    I have an HTC One M8 and love it ! <3
    But...it`s always a "but" ...the phone gets very hot sometimes that I have to place it on a low temperature. How can I be sure that the phone runs cool?
    :-s

    Xposed has a tendency to cause cpu load and heating . Mine (without xposed) works only up to warm even with games and other things

    The metal casing of the HTC ONE device doesn't help either, especially if you've got the phone in a cover. While I've never heard of a device being damaged or shutting down due to heat, I can see why some people are a little anxious that it's starting to get a warm to hold.

    I think there's even a topic posted on the HTC website regarding this, basically saying it's nothing to worry about. And in my opinion I dont think it is anything to worry about, I've watched movies, downloaded and listened to music and played games on mine even while it's been charging and it has got warm, I'd go as far as to even say hot but it's never had any impact on the actual performance of the device.

    I would agree with Pwarbi that it's probably due to the metal case. Try not to charge it often I guess or have it checked to be sure that you get your money's worth.

    While not charging it as often would help, as most smartphone users know, unfortunately this isn't an option sometimes as battery life is a massive issue on these devices.

    Although a smartphone will generate more heat while charging, the frequency of charging isn't going to impact the temperature while the device isn't plugged in. A metal casing doesn't affect heat to a severe degree because all phones will heat up to a similar temperature, especially those running a more powerful processor. Devices heat up as more resources are used, and screen brightness can affect the heat generation to some degree. It's better to kill apps, run a moderate brightness, and even consider underclocking the processor slightly for less heat.

    While I agree that most phones generate the same amount of heat, the material the casing is made of will definitely impact on how hit the phone is to touch. Holding a metal phone, you'll be able to feel more heat than if it's made of another material, that's what I was meaning.

    Well phones tend to get hot when under a lot of strain. But I wouldn't really worry about it. Just don't play cpu-intensive games for more than an hour at a time and I think you should be fine. My Galaxy S2 is always getting quite warm from even surfing the web, actually it has reached quite high temperatures, but it's worked just fine. Don't worry about it, the phone can take it, and if you don't use it like you want to, what's the point in buying it in the first place :D

    A lot of people tend to get worried that their phone is getting too hot but a lot of the time it is just down to what that person is doing with it.

    If your playing a console for a few hours that tends to get warm aswell, your phone is just the same.

    Mine can get warm, but it doesn't get 'hot'. I've had ti for a year now and haven't had any problems even when it's gotten really warm, no problems with overheating or anything like that. :) I wouldn't be too worried. Also, check your processes and see what you got running that may be working the CPU too hard which can cause the phone to get warmer.

    It's a fact if life that phones get warm. It doesn't help of course that they're always on, so to speak. Even if it's in your pocket and your not actually using it, the software on the device is still working.

    Try not to overcharge it. But if I were you, I'd really just have it checked than wait for the battery to explode.

    That's a common problem with smartphones because of their RAM capacity. I also believe because there isn't enough cooling systems so I would say to just empty software issues and see if it's alright, if not, it's basically a hardware problem or design.

    I think your battery may be faulty. You probably solved your problem until now but if you're still having issues I suggest you take it to someone specialised to get it checked.
    You're going to damage your internals if you don't solve the problems.

    Yeah, but not always though, he may want to check software first or RAM usage.

    It's hard to pinpoint why it's getting 'very hot' and unless we ourselves have it in our hands, we can't determine what exactly is 'very hot' what you may think is 'very hot' may not be 'very hot' at all or at all dangerous for that matter. :) As someone above said, I would check RAM usage, what processes ar running, etc and see if you can kill off some and see if that cools down the phone any. Also what carrier is your M8 on? See if any of the pre-installed bloatware is running in the background using up any of the resources at all times.
