Sounds like a defective battery or a battery past its prime?
Is this a new phone?

The battery. Most laptops, cellphone will do that to a point. It's normal use. If yours is so hot that you cant hold it in your hand I would have it chekcked out. It maybe faulty.

Is it when your using it, say playing a game? If so it's normal it's the processors in the phone working. If it while it's just sitting there doing nothing that isn't normal.
Try installing this app & when it gets hot check the temp it shows. It should also alarm if it get dangerously hot

^ Paul - how do you know the OP has an Android handset when nothing was said? ;-) Android may have the highest market share now, but don't assume everyone uses it! :-D
