Can anyone please tell me where I can get the details of the Antenna used for the GSM connection in this phone? Like the drawing or schematic.

Please I really need this as this phone has poor cell reception.

My Moto G just burned with 12 V from a cheap auto-recharger. But I lost very important data on the 8 GB memory. Is there a possible way to save the data?
