    Poor call reception.

    Would replacing the plastic battery cover with a metal one improve call reception? Would adding a silicon case affect reception?

    Metal one would be worse because it would block the antenna .

    Welcome to the forum

    As noted by @Beer Goggles metal would kill your signal and the WiFi too.

    thanks for the reply. Would a silicon case have the same effect?
