Question Phone gets hot

Does anyone have any issues where the phone gets hot after using it for a little bit? Maybe its me, but I will text for about 20mins on and off and it'll get hot. I was using gravitybox (just that) and the phone got hot. Just curious if Im the only one or if its normal since its metal and all.

Xposed has a tendency to cause cpu load and heating ... mine (without xposed) works only upto warm even with games

I have a M8 from yesterday and also mine get quite warm even if I didn't install xposed yet.
btw i think it's normal, consider that it's made of metal.

Have xposed, and gravitybox installed. Temperatures remain cool, to warm. Nothing unbearable and still much cooler than any phone I have previously owned.

M8, nuff said.
My philosophy is that if your "contribution" to the community has a giant DONATE button in the center of the page? It isn't worth the download.
