Default [Q] Strange random sound coming from my Nexus 5.

Hi, this use to happen on my Galaxy Nexus and now happens on my Nexus 5. This random fluid sounding set of beeps comes from the phone for no apparent reason. I FINALLY managed to record it after all of these years.

Does anyone know what this means and why it happens? Sometimes it will just do it once sometimes multiple times in succession. Then it might not do it for a week. Doesn't matter if the phone is locked or not. Completely random.....

Thanks in advance!

Could be due to many problems :
1)motherboard is failing
2)ram is failing
3)water damages causing motherboard to trigger speaker at wrong times (short circuitry)

Did you try overclocking it?

I overclocked my galaxy nexus but I haven't even tried to root my nexus 5 so no. I have dropped it a few times. Maybe its just that?

Yeah probably.. Run a logcat to check what's happening
