    I have noticed when I use my ipod touch 4g it gets warm at the top where the camera I was wondering if it might be faulty and should I get it replaced or is it normal?

    I've seen other iPod touches do that, I assume it's normal. As long as you can still hold it, you should be ok.

    Don't worry about it, I have an iPod Touch 4G and it also heats when I'm using it for a long period of time.

    It's normal. The CPU is located next to the camera.
    If you use it for either a long time, or an intensive game or anything it WILL heat up.
    Completely normal.

    If it gets too hot, there is a risk that the battery might explode...

    Like every one else said, its totally normal but if it gets to the point where you can't hold it try 1 of 3 things:
    1.turn it off and wait a while
    2.get a case
    3.get a new ipod
