I bought a brushed aluminum back cover. It's still partially plastic though. My signal drops from 3 bars on LTE down to 4 bars on 4g. When I take it off it goes back to LTE almost instantly. I wouldn't be spuprised if an all metal case blocked reception completely. Look on ebay. I found oem backs for $12-17 all three colors as well.
