    Welcome to the forums.

    After it's been in rice for 24-36 hours put the battery back in and see if it can be resuscitated.

    That's why he said 24hours... Patience is key.

    The longer you leave it immersed in a sealed container of rice, the better your chances of recovery. If you can wait 3-4 days, so much the better.

    Was it fresh water or salt water?

    Also remove the battery any time the phone gets a water accident. And dab off any circuitry with highest concentration rubbing alcohol.

    DO NOT try this until the phone has spent at least 48 hours in the rice - there's no quicker way to permanently ruin the phone than turning it on when components are wet. This isn't one of those phones with the nano-coating...

    Couldn't wait a couple of days to let the components thoroughly dry out?

    Well, I don't know how well sealed the battery casings are - it's possible that the battery is heating up. If you shut the phone down and quickly remove the battery, is the battery still hot or is it the phone that's hot?

    I'm not sure how much it'll help now that you've turned the phone on, but take the battery out again and stuff it back into the rice for a couple of days before you try it again.

    Otherwise, the Nexus 5 and Moto X are great phones.
