Mine does. I'm using the same charger that came with it. Never happened with my nexus 5. Anybody?

No mine doesn't, it gets warm but then again it's charging. Maybe try a different charger? The one that out comes with is 1.8A which isn't that high, but I guess it could be for usb 2.0. My nexus 7 has a 1.2A charger which is a lot lower and my note had a 2.0A charger. I would try the other one and confirm it's a lower amperage and see if that helps.

This is normal. Because it is inductive charging.

This is OK totally to get warm when charging and also it gets even warmer if you are using it. Try testing laptop charger... Drain battery totally and then plug charger to wall outlet. Wait few minutes and touch the charger. Then turn on you laptop use it a little and then again touch charger,even hotter...

Any or every device gets warm while charging. Dont worry this normal unless your phone gets so hot that you can't even touch it.

What isn't normal is I got a warning popup on mine today saying something to the effect of 'Charging is being suspended due to high temperature'.

WTF! It was in my car, plugged in to the same charger I have used for months. I'm in the UK! Temperature was certainly no higher than 25 Celsius. device was warm, but not so warm I couldn't touch it!

If you get a warning then check inside USB port. I had this behavior on GS2 where the tab inside port was touching the inside wall. I used a micro screw driver and slightly lifted it up so its not making contact with the metal housing. Be very careful as you have been warned. If you break the tab means your phone is done. So proceed at your own risk.
