if you play games, it's normal that the phone, depending on the kind of game you play, needs a lot of power. So the battery gets uncharged quickly and gets warm and also the electronics on the logic board is getting warm.

Nearly the same when doing a call. I don't know where you live, but when the connection to the net is very low, or the antenna is covered, the phone will use more power to maintain a stable line. The rest is the same as above.

Is it getting warm, that's normal, or is it getting hot(like more than 40°C)?

Well.... I have a case on and i can feel the heat through the silicone case and the case's rubber gets a bit mouldy. P.S the phone works perfectly!
