Long story short - I plugged my phone to charge in the evening, wake up in the morning to find that the phone is VERY hot(area around the camera on the back) and switched off, and won't turn on. After doing a battery pull the phone switched on, the battery was full and the temperature was at 46C. It happened to me on the Monday night but I thought it is just something silly, but it happened to me today again. I was not using any hardware intensive application before I went to bed, just writing emails with my GF.
Have you modded the phone since you got it? Like rooting or installing any mods.
How many apps have you installed on it? Any that may keep running in the background?
If it does it again then I would advise going into Settings, Backup & Reset and restore the phone to factory settings. Then put the phone back on charge for about 8 hours and sede if the temperature goes up again. As mentioned it may just be an app thats making the phone go hot but if it goes hot after a factory reset then you will need to send it back for replacement.
