    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.
