    Is it normal for the phone, specifically the metal edges and back to get quite warm when charging AND using the phone at the same time?

    I'm running nobex in the background and I believe it streams the program over WiFi.

    The whole phone gets quite warm. As stated the metal frame is noticably warm and the back as well

    Thoughts?

    Yes. It's normal. You don't get any food cold when you cook them, right?

    But using your phone for calls while charging isn't a good idea.

    I believe the tech reason is that the device draws more amps while in use than the charger provides, hence it gets hot. I learned this on my Q10 when I used it as a wifi Hotspot while on the charger, it too got hot real fast!

    Heat is never a good thing but what are the drawbacks if any?

    These things are designed to act as hotshots no?

    It also makes sense that the user plug it in to a charger while using the hotpot to ensure the battery is not flat when done.

    But as I stated above, the metal frame thus the sides exposed gets real hot.

    This heat is likely what is causing the screen tape/glue from failing and warping the screens off the units.
