Question my s4 gets super hot!

My s4 gets really hot when I charge it. Does this happen to every phone or just mines? Is this harmful for my phone? It gets even hotter when I use it while its on charge.

How hot?
Your sensor shows the temperature of the phone's battery. Because it's the phone's most sensitive component.

The Li-Ion battery's temperature operating range is:
for discharging -20C (-4F) to +60C (+140F).
for charging 0C (+32F) to +45C (+113F).

Google Translate is to blame for my grammar

mine does also, ive learned to shut it off for 10 min and back on. or until its cool...

happens sometimes to me tho, not all the time.

when it happens, when i leave the house and im driving about,
at first i thought it was wifi searching, so ive set wifi to not search for wifi.
sometimes if the screen is getting hit by the sun.
sometimes a weak 4g signal.
sometimes browsing on 4g signal.

in all my cases, i shut it off wait for it to cool and power back on.
if i dont shut it off and wait for it to cool, my battery dies quickly..
10min wait to cool is not a deal breaker for me.
