phones' CPUs have allowed temperatures up to 90C (194F).
The Li-Ion battery's allowed temperature is for discharging up to 60C (140F) and for charging up to 45C (113F).
But note, if the battery remains within its allowed range that means it doesn't represent any danger. But high temperatures will decrease the battery's life cycle span.
