It's not strange. It is a function of excessively high charging rate (too much current too fast). This is a design issue. They tried to make it charge at a reasonable rate. The 3G phones draw a huge amount of power andthe battery is pushed to the max. What they need is a higher capacity battery and a higher capacity charger.

While the temperature is warm to the touch, it is not excessive or at a level that causes me concern (that's my take ... it may not be yours). 73
