    Yes it is normal. It's because the processor (the brain) of the device is doing a lot of work, and it get's hot. It's just like a human body - when you exercise, you get hot and sweaty(of course the biophysics are different with respect to respiration, glucosidation and friction).

    But note, when I say it's normal, I mean it should be so hot that you can't touch it. If that is the case, then there is a problem.

    Also, if you are charging and using the device at the same time, and the device starts to get significantly hot, stop using the device, wait until it's fully charged (optional), and then disconnect the device and let it cool before you resume use.

    Use of the device in extreme temperatures (both hot and cold) can damage the lithium ion battery.
