Default [Q] Quick Fix For Aluminum cases

I'm aware that buying aluminum cases will cause you to lose signal strength. I'm thinking of buying one for my galaxy s5 and was wondering if anybody knows any quick fixes on how to block out losing signal while using the case?

I doubt there is a way.

The reason it affects signal is due to the aluminium material therefore an aluminium case will affect signal.

The aluminum bumper I bought for mine looses gps but not data or phone so I am thinking its the strip around the edge that needs insulation somehow.
