I just fixed mine by hitting it on my knee in the middle of my N5. Some people here are doing the same thing:

Some of us don't so that's why I'm looking towards fixing the problem since I know I'm not the only one and I doubt the issue is defective devices.

Shame. Anyway, a good rule of thumb is that if full flash of factory images and a full wipe without restoring any backups doesn't fix it, it isn't a software problem.
