    It's quite normal with metal bodied laptops and mobiles.

    The answer lies in improper grounding in the socket that you connect your mobile charger to.

    Observe that you wont find this strange buzz when your mobile operates just on your battery i.e your charger is disconnected.

    This improper grounding basically means that electricity is being conducted through your body to the floor.

    Also try and keep your legs in the air or on wood i.e don’t touch the ground. You won’t find the buzz anymore. Hope this solves it :)

    This is normal. No need to replace.

    And to the guy who suggested it is due to improper grounding, notice that the charger doesn't have a ground pin. So this is bound to happen.

    it is the force being channeling onto you via dash charge. you are "One+" with the force and the force is with you.

    I can't really answer why they're suggesting replacement, but you will find the same thing on the replaced unit as well. I own a lot of devices with metal bodies: tablets, laptops and phones. Most devices have this. That tingly sensation is because some current leaks in the body of the device (which is essentially a ground for the device) and that current passes through your body to the floor. The lower the resistance between you and floor, the stronger the current you'll feel. Try it barefoot and you'll find it getting stronger.
    It is normal. It is well within limits so you won't feel a shock.

    WOW! Can't believe some people here ended up replacing their phone because of this. This is not a hardware fault, neither a software one. And neither does OnePlus has anything to do with it.
    It is due to power sockets in one's house not being properly grounded or due to not having 3rd pin in the charger.
    Just do a google search and you will find it happens to any device that is made up of metal. iPads, macs, Samsung's, htcs, OnePlus, sony or any other manufacturer.
    And because of some users' ingenious attitude, company would have to take back perfectly okay phones causing them losses.
