my phone was working the night before and was at about 20% battery life. woke up this morning and saw that it was dead. charged it all morning. i tried to turn it on and it didn't vibrate, no led lights and a black screen. but the battery was hot.

Hello and welcome to Android Central almorale!

Check to see if your battery is OK by using the spin test...

Are you able to boot into Recovery Mode and wipe your phone's cache partition as per #1.3 of S5 Update Problems - Dummies Guide
