What we have here is damage Galaxy S5 SIM Tray.  I have no idea what it was attempted to do here. It clearly shows damaged pin thus the phone does not read SIM card. Before we attempt to repair, we have to check what is around the SIM Tray. Obviously, there is battery connector and flash for the camera.  The mic that is sitting on top should not be mattered.
