  6. If you can read 'Safe Mode' at the bottom left corner of the screen, release the Volume Down button. Otherwise, repeat the process until you can boot the phone to Safe mode.
But while in this mode and your phone still shuts down, you can proceed to the next step for their might be a corrupted files and data causing it.

Step 4: Wipe the System Cache Partition
If the caches stored in the directory had become outdated or corrupted it could also trigger different types of performance-related issues like the one you have you have now, that is why it is important to clear the cache partition from time to time to avoid such issues like this to occur on your phone. Although there is no assurance if the problem will be fixed after the method but there were reports from others saying that after performing the method their device is already functioning normally.
