A data recovery specialist -might- be able to access it.
If you can repair the damage.
Otherwise the outlook is rather bleak.

It's possible a connector was knocked off, so at least open it up and survey the damage before writing it off. Likewise if a daughter board like the jack port pcb was damaged a repair would be fairly easy and inexpensive.

Hmmm, have you tried to put the device in edl mode? If yer not familiar with that, it's qualcomm's emergency download mode. There are lots of references to it in the 'guides' forum as it's used to root the device.

essentially, put it in edl mode, connect to pc and use qfil utility to save 'user data' partition. Mount that user data image, get what you need from it.

I don't have a device connected to edl / qfil in front of me, so the user data partition may not be in the partition list (don't remember), but there are some other utilities that might get it, that come with qfil. If not, use bkerler python edl utilities (find on github), I know for sure they can pull user data partition (it's very very big though, many many gigs).

cheers
