    What was the room temperature? If the phone is enclosed in a case when charging then will get hotter, as the heat will be trapped inside.

    AND WHAT IS THE ROOM TEMPERATURE? If the room is hot then of course a charging iPhone will be even hotter.

    All devices get "warm" when charging, but if it is getting HOT to where it is bothersome to touch, then I would call Apple and see what the deal is.

    Yeah, that is not normal. You should call Apple. Although again, if the room was hot then that has something to do with it. Mine barely even gets warm, but it sits on a dock and has space to air out.

    Sometimes I have to plug my iPhone into an inverter in my truck because it's dead and it will get really hot then. Even the metal part of the phone shocks my face! haha But when it's plugged in at home, it just gets a little warm. If I feel it getting warm I just take it out of the case.

    No offense, but hard-core apple fan-boys are the most paranoid people ever. Electrons go really really fast when batteries charge. Hence; lots of heat. Don't worry. It's normal.

    OP, can you give an exact reading of how hot the iPhone gets when you charge it.
