    I noticed that when I touch the metal frame when the phone is charging,
    there is some sort of electric vibe, is this normal?

    It could indicate one of several possible problems; in any event, I would be concerned.

    Does it happen when you use an entirely different outlet (one that is on another circuit)?

    Is this the stock charger, or a third party charger?

    Is the cable - particularly the end which plugs into the phone - in good condition?

    Where did you buy the phone? If from your carrier, I would take it in and demand a replacement.

    Just unboxed it 2 days ago.
    it's the stock turbo charger.
    got it from amazon.

    I am using this (US pure version) in a country where the voltage runs at 220,
    can this be the issue? on the turbo adapter it says 110-240, so it should not be a problem

    Just noticed that this is only prevalent when the phone is resting on something,
    when I pick it up (while charging) the entire electric sensation stops.
    Can anyone check it this is the same by them?

    While not specific to this phone (which I'm impatiently waiting on), I've had bad cables cause this (not exactly sure how/why). Might try swapping out the cable?
