Rear cam, front cam & flashlight not working after accident

Actually my phone was !#^&@@ off by car. But everything is working fine except both cameras & flashlight. Is it MB problem or camera's problem? There is no crashes around front camera but housing around rear camera is totally messed. Is there any common components between rear cam, front cam & flashlight? Should I try on MB or cameras? Or if cameras then which camera I should replace?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You are better off trying to replace the front and rear camera first as they are pretty much cheaper and easier to repair.

If that doesn't work then it's most likely a camera ic / component chip controlling the front and/or rear camera which would need to be replaced as it would be most likely damaged.
