Long story short, it's normal whether you like it or not.

You're asking such a compact unit to lose heat fast, and its all locked up tight? the way the camera works ifnot right get to gopro. ask them and you'll in time start to learn about yourcam the way it acts creates heat etc.....if it is not right return or replace her.
Also whenever you charge a battery always be near by and keep an eye, never leave unattended things charging

It was just a question, not a complaint.
And an opinion, memory cards are usually broken in any device, in this case could be by the heat during charging.

We all need to learn our camera. we get used to the warmness of charging, we also worry bout USB file transfer that the camera gets hot, as well recording. If the card gets damaged by the camera, you're the first one here I heard that happen to, so I wonder what you are doing differntly to make that happen. Maybe removing the card into a slot readereach time if this is something you are worried about?
I look into why your cards get damaged and getto gopro?

I've been using Gopro 5 session for two weeks now. Yes it is very hot when it is recording 1080 and even hotter when doing 4k recording. I don't know if it is normally hot, actually too hot to touch at the front frame around the glass, only I assume that it works very hard to process images, and it dissipates heat through the frame. I don't mind as long as it is functioning as expected, battery time a little too short though. I suggest to drop it into water to cool it down, it is waterproof right? I tried it once now, fine; the developers probably had it in mind that the heat can be dissipated to water.
