Default [Q] phone got SUPER hot?

So this morning when my alarms went off, me being myself slept thought them and they kept on going as usual.
The only unusual thing about it was my phone got ULTRA hot. The whole front of it, battery and the back where the processor is.
It got so hot I panicked and pulled the battery and let it cool.

What could cause this? There was no major battery drain for the alarms going off for an hour.

Its still working as normal. Just freaked me out a bit.

Your alarm was going off for an hour? Dang. Hopefully you werent late for anything. lol

The battery gets hot when its constantly doing something and the screen is on. Its normal. I mean, it COULD potentially ruin your phone over time. But electronics get hot. Theres not much you can do about it. I sometimes download files that take 3 to 5 minutes and while its doing that, my phone heats up how you described yours.

Phone always gets really hot when processor is being heavily used especially gaming.

Unless you see some sort of lag while it's hot I wouldn't really worry too much.

I also thought it was a problem, but when you know to hold in your hand without burning it's alright
