Check the battery health, if it is at 80 percent it is good but if it is below 80 percent then you need to change your battery because the battery is the main reason if your HTC One M8 is overheating.
(There’s also a DIY process of checking your battery’s health, you can rotate the battery on a flat surface and if it rotates smoothly then your battery is below average and if not then it had good health)
Overheating is also caused when the phone is being overcharged on the daily basis. Because overcharging the battery destroys it cells after which it cannot supply properly to the CPU and gets heated up.
Don’t use fake USB cables as they are faulty and do not charge well and even sometimes they destroy the battery life of the phone. HTC One M8 can start to overheat when the cable is not charging properly because the fake cables are of low quality and do not handle the heat produced from electrical outputs.

Don’t use your smartphone under direct sunlight as it is dangerous and becomes the reason of overheating. Heat from sunlight when directly impacts on the display of the smartphone it can damage the LCD and also as the HTC ONE M8 is made of aluminum, the aluminum will start to heat up.
Don’t use your HTC One M8 while charging as it is also one of the main reasons the smart phone’s these days start to heat up because when it is charging the battery it should be placed on a table and not being used. When we use it, it starts to heat up after some time because the battery is charging as well as draining, the two of the procedures do not combine well.
