I am usually on Video Chats with my friend on Skype like for 2 - 3 hours

during the chat, I begin to notice the phone gets REALLY hot

1) Is that normal?

2) Was the phone designed to operate at such a high temperature?

3) shall I take it back? it's a brand new 64 GB Black iPhone 5

PS: this is my first iPhone I never had one before and thus don't know how they should or not be

1. Yes. It is.
2. It will be fine, the iPhone has a temp sensor and will turn off if it gets too hot.
3. No, Skype uses significant resources and battery. You will see a huge drain and the heat you mentioned.
