    Welcome to Android Central! So this was a new phone, bought from a retail store? Or was it refurbished, or used?

    How long did you wait for the phone to charge before trying to turn it on again? I'd leave it charging on the wall outlet undisturbed for a few hours, then see if you can power it on. If not, take the battery out, lay it flat on a table, and try to spin it. If it spins freely, it's bulging in the middle, which suggests a defective battery. Bring it back to the store and ask for a replacement phone or battery.
