Long as there's no physical or water damage. You have 14 days to take it back for a money back guarentee! The store will swap your device out for the same model! Make sure you bring something to reference your purchase! i hope this helps!

In case you hadn't noticed, your phone does not HAVE a removeable battery.

Did your phone shut-off during the night because the battery is empty? If so, just plug the phone into the charger and wait for the charging indicator to appear. Then press and hold the power button and the phone should start up.

Have you tried "hard rebooting"?
Hold Power + Volume Up for about 30seconds.
It's built into Android though usually only useful when a device without a removable battery locks up or won't power-on. Also works on iDevices by holding "HOME" & Power which in the case of iDevices also clears out cache that might be stuck in the system.

Wish I had tried that before returning the phone. Not sure what they tried but they quickly replaced my phone and most of my settings etc. are saved thanks to gmail.
Hoping this one is ok. Thanks to all for your prompt replies. Have a great day!
