The component with the most damage is the capacitor that is burnt there. It goes from vcc main to ground. If it is shorted, which is very likely judging by the looks of it, you will have no power to the rest of the phone. I would test it for a short and remove it (WITH a soldering iron) and test for a short to ground again. If it is not shorted anymore, start the phone making sure nothing gets to hot to touch. The chip there is the wifi/ bluetooth chip. If you knock any of the other components off the board though, you may lose wifi and/or bluetooth. Definitely clean and dry the board too.
