    I haven't noticed it except for when I am charging which is normal. It might also depend on what your doing. I know mine will get a little hot if I'm using GPS.

    What exactly are you doing at the time for it to get hot?

    What every single red blooded male does. Porn. :)

    Seriously, just playing with it. Learning iOS 7, etc.

    Slightly warm-gate?

    But seriously, it's more than normal; it's expected. The energy stored in the battery is converted into light energy (screen/camera flash) and heat energy.

    You said porn once, you didn't have to say it twice! LOL

    But yes, it's normal for it to get a bit warm now and then. If it gets too hot, there's a warning system, so you'll know if there's a problem and the temp is going too high.

    It won't get warm with normal use, that is to say, when you're done tweaking it and playing with every new feature like a Christmas morning toy.

    Mine got warm for a couple of hours the first day. Not since.
