    Default Nexus 5 won't boot *update*

    I was taking a video of my girls. When I was done and hit "home" my screen flashed on and off so I powered off. Then it came back on by itself. At least as far as the splash screen. Then black, then splash screen again. If I hold power / volume down the I get the boot screen but only a flash of it. Then back to the splash screen on and off.
    I've only had this phone for 2 weeks, it's stock from Google and I haven't tinkered with it.
    What should I do? Any suggestions?

    *It just booted in "safe mode". I held volume down while the splash screen was going. How do I get it out of "safe mode" and should I be concerned about this particular device?

    Try clearing the system cache from recovery and see if it boots that way

    You disable safe mode by restarting. Personally I would be calling Google asking for an RMA if you haven't been messing with root and unlocking the bootloader. No way should a new device do something like this.
