You might have some background running apps or low data reception causing your phone to work harder. It could also be a faulty battery. Try removing your battery and test again. If the issue persist, you could try a factory reset under Settings or bring it to any store. They can send it out for repair or exchange your battery if you are under the 1 year manufacturer warranty

What happens if you reboot the phone?

What happens if you put the phone in airplane mode while sleeping?
